Here's another of my Wikiloops adventures. I found this very inspired and well executed Deep Purple-ish song, and I hardly made the choice to join in; my lips automatically started to sing stuff on top of it.
I first got the chorus and verse parts; I like the chorus a lot and I would have liked to do it one or two times more, but you have to play with the structure you're given. So, for the second half of the song, I just thought "when I get there I'll do whatever". And accordingly to the title, I jammed my heart out in three takes.
And funny how that "whatever" turned out to reveal my influences so much. With one or two exceptions, while I was singing there wasn't a conscious intention of imitating my teachers, I was just "being myself", and to my amusement, later I found very clear tracks of this or that singer everywhere. So as a kind of a sonic "Where is Waldo", in this track you can find, some more obvious than others, assorted tips of the hat to:
Ian Gillan (of course)
Freddie Mercury (at least 3 times)
And others that I forget. I guess that's the way culture works; the roots end up showing in the fruits...
I have a guitar and I'm gonna use it
