Harmonica! Hammond!
on: April 05, 2021, 20:59:07
Hi, I'm making a cover version of Charlotte Sometimes (by The Cure) in a Neil Young kinda way. Hopefully I won't get arrested in the process. The song is getting along OK, but it really needs a cool harmonica part or some decent hammond. Feel free to throw some of that my way. We'll share the fortunes.

It's dangerous for me to have a harp in front of me at the end of a long day...with an invitation to play.  8)

And you would be the right man for this job Leonard. I know it's been too long. That was me. I hope you are well. And just throw on that harmonica if you feel like it. It will be great, no doubt!!

Excellent to see you again!

I already took a shot at it last night. I just picked up the D harp and played....it's sloppy but it might work.

The link is in my original post.

O man, I missed that link completely! I like the approach and this will definitely work. I just feel the harp should be there right from bar 1, don't you think? Good job!

It definitely could be there right from the top. I was just winging it last night....wasn't sure where it might work.

Would you like me to track it throughout and send you a wav file? You could put it in the song wherever it felt right to you.

Buddy, that would be great! Ideally I would want you to just go for it a couple of times and send me maybe 2 or three approaches as seperate files. That would give me something to work with. Think Neil. Slow and from the gut. I know that is your field! Thanks in advance.

I can definitely do that. Has to happen on the weekend so I can set things up right.
