High Five Ricky! (Not familiar with what song it is though)
This is how I go completely insane by the way. I have been hitting those notes and go “oh yeah this.” then go figuring out something to some song and having 0 clue who did it, what the lyrics are, or even what decade it came from. (Try looking THAT up.)
After you have a bit of time from Sleepwalking, you should write down what you have of the notes though. So you don’t forget.
(Try looking up the chords on uke or guitar too. Then it’s just a matter of finding out how to play the chords on uke. Chances are they probably aren’t weird jazz chords right?)October 21, 2019 at 4:30 pm #32830
Yes it is an insanity inducer. I bet a lot of us do this from time to time.
The song is “The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else” probably from the 1920s. You’re right, the chords should be simple enough no jazz chords ha. But don’t get me started with old standard songs, I probably know them all. LOL. I just wrote down those few notes: d-e-d-e-d-e-d-e-g-a-b. Put it on the back burner for more free time……Just for grins, here’s the song by,to me, a most underrated Doris Day:October 22, 2019 at 12:21 am #32836miztakenParticipant
@rickeymike – here is the link for the Frank Sinatra version…. save yourself some pain.
and sometimes I buy tabs from sheetmusicplus so that I can transcribe to an ukulele tab…
or Etta Jones version…
(but really all the same, almost).

Neat-O, Miz. Thanks so much!October 22, 2019 at 7:05 pm #32851lisadmhParticipant
Ha, fun! That’d be a great song to get arranged.
Tangents like that are exactly how I write songs. I’m doing something else, and, hey, that sounds interesting. What can I do with that? And bang, I’m into guitar pro trying to work out my own little ditty and add to it and build upon it, the original task forgotten.October 24, 2019 at 8:56 pm #32954lyndallkParticipant
Nice one Rickey!November 4, 2019 at 10:32 am #33389willymacParticipant
That happens to me all the time too. I’m playing a song and a phrase reminds me of some other song, and I can’t get that other so g out of my head.
