If not for MeFi Challenge deadlines, I might never actually finish a song. This one has only two chords (D and G). Instruments used, in order of appearance: Autoharp, marimba, marxophone, triangle, glockenspiel, and accordion. [more inside]
For the April two chords challenge: As usual, a repetitive song. This time written in a slightly confusing time signature. [more inside]
Languid and lingual. [more inside]
For the April "two chords" Challenge. The two 3-note chords even share a note in common, so we're talking a total of five notes serving as harmonic accompaniment for this song. Played on the strumstick. There's a hoop drum, too, of indeterminate pitch. I posted a lo-fi, live version of this song to YouTube as well, direct from my 6-mat tatami room at home. You can see it here.
On man.. the first line and the rhythm were written while walking to class three or four years ago in a wisdom tooth Vicodin sunshine. A couple of days before April this year I woke up early some Sunday morning and just started playing the same two 'chords' over and over again (A7#9sus4 (just bar the 5th) and Amaj .. although it probably was closer to Amin/E to Amaj/E). Combine that with a corrupted version of the 'Why don't you move back to Massachusetts!' line from Do the Right Thing and you've got something sounding like early tired Sunday mornings. [more inside]
'Ataraxia' is Greek for 'tranquility', which is what I was trying to convey with this piece. [more inside]
Yes, I already contributed something to the two-chord challenge, but that doesn't mean it's the only song I've done with only two chords. This track uses Fm and G.
A song recorded with Synthesizer and guitar. My submission for the two chords competition [more inside]
A little two-chord reverie that shuffles around for a bit and then disappears. [more inside]
This is an old song, but it only uses two chords (well, okay, so there's a third, brief chord, but still), and it's taken me four years to get around to the massive amount of hiss reduction the song required to make it postable. Because I'm lazy.
Very short and perhaps sweet. I've been working on this kind of music for a while and this is a good example of where I'm at with it right now. Two Chord Challenge!!! ENJOY! [more inside]
For the two chord challenge, though a bit of a cheat because it's more like two notes... [more inside]
Finally -- a MeFiMusic Challenge I can do! Or rather have done. I actually posted this song before, but I've since gone back and cleaned up the EQ and gated some of the noise from the vocal. The two chords used are D and E.
Am7 + Gm7. My submission to the two chord challenge.
My contribution to the two-chord challenge. A sleepy little song with fingerpickin' guitar, piano, and some three part "harmony." I experiment a little more with my voice on this one. [more inside]
A two chord challenge song that EXPLODES! [more inside]
For the April "write a song with only two chords" Music Challenge. Brought to you by the chords E and A. [more inside]
