The full moon is upon us, so I thought I'd post a song I wrote for her. You WILL let me know if this starts to get too annoying, won't you?! I wrote this song about 3 years ago. I was listening to a lot of Fado at the time (probably the best way of explaining is that it's the Portuguese version of the Blues...if Billy Holiday had been Portuguese, she would have sung Fado!) I gave up trying to work out the words from CDs and decided to try and write something in English with the same feel to it (doesn't quite work, but oh well). Also I wanted a song that sounded like it was supposed to be sung without any accompaniment. And 'La Luna' was the result, a song about the sad, lonely lady moon.
So of course, one of the things I've been itching to do since I started learning guitar is work out an accompaniment for it. Entirely illogical, isn't it?! So had a fiddle around last night and worked out some chords, and discovered by accident a lovely 'flamencoey' sounding one, and put it together...roughly!
So I recorded both versions this morning...attempting (unsuccessfully) to avoid planes going over. Let me know which you like better!
And click here, and here, for some fantastic REAL Fado!
