“Blue Friday”

I found this recording in the Voice Memos app on my phone back in early June when I was looking for something else.

What I think of as an “audio snapshot,” it was dated February 22, 2019 and titled “Blue Friday.” Check it out!

“Blue Friday” (Original)

“Not bad,” I thought after giving a listen, “but it could use a B section.”

So, having some time, I picked up the sultry siren that had been occupying the guitar stand next to my desk since March… my Fender “Custom 90’s” Telecaster…

… and went to work.

The new B section was completed on June 12, 2020 and pencil sketched on pg. 18 of Volume 4 of my Passantino Music Papers notebooks.

When I could play the piece well enough to attempt an “official” recording, I decided to use my Tele for the voice of “Blue Friday.” This was a major break – Ooo! – with my long-standing tradition of using an acoustic guitar for documenting my instrumentals.

But I’m very glad that I did!

Listen for yourself.

“Blue Friday” (Complete)

Finally, in July, I wrote out a complete Guitar Tablature transcription of “Blue Friday,” thinking that maybe someday another guitar player might want to try their hand at my little composition…

…or, that I would eventually write about “Blue Friday” on sixstrstories.

Guess I was half right, so far.

    It sounds great sixstr…the first one would not play for me but the second one did and it is sweet!

    • Thanks, Max! Sorry about that first recording not playing. I double checked it on all of my devices and it worked for me. Maybe try again? However, I’m very glad you enjoyed the “master track!”

        I just tried again on my phone and it worked so it must be my computer for some reason. Thank you…I enjoyed it.
