Or should I call it the ultimate challenge ?

Why do we consider this as the ultimate challenge....
2 reasons :
1. We consider it as one of the most beautiful french songs ever written, the original was performed by a french singer called Barbara.
To make sure there is room for everybody, I"ve played only the piano, which makes that the song can take everything : bass, rythmic guitar, string, solo guitar,.... So, are looking for contributions.
2. The musical difficulty Wink
The song changes key at every verse  Shocked you'll better know your instrument  Grin
It turns on a 8 bar sequence
First sequence is :
D-A-Em-B-G-D-C-Bm/A
Then the next sequence is
Eb-Bb-Fm-C-Ab-Eb-Db-Cm/Bb
and so on
this way it goes up 6 times until the break
after the break it start again in D with the first sequence and goes up 4 times until the end.

Now, who is up for this musical challenge  Evil
We'll probably re-record the vocal track once we have the full instrumental tracks.

K

PS : If someone has troubles figuring out all the chords, I can post the whole chord chart

ok  Wink
We allmost have a band
- Keys - ok
- Bass - ok
- Guitar solo - ok

Still need :
- Rythmic guitar
- Strings

To give you an idea of the level we're aiming  Shocked

This is the original : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SwH4qBEESY&feature=related
This is our favourite version : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCGPwo28XPo

Obviously we won't copy a version, but will make our own top level version  Cool

I'm convinced that we have some of finest musicians here, so we can do this  

k

By the way, we will perform this live at the next KM gig  Wink

Hmmmm ....
I just been working through this and feel that you are leading us astray somewhat  Cool

Going along with your recording of the song ...
the pattern increases by a semitone each 8bar sequence for 4 sequences, then goes back by 2.

In other words ... first chord of each sequence:
D...Eb...E...F...then back to(when we are expecting F#) ...E...F...then up to F# for the mid-section, before going back to the start.
 Huh

Is this correct, Oh Maestro?

You're right James, my explication was confusing !
To be sure :
First 8 bars D
2 - Eb
3- E
4- F
Then drum starts
5-E
6. F
7 only 4 chord until drums stop with crash : F#-C#-G#m-Eb
After drum stop B-F# and a litle riff on F#
The we start all over with 1,2,3 & 4

May we have a BPM number so our tempo is accurate?

For this production, I'd like to work out my electric guitar - just some (tasteful, I hope Cheesy) background material. I'll record enough for the whole song and you can use as much of it as seems appropriate.

Accurate  Undecided
Do you realy expect me to play this at an exact BPM  Grin
BPM should be 'around' 90  Cheesy

 Cool
Here is my first attempt at the Bass line.
I've played through the whole song, so just use what you need.

If you need refinements just say so.  Roll Eyes

This is a cool bass track James  Cool
For the moment I only cut the 2 measures after the drums, I'll decide what to keep once I have all tracks  Smiley

Thanks for the contribution

 Cool
Now that I have worked through the patterns I could also contribute a 'finger picked' acoustic guitar, I think.  Roll Eyes

Would this be of any use?   Lips Sealed
