HeeEEey!

How are you?? Sooo, it’s a threee daaaaaay weeeeekeeeend! yeehaw! Wow, in my old office working life, I would be super excited…but no longer. EVERY DAY IS EXCITING! I work without working. Floatin round the town, teaching aerobics and guitars. :-D

As I write this I’m listening to Ariana Grande’s new album. . . it’s ok…there are some good musical moments, but she keeps cursing. Is that really necessary? Or is she trying to earn cool points? Am I getting old? I don’t want to be one of those old farts that hate all new music, haha … PRINCE FOREVER!! …The 1st song called Moonlight is my favorite. Probably because it sounds like an oldie. haha!

Come see the Wopbops this Tuesday 5/31 at Anacostia Arts Center! We are keepin the 50′s aliiiiiive!

1231 Good Hope Road SE! Free! All ages! 7-9PM


SONGWRITING TIP

sexy sections!
Song sections! Make them contrast to keep your song interesting. You can put an instrumental hook in the intro, and then sprinkle it throughout the song like fairy dust. .. verse and chorus should have very different melodies so you can tell them apart. Switch up the rhythm, the phrasing…Justin Timberlake has many good songs that have like 5 or 7 different sections…Intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, 2nd chorus/hook, bridge, and some kind of outro. 

 GUITAR TIME! 

somebody call Fire Marshall Bill, cuz this song is HOT! yowza!

almost burnt my fingers figuring the chords out!

by Justin Timberlake

…………C……………………………Am7

I got this feeling, inside my bones

It goes electric, wavy when I turn it on

………………………C………………………….Am7…

All through my city, all through my home

………………………G………………………………………F…..

We’re flying up, no ceiling, when we in our zone

[cue the funky strummin’]

…………….C………………………………….

I got that sunshine in my pocket

…………….Am7……………………………..

Got that good soul in my feet

………………G…………………………………………..F………

I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh

………..C…………………………………………………………………Am7……….

I can’t take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally

……………G…………………………………………………..F……

Room on lock the way we rock it, so don’t stop

[cut the funky strummin’, start the slow smooth moves]

……………………..C……………………………………………

And under the lights when everything goes

……………….Fm or Fm7………………………………..

Nowhere to hide when I’m getting you close

………………Bb……………………………………………

When we move, well, you already know

………….F…………………………………………………………

So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine

[cue the funky strummin’]

C……………………………………………………..Am7

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

…………..G……………………………………………..

Feel that good, good, creeping up on you

………..F…………………………………….

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

C…………………………………………………..

All those things I shouldn’t do

………….Am7………………………………

But you dance, dance, dance

And ain’t nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

So just dance, dance, dance

…………F………………………………………

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

[same chords here on out!]

Ooh, it’s something magical

It’s in the air, it’s in my blood, it’s rushing on

Don’t need no reason, don’t need control

I fly so high, no ceiling, when I’m in my zone

Cause I got that sunshine in my pocket

Got that good soul in my feet

I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh

I can’t take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally

Room on lock the way we rock it, so don’t stop

And under the lights when everything goes

Nowhere to hide when I’m getting you close

When we move, well, you already know

So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

Feel that good, good, creeping up on you

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

All those things I shouldn’t do

But you dance, dance, dance

And ain’t nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

I can’t stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance

I can’t stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance

I can’t stop the feeling

So just dance, dance, dance

I can’t stop the feeling

So keep dancing, come on

[Bridge:]

[cue the funky bass! ]

C……………………..Am7

I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the

G………………………F……………………..

I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the

I can’t stop the feeling

[Chorus:]

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

(I can’t stop the feeling)

Feel that good, good, creeping up on you

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

(I can’t stop the feeling)

All those things I should do to you

But you dance, dance, dance

(I can’t stop the feeling)

And ain’t nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing
