    That's a cool idea Tommy. It takes some extra effort to be sure but I can see the advantages. When working on memorizing stuff, the more ways your brain can interpret the material the better. Working with language and color perceptions can be a powerful combo. Thanks for sharing your method.

    With the wonderful topic for Rustyy's Season 196, there are quite a few songs I could do, but I'm still nearly down for the count at the end of week two of having the Flu.

    Saw the doctor on Monday, and confirmed it was 'the Flu' as opposed to some severe random cold. Fluids and rest were advised.

    No way to sing like this (coughing too much) and I am not happy, as well as feel like the walking dead.

    I guess I'll have to save the songs for when I recover and then post them on the Island.

    Sorry if this is not a happy note, but I just had to vent and tell somebody, I hope you all can understand.

    Thanks for listening.

    Sorry, Booli, that you're under the weather. It takes the sparkle out of a day. Seems like a good time to relax and LISTEN to music instead of playing it. Let Time do its work, and before long you'll be back strutting your stuff.

    I had only one very moderate goal: to be able to strum some chords on something in order to accompany my own singing, mostly for my own enjoyment. But I have found that playing for others gives me a whole higher level of satisfaction.
    My goal continually evolves everytime I log onto YT and find something else that catches me in awe, I just wanna be as good as I can get and am enjoying the journey.
    The thought of playing on a stage to others is the best known laxative for mankind for me .......Intimate jammin behind closed doors with a few like minded friends is more my style.

    I've always been the same .........I remember my drama teacher pushing me to play a lead in her production of 'Grease' ........I was mortified and Insisted on being the background guy holding a cardboard cut out of the car !! I would love to write music for a living but would want to be the Bernie Taupin who enjoys relative anominity than Elton John whos in the public eye. (I've never understood why people want fame and all the trappings it brings?) Lol

    Thanks for the idea Ginny!

    That strutting hawk picture is great, he looks so intent, almost angry, and the picture gave me a good laugh, so thank you for that too

    Thanks Andrew! I know, right?

    I guess being laid up gives a clearer perspective to better appreciate the days when we are not afflicted with some impediment.

    I am trying hard to look on the bright side.

    I have see many posts in this thread about learning tunes and the difficulties of transcribing/ reading notation for use in making videos. When preparing a song for the Seasons I copy the lyrics and chords when available. If I have to correct or figure the chord I do so but start with the lyrics in the the associated chord family color. I can then put in the chords fairly quickly based on the color wheel. There is a big advantage in using color for the chord families IMO Groups of people who are illiterate, have poor vision or dyslexic can use it. Color Blind folks would require some adaptation. But it works well for me.

    Below you will find an easy way to transpose chords. I use the ROYGBIV method. The idea goes back to Sir Issac Newton I think, but I came up with it idependently. When I Transcribe a song I assign the tonic Chord the color Red The 4th chord would be green the fifth chord blue.
    If you were to play I'll fly away in the key of D Red=D, Green =G, Blue=A7. Key of G: Red=G, Green =C, Blue=D7.

    I=R, II=O, III=Y, IV=G, V=B, VI=I VII=V

    Key of C: I=C, II=D, III=E, IV=F, V=G7, VI=A VII=B
    C7 Em G Am

    I'llFly Away Lyrics

    [G]Somebright morning when this life is o'er, [C]I'll fly[G]away

    Toa home on God's celestial shore, I'll [D7]fly a-[G]way
    Tommy, this is freakin' brilliant! I was traveling most of November and missed so much amazing stuff in this thread ... this most of all just blows me away. Fantastic way to train the brain to recognize the relationships among the chords, and how they fit the lyrics and melody. I can't imagine going back and doing this to all my charts ... but ... man, I want what this offers!

    Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday week. I am so excited for Season 202 and the New Year and to see what you all will bring to our holiday party next week!
