Who Can Sail? - Vem kan Segla



City of StockholmImage via Wikipedia

who can sail without wind... a piano song played by my friend Ballademaker from Norway.



Ballademaker says:

"this a well known song here in Norway, its a nice song when the spring time is coming back i think enjoy it i have enjoyed since i was a little boy learn it first time of age of 10. its swedish jazz version."

This is a traditional Swedish Folk Song. The arrangement and English translation by Russell Packard. Russell packard is a founding member and the director of Crossing Borders, a global music ensemble. Russell learned "Vem kan segla while riding on a ship from Stockholm to Helsinki. The message of this folk song is that friendship is foremost and universal and that, without friendship, life has no meaning. The song dates back to the 1700s. I really like the minor sounds in this song.

Learn To Play Take the Long Way Home by Supertramp






Now I know who Roger Hodgson is! A friend from Norway sent me a video of his and I admired his keyboard playing and unforgettable voice.

"Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, song writers and lyricists of our time. As the legendary voice of Supertramp and composer of the band’s greatest hits, he gave us “Give a Little Bit”, “The Logical Song”, “Dreamer”, “Take the Long Way Home”, “Breakfast In America”, “It’s Raining Again”, “School”, and “Fools Overture” and so many others that have become the soundtrack of our lives. His trademark way of setting beautiful introspective lyrics to upbeat melodies resonated and found its way into the hearts and minds of people from cultures around the world. His songs have remarkably stood the test of time and earned Roger and Supertramp an adoring worldwide following." For more of the article:

http://www.rogerhodgson.com/documents/bio.html




"Charles Roger Pomfret Hodgson, born 21 March 1950, in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England is a British vocalist and musician, and he was one of the founding members of the progressive rock group Supertramp. He is recognised for his high-pitched singing voice, which became a trademark for Supertramp, and often writes about somewhat spiritual and philosophical topics. He's been given the nickname of Mr. Supertramp by fans."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Hodgson


(1969-1983) Supertramp

As a copyright agreement similar to Lennon/McCartney with The Beatles, almost all Supertramp songs were credited to Davies and Hodgson, regardless of who actually wrote them, but, the person you hear singing the song is the person who wrote it. Roger Hodgson is the main writer of well known hits such as "The Logical Song", "Dreamer", "Give A Little Bit", "Breakfast in America", "It's Raining Again", "Take the Long Way Home" and "Fool's Overture".

Supertramp Wikipedia:

"Supertramp were a British progressive rock band that released a series of top-selling albums in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Their early music included ambitious concept albums, from which were drawn a number of hits including "Bloody Well Right", "Dreamer", "Goodbye Stranger", "Give a Little Bit", and "The Logical Song". Supertramp attained superstardom[citation needed] in the United States, Canada, most of Europe, and Brazil, although they were not quite as popular in their home country, the UK. Nonetheless, the album Breakfast in America was a big hit there, reaching number three on the UK charts and featuring two top 10 singles." Read more:

Linda McCartney: background vocals
Unknown overdubs: two trumpets, two trombones, one tenor sax, two cellos, choir

History:

* Written by Paul during the sessions for The Beatles (a/k/a the "White Album"), "Let It Be" was inspired by a dream the singer had of his deceased mother, Mary, assuring him, amongst the turmoil of the Beatles' slow breakup, that everything would be all right. McCartney eventually transformed the song into a gospel-style number for the Get Back sessions that would eventually be released as the album Let It Be.
* The earliest known performance of "Let It Be" occurred on January 3, 1969, during rehearsals for the LIB project. It was rehearsed over 38 times on January 8, 9, 25-27, 29, and 31, 1969; Take 27 from the 31st was used as the basis for the official release. That take featured the song's third verse, written on the spot by Paul after it was decided one was needed.
* On April 30, 1969, producer George Martin recorded a new solo from Harrison, although the single release of "Let It Be" would use the original solo from January 31, 1969.
* On January 4, 1970, George recorded yet another guitar solo, which was meant to sync up with the earlier solo and play simultaneously (this idea was later scrapped). Martin added backing vocals from Linda McCartney, at the insistence of Paul, and the resultant mix, with the original solo only, became the "single version" of "Let It Be."

Learn To Play Dreaming With A Broken Heart and Waiting On The World To Change by John Mayer

John MayerJohn Mayer via last.fm

JOHN MAYER

John Mayer is a brilliant singer- songwriter and he is only 31 years old! His first two
studio albums, Room for Squares and Heavier Things were released in 2003. Heavier Things made a huge hit with my piano students, especially the song called “Daughters”. It was a huge success all over giving John Mayer his first number one single with the song “Daughters” as well as a Grammy award in 2005 for song of the year.

John Mayer began his career performing mainly acoustic rock and pop, but gradually began a transition towards the blues genre around 2005. The blues influence can be heard on his album Continuum, released in September 2006.

I could go on and on about what a great guy John Mayer is, the changes in his musical direction, all of his great projects and numerous awards. But you can read his biography for yourself.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Mayer_(pop_singer)



There is a song on John’s Continuum album that I enjoy playing and have taught my students. It’s called “Waiting On The World To Change”. The song was the third most downloaded song of the week on the iTunes Music Store following its release on July 11, 2006, and debuted at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Here’s the break down. It’s an easy chord progression:

D Bm G D

A Bm G D

There is a bridge part that goes:

Bm to em7 ( 2 times )

Listen to the song and jam along, whether your instrument is piano or guitar!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPOBMzMTP4U


***************************************

This is pretty much the piano part for the whole song which you could play on the guitar
piano. Either way it's still a really good song

Intro: G C(#1st) C
NOTE: The C(#st) is just a C#, E, and G which is basically a C chord with C# instead of
C itself. I didn't know what else to call it.
You can play it like (x 4 2 0 2 0)

G C(#1st) C
When you're dreaming with a broken heart
G C(#1st) C
The waking up is the hardest part
G C(#1st) C
You roll outta bed and down on your knees
G C(#1st) C
And for the moment you can hardly breathe
G/E D G G/B G/C
Wondering was she really here?
G/E D G G/B G/C
Is she standing in my room?
G/B G/C G/B G/Bb
G
No she's not, 'cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone....
G C(#1st) C
When you're dreaming with a broken heart
G C(#1st) C
The giving up is the hardest part

G/E D G G/B G/C
Wondering could you stay my love?
G/E D G G/B G/C
Will you wake up by my side?
G/B G/C G/B G/Bb

* Chord Chart

Intro: G Am


1. It's close to mid...night and something evil's lurking in the dark,

under the moon...light you see a sight that almost stops your heart.

You try to scre...am , but terror takes the sound before you make it.

You start to fre...eze, as horror looks you right between the eyes,

you're paralyzed.
Am C
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night,
D F
and no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike.
Am C
You know it's thriller, thriller night,
D F G Am
you're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

2. You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run.

You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun.

You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination,

but all the while you hear the creature creepin' up behind,

you're out of time.
Am C
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night,
D F
there ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes.
Am C
You know it's thriller, thriller night,
D F G A
you're fighting to survive inside a killer, thriller tonight.

Night creatures call, and the dead start to walk in their masquerade.

There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time.

this is the end of your life.

3. They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side.

They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial.

Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together,

all thru the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen,

I'll make you see...
Am C
That this is thriller, thriller night,
D F
'cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try.
Am C
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night,
D F
so let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller,
G Am
thriller here tonight.


Am C
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night,
D F
and no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike.
Am C
You know it's thriller, thriller night,
D F G Am
you're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight
