Day 300: Suddenly I See with MOM!!!!!!

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

WE MADE IT TO 300 POSTS!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!! To celebrate, I thought I would post this recording I did with my awesome, creative, talented mother! I went home for the first time in quite awhile last weekend, so I took advantage of the situation! A mutual artist that mom and I like is KT Tunstall, so we decided to cover her song, Suddenly I See!

Mom refused to look up the chords because, as she said, “That takes the fun out of it!” so we listened to it until she figured them out! By the time we got ready to record it, mom’s hands were getting pretty tired on the guitar, but we pressed on! I left the recording exactly as we did it– the full take, without any editing– because I thought it was funny! Mom messed up at the beginning at first, but then started over so fast that I wouldn’t have been able to cut out our talking anyways! And in the middle of the song, I couldn’t figure out exactly how I was supposed to come in on the bridge, so my mom told me to just do it, so I did! You also get to hear us laughing at the end, so I think it’s all fun. :) Mom wanted me to make sure and tell you that guitar isn’t her primary instrument and she’s much better at piano, but I think she did great! We recorded the guitar and me singing first, then recorded mom over that!

Suddenly I See

I think KT wrote this song about some celebrity or something that she wanted to be like, but I think it relates to mom and I well because mom is someone I definitely look up to and hope to be like! Love you, Mama! I had such a good time with you last weekend! :*

Thanks to all of you for bearing with me through 300 posts! It is taking me so much longer than originally planned to do this project, but I’m still enjoying it and having fun, so that’s all that matters, right? 65 more posts to go… I look forward to each and every one!

Day 116(2 days late): Zeitgeist with Mom!!

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

Today’s my last day at home, sadly, because I have to work tomorrow. :( I wanted to do something with my mom, so we decided that she could play guitar with me. I already recorded Zeitgeist by Smashing Pumpkins once acapella, but I really wanted to do it with guitar, so that’s what she did with me! She also jumped in and did some harmony! At the end is her roommate, Jacque, saying “Alright!!” and clapping cause she liked it hahaha!! :D

Zeitgeist

I think that this is one of my all-time favorite SP songs and it was made even better by recording it with my mom!

And now back to the real world of Knoxville!
