Hello Kitchen Fellows
Here is my entry for the 3 chord competition.For me it was a lot of fun and interesting to find out how to modify the sound of a chord. I think about to make a one chord song. ;D ;D ;D

59 Three Chords Till End    Kapo 5     Dezember 2013

Intro) There are only three chords left
till this story ends

1) The last bat flowing home
daylight cast out the light of the moon
soon the clouds will be gone away
birds wake up pipe their hello
Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf Pf
first shafts of sunlight break through
soon sun will kiss the whole ground

2) Tonight he looked intoo a mirror
the more he drank the darker his thoughts
a final drink a simper lough
then he walked out intoo the dark
first shafts of sunlight break through
soon sun will kiss the whole ground

3) A drunken man walkes through the streets
most of what he sees brings back his memories
every night he tried to teach
a way into a better world he himself never reached
first shafts of sunlight break through
soon sun will kiss the whole ground

4) The night slightly goes away
bats sleep peaceful in their cave
birds sing from hope and from glory
he lies there among his dreams
he finished his own story
first shafts of sunlight break through
sun forgot to kiss also you

Hi Alexander,

I truly expected that you would write a song using more than 3 chords - perhaps 4, 5 or even more. I then expected you to remove the chords but still keep the vocal melody, perhaps let drums carryy the tune thereafter.   I think that you or anyone else adopting this approach would still be working within the rules.

Anyway, I can see that your approach has been to build each verse with additional riffs that add a little extra each time to the arrangement.  You've made this arrangement work by presenting a repeated verse pattern - I suppose a real test would have been for you to experiment with using contrasting verses, exploring different vocal melodies, and using the chords for different durations of time.  For example, letting a chord last for two bars in the first section before changing to another for two bars - when approaching the second verse, you might have decide to let 2 chords occupy a single bar. Anyway, that's just banter about approaches.  I enjoyed this very much and as ever, loved the sound of your guitars!  :)

Fisch!!

This is bloody excellent mate, really really good. You'd never guess it was only three chords (well mostly 2)

Lovely production and some great whistling, really classy, really cool

A very strong contender for this competition ;D
