Plinky: Starsky’s Stolen Candyfloss

Another Plinky video?

After a train ride of talking about Scott Pilgrim and ‘We Are Scientists’  me an Mr.Parker thought we’d make a lovely tune for our blogs, so the material was a result of 5 -10 rehearsal space minutes of combined ideas…

Ashley Field was our session player today (Thanks again!), he an George play far superiorly than me in the recording so atleast I can look back an see what I need to improve on I.e; My timing, tone etc

Big thanks to Alex Nash for the use of his Ibanez guitar

Plinky. – Captain Quirk

Yes!!! finally I got some gems to share, problem is there’s a million mistakes and you can’t really hear me but for your entertainment I present Plinky. So who are Plinky? well it’s a project where you make music that draws elements from musicals that we’ve all sessioned for as well as our own blends of creativity.

So… the plan!!! I kind of want a lot of people to know how to play the tracks of Plinky, I want to see what people do to augment and improvise over existing material, a bit like when people play over jazz and put their own personal flavour onto it.

Run down – Okay people I hope you enjoy the video, what’s that? you want to play it? oh geez well here you go:

Main Riff Chords – C# – 9 / G# – 7 / Amaj7 / Cmaj7

C# – 9/ G# – 7 / Amaj7 / F# – 9

C# – 9/ G# – 7 / Amaj7 / D – 9

C# – 9/ G# – 7/ Gmaj7 / Gmaj7

Jackson Five Riff – G# – 7/ C# – 7/ B octave

G# – 7/ C# – 7/ Gmaj7/ B octave

I believe in collaboration and augmentation, if you feel my version of this isn’t as good as one you can create then please share, I love hearing other musicians styles as long as it’s organic and unique, so when it comes to playing live I have a selection to choose from and so everyone and anyone could get up and play these catchy brain child’s of mine.

Have a nice weekend whatever it is you choose to do, if you did want to learn more or even session then please just ask.
