Fall Down Chord Chart

Hi All, I’m starting a new musical journey (side street?):) documenting learning to play the ukulele. I thought I would add a page where I list the chords for the original songs that I add from my videos. Please feel free to play them. All I ask is that if you record and post publicly, add in a link of this website somewhere. I’ll post the corresponding video link below each song! Thank you!:)

Fall Down:

Intro: C     F  G   C

[G]I can’t [C]forget this [G]part of [FGC]regret

[G]Where you left me [AmC]slowly, [G]step by [C]step.

[G]So what happens [C]next?  [G]When all that’s[FGC] finally left

[G]Are dead notes and [AmC]raw emotions [G]better left [C]unsaid.

The Last Goodbye::William Playlie::Producer

Because sometimes just a piano and strings will do. Producer, William “WP” Playlie is the kind of talented and skilled professional a musician always feels lucky to have worked with. For someone like me; it is truly an honor! 🙂 🙂

Kim’s Bucket List Adventure — Winter Series in Germany — 2016March

I put together a quickie video of me having the last minute opportunity to sing live in Germany with super duper guitarist, Stefan; and also recording at my friend Simon’s studio!!  More of that??  Yes, please!  🙂 🙂

Hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciated the opportunities! 🙂 🙂

Hold On::Mark Jackson::Producer

There are times in music collaboration when magic just happens. It’s nothing you’ve done or worked for but someone just comes along and sprinkles fairy dust on an offering and BAM! It becomes a a beautiful song that you did not anticipate. This is one of those times.

I uploaded some a-capella singing (lead vocals and backups) and Mark Jackson of Portugal came along and added rhodes, guitar fun, a spiffy guitar solo, and some energetic percussion to make it oh sooo sweet! And my plaid brother, Nigel, from Scotland added his mastering touch to the track.  Here’s the result–we hope you enjoy it! 🙂 🙂

{lyrics}

Take your time and finish what you started.
Like in life; rushing through half-hearted;
Only leads to more and more trouble.
This time around we gotta be careful.

So Hold On to me.

Don’t ever wanna face a day without you.
My dreams are always filled with us in view.
Make these moments count and let’s slow down.
And leave the cares and worries for others to doubt.

Remember when you’re scared and feeling low.
I’m the one who cares and would love to show
Each time you fall away, I’m here for you.
You’re never out of reach for me to come through.

Breakout::Billy LeCoq-Mauvais::Producer

It’s hard to believe it’s been over five months since we put this song together. Yet, I’m still surprised and delighted that Billy, a premier musician and engineer, found my audition for RX’s industrial music and decided to put some of his magical producing energy into it. I like to think of Billy as the Willy Wonka of music because he truly is “the man with the golden ticket.” His education, experience, skill and heart to make not just entertaining music, but “smart” tunes as well; makes him one of the premier producers to work with; and I was thrilled to be able to be part of this great production.

Here’s our rendition of this dystopian-themed tune started by the fabulous RX!

{lyrics}

You’re just another number to them.
A shadowy figure to forget.
A bar code; generic; someone to push around.
It’s just another Monday to live.
A uniform to show no hers or his.
The masses two by two; they march putting one foot in front of the other.

Breakout; don’t let them see you broken. Take out all the pieces that no longer fit because you’re whole and put back everything they’ve stolen from you; you’ve got to refuse, They’ll never give in. You must make amends with yourself and Breakout of the mold they keep trying to push you back in. Breakout to win back yourself. Breakout.

Now That You’re Gone::featuring Tony Fleitas music and Kip Dalpe Singing and Guitar

This is my first original song live recorded on a horrible tablet but cleaned up and mastered by the master engineer himself, Nigel Robinson (Gemini) of Scotland.

Tony Fleitas (mingyakyak) created this beautiful music and melody. This version features Kip Dalpe (singing partner extraordinare) singing backups and playing a beautiful guitar.

This was only for practice but had to post this since it’s our very first live recorded *ORIGINAL* tune!! Special thanks to Tony, Kip and Nigel!! Hope you enjoy it as much as we had fun singing it!! 🙂 🙂
