Again, being a bassist has helped me be able to sing while playing fairly intricate note sections.

Me too, the bass lines do help me sing also. Sich as the song I Saw Her Standing There.

Bungalow Bob said

Funny Paper said
The charango is also featured on "Duncan" (a song from Paul Simon's first solo album) played by one of the members of the Peruvian folk band "Los Incas", Jorge Milchberg (sounds like an unlikely name for a Peruvian guy, eh?) -- same band as featured on "El Condor Pasa" as Bungalow Bob mentioned above.

I consider Paul Simon a master craftsman songwriter. But "Duncan" stands out as an oddity. In the second verse, he sings "I was born in the boredom and the chowder"… and then in the line that's supposed to rhyme, he sings "I… headed down the turnpike for New England." So, a master craftsman songwriter rhymes "chowder" with "New England!?!" No, I'm sorry Paul, that doesn't work. I know that great tunesmiths can break the rules, and sometimes get away with close rhymes, or incorrect English, or what-have-you. But that was lazy songwriting, and just lands with a thud. You could have massaged the wording, and said something like "The call of New England kept getting louder," to rhyme it with "chowder." Something along those lines…

Listen to me; I sound like Art Garfunkel after a few-too-many after-dinner drinks, provoking his erstwhile singing partner. :D

Now, to bring this back on topic, I play guitar, piano, and tambourine… lead and rhythm tambourine. (I'm not a particularly gifted musician.)

Many times I don't see new comments, so several days may go by, or I never see them because I don't want to spend time plowing through older threads.  Anyway, I've listened to "Duncan" probably 100 times (and played along with it on my guitar) and never noticed the "chowder/England" problem before!

The chowder line is too good to change, and he had to have a reference to New England -- so the solution would have been to create a whole new stanza, first one to rhyme with chowder, then a new one where the rhyme ends on New England.

Merry Christmas, @Funny Paper!

Thanks MrMoonlight!  Very helpful (if only for my guitar riffing with the song).  I don't think I could ever play that on the piano without hours of practice.  However, the person playing the piano there when he does all the fingers together still seems to be not quite doing what I'm hearing on the Beatles record -- Paul seems to be doing more arpeggio interweaving of notes, and I don't hear those block chords as the tube player is doing.

I'm going to try and redesign my old guitar like these - not as elaborately steampunk, but the sort of old-fashioned, wood-and-chrome design.

EDIT: Something like this specifically.

Piano is the basis for everything. It's frustrating and takes up too much time, but it will be worth learning. If you ever want any tips ask me because I've been playing for too long.

I played piano for about 5 years, but I stopped because I would almost faint during my lessons, worst years of my life.

I currently play spoons (I know it sounds silly) and I was in a band up until a month ago.

Nothing wrong with playing spoons and who knows where it will lead.

I hope the fainting has stopped and you're better.

I fainted a couple of years ago; managed to stumble my way to the bathroom and then collapsed (it wasnt planned that way). My father took me up to the doctors (i phoned him and he came home) and they couldnt find my blood pressure it was that low. Was advised to go straight to hospital. Was related to other heath issues. Not nice when your GP spends 5 minutes trying to find out if its his equipment or its you as you sit there feeling like crap thats been stepped in. a-hard-days-night-paul-7
