Rock, Paper, Scissors

April 7, 2011 8:38 AM

I've been trying to come up with a love story titled ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS for a movie, but this fell out instead. Video link inside.

I've been sitting in the damn La-Z-Boy for five weeks with a broken leg. I got my wife to put the acoustic guitar right next to it, and this funny little chord sequence dropped out one day, so I turned it into a song. Recorded on my laptop mic cos I can't get the damn guitar upstairs to the studio and my wife is out. However, that does mean you get BONUS VIDEO!!! of my crappy singing and playing.

One take, as if that excuses anything.

But scissors can cut the wick of the dynamite.

What guitar is that? I'd guess a Simon and Patrick or Art & Lutherie or something of that ilk.

Not in my rules, Chococat!

The way we play it, Dynamite beats everything but you only get to play it once in the game.

Spot on with the guitar, it's a Simon and Patrick Songsmith. Cheap as all get out and masses of fun to play.

They are great guitars, aren't they?
I think I've mentioned that I recently got a little A&L Cedar Ami parlor guitar. Love it.

Yeah, and don't think I haven't been looking at them, Chococat.

We Canucks are really spoilt with all the Godin sub-brands.

Okay, I made an electric powerpop version. Rough mix here.

Ok, I like them both, but this one better than the powerpop....although, it may be I'm just in an acoustic mood nowish.
