Herringbone

December 1, 2008

I created a mission for myself while I relaxed at home in Los Gatos for Thanksgiving. The mission was to teach myself the piano notes to Department of Eagles’ “Herringbone”.

After 1 hour, I had it set and ready. I wish I could write like Daniel Rossen does. Playing that song, and singing it later on record was a treat, and it just felt completely together. I commend this song… Maybe I’ll upload it here. Maybe not. Just listen to the original, it’s not too different, other than being a lot better than my attempt.

“Oh boy. When you’re gone, you are gone…”

“One after the other, after the other… Just like herringbone.”

    you know…i totally just did it note-for-note by ear. i’m not even sure now if it is correct, but it sounds close enough ; ). i’d say just play the song a lot and sit at the keys finding the tones. i think i’m playing it in g and d a lot. basic threes. it’ll come to you. don’t worry. thanks for reading.
