30-Day Song Challenge: Day 26 & 27

Day 26: A song that you can play on an instrument.

"Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon.

I chose this song out of all that I can play on bass for the simple fact that I really like LOVE it. This is one of the first songs I learned as it has an easy, uncomplicated bassline. I finally decided to upload our band's video when we covered it in our 2011 Christmas party. I know, I said I'll wait for the better quality video but unfortunately, we can't open the file. Ugh! Dunno, must be the codec or something and no matter how I convert it, it always fails. So I just settled for this. Not that bad though, just made me a bit dizzy due to all that camera-shaking. Haha!





Please pardon the sound quality. Honestly, I believe it was a lot better in the studio than in the venue.




Day 27: A song that you wish you could play.
 
"Timepiece Phase II" by Hirofumi Sasaki.

This is the longer version of the track from DrumMania and GuitarFreaks. It's so cool, combining rock and jazz into one epic piece! Every sound from every instrument is just pure ear-candy! I certainly love listening to it on a bit higher volume to absorb everything. Gah! I definitely wish (with emphasis on WISH) to be able to play this. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this uses an upright bass. I can only play electric/acoustic bass right now, and I don't think it'll sound the same. But nevertheless, to be able to play this... *sigh*

Aa~ This is sooo impossible right now, but I'll keep trying harder. Haha... Ganbare!




Ja ne!
