新學的歌《Yellow Bird》

凱芹,

嘿嘿!終於有歌跟您獻醜地分享了!

我有位朋友因為要在即將演出的舞台劇裡用結他彈《Yellow Bird》這首歌,他是完全不懂彈結他的,雖然有導師會教他,但我也略盡友誼綿力幫他找我們這些初學者容易入門的彈奏方法,在網上找到了這首歌的chord,再聽了Albert Au的版本學習怎樣彈唱,因為我本身沒有聽過這首歌,然後抄下Melody學唱,再試著彈唱,才發覺原來這首歌很動聽和很有意思的哩!

其實自學結他是打從去年八月中開始,最主要的途徑是問一位在電視台當攝影師的同事(那裡真的卧虎藏龍呀!),他教了我一堂基本功,然後便自己回家練習,不過自己也挺懶,一星期才練得十分鐘,所以到現在還是彈得不太好!

幸好從前學過琴和樂理,雖然已忘得八八九九,但同事教了我怎樣數音階轉Key,遇到一些喜歡的歌但不適合自己的Key,唯有繪個keyboard出來再逐格逐格數手指試著轉Key,大笨拙了!

雖然彈得唱得不好,但還是要錄下來給自己作記錄,一來能看著每個階段的進步過程(希望有進步),二來能給自己警醒,非要進步不可,哈!希望將來能學懂彈奏我最喜歡的女歌手葉德嫻的歌,和我最喜歡的男歌手您的歌吧!

在此跟您分享,別笑我!


小懶咪 敬上


P.S. 我把歌詞中的" I also had a pretty girl, she's not with me today. They're all the same those pretty girls."改成了" I also had a Handsome Boy, he's not with me today. They're all the same those Handsome Boys.",這樣我才唱得出口嘛!哈!
