I hear it as Fmin7 - Cmin7/F* - Bb - Cmin7

Same think JK said except with an added C in the chord. RH G/Bb/C/Eb as opposed to just G/Bb/Eb

Yes indeed. I'll agree with that. It makes the change to a straightforward B flat chord even more stunning.

The wedding was rather dreamlike. We were at a mountain chapel, in the clouds, misty. We all agreed that the only thing missing was bagpipes.  Smiley

The following night I had a dream that I was walking by a building and a brass band was rehearsing "Trombone Dixie." Thought I heard someone who sounded like Brian giving instructions.
So that tune was in my head. Another ear worm was the first part of "Holidays" from TSS.
Had a wonderful time shopping at a calligraphy shop and another place specializing in Weather and Astronomy items.

After reading the SS posts about Dennis and that movie he was in (have never seen it so don't know if he could "act" or not), I woke up this morning to the ear worm of the chorus for Slip On Through.
Will be home tomorrow. Back to reality.

Wow. Quite a musical trip, by the sound of things. ;=)

I've been thinking about this and decided it's absolute genius!

I see they've uploaded the video on YouTube:

But why is he screwing the table? LOL

I miss the Captain's food posts.

If ever I need to give my computer keyboard a wash I take a look at the captain's food posts. Keyboard's clean in no time. LOL

Sam, this is what I hear (as a non-guitarist). Upper case (a capital letter) indicates a drop down to the next note and lower case a rise. Both chords (D♭ and B♭m) have this same eight-note pattern. Just the bass note changes.

D♭  A♭  F   g♭  F   D♭  f   a♭

You can hear it pretty clearly here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0C7VjKIpf08

Hope this helps!

If SUSA saw the Boys progressing by leaps and bounds, Surfer Girl was their first truly great album. Brian's officially at the helm, Alan and David are both on board and so is Maureen, with first tentative Wrecking Crew appearances by Hal Blaine and Steve Douglas.

It combines an astonishing degree of maturity, considering their ages at the time, with an innocence and real joy that was not to last long.

Looked at that way, perhaps it's their finest hour. 5.

Hey everyone,

I'm currently working on finishing my cover of Surf's Up but I have run into a bit of an issue. Due to the layering of harmonies and massive amounts of reverb on the master track, it is hard for me to pick apart the harmonized chords at the end of the song. I can't tell if the progression is Fm-EbM-Fm6-EbM or it is AbM-Gm-Fm-EbM. Can anyone help me? Any tips would be appreciated- at least I got the other parts figured out!

Hi Ryan, as I hear it the piano chords are basically as follows (you can hear them here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3TRns_zssM). The letter after the slash is the bass note:

Ab/F - Eb/F - Bb7 - Cm7

Actually, the sevenths in the last two chords are not particularly strong in the finished result so you could be excused for leaving them out. ;=)

Hope this helps.

I see the captain and Will (and Silken) haven't shown up here for a while.

Maybe it's lively enough over at PSF right now without the onus of having to post on another board.

Time will tell (it always does)...

14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who other than Dennis would have been good in a film? on: May 26, 2017, 12:10:33 PM
Yes, Ricky definitely -- loved him as Stig. Besides Ricky and Dennis, the other BBs have always come across as uncomfortable when they tried to act. We'll get a chance to see how David does on Decker -- if any of the other guys can act, he might be the one. He's a naturally funny guy.

No idea what Decker is but yes, I can see David in an acting role. There's something natural and relaxed about him lacking in the others. Of course, he's less encumbered by the "baggage" they've had to carry over the years for various reasons.

We're forgetting Ricky Fataar as Stig O'Hara in All You Need Is Cash...

Wait, that's a misprint on the cover - shouldn't it be "Shunshine Tomorrow?"

I've been singing it all week but now I'm singing this. Damn. LOL
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who other than Dennis would have been good in a film? on: May 26, 2017, 07:54:19 AM
Regarding Beatles - disagree as well. BBs had sense of humor alright, it's just different than so-called British humor.

A little less of the so-called, if you don't mind. LOL

And that's humour with a "u". (Give me strength.)

According to Jon Stebbins, "David broke out his old Sears Silvertone acoustic" for this one. Was this his last BB session first time round?

Lovely song, great chords. 5.

Thank you, sir. It's great to see you around again.

Yes, time----a major problem. I hope to find some soon and check these out. =)
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Barry Manilow on: May 25, 2017, 12:33:12 PM


Yes, thanks HJ for the well executed logic. Years ago, back in and around 1972, I had lunch with Manilow and a popular DJ. We ate at a hamburger joint at a small table. I had heard things through the rumor mill about his preferences but it was no big deal to me. He came off as a down to earth, interesting person that one could relate to quite easily. He lavished heaps of praise upon Bruce and his songwriting. Came away thinking he was a good guy for sure.

Good post!

Yes indeed. So much for BM taking all the credit for "IWTS"! Thanks, OSD.

But would anyone really object if he changed tack mid tour? Say if he started doing only a selection from PS (which might change nightly), interspersed with everything else? I very much doubt it. Surely most of his audience are only too happy to see their idol alive and reasonably well. And enjoying himself making music with his band.

Duh. This is BBs list. Solo works don't count, don't you see? Isn't there Al vocal you like in BBs?

I don't see BB anywhere. Still, if it makes you happy I'll vote for the second track on side two of Surf's Up, my favourite BB album. :=)

24  Smiley Smile Stuff / Polls / Re: Favorite Lead Vocals by Al Jardine on: May 25, 2017, 02:43:56 AM
Slight dilemma here. My choice would be "Tell Me Why"----from NPP. Whereas the "Tell Me Why" on the list is clearly from Party!. 

Al's entry on the BW song brings tears to my eyes. A bit like when Freddie takes over from Brian May on "Who Wants To Live Forever"...
