Post Song Of The Month #2 Mad World
Ok Folks. The poll is over and the stick world has spoken. Mad World is the Song of the Month For February. Now Your mission should you choose to accept it is to come up with a killer version of Mad World. You can do any style you like or any way you like. The idea again is to compare ( and Steal) ideas and approaches from each other. Also for me this a chance to add content to my youtube channel and also to add to my list of tunes that I might perform some day at a solo recital. every tune you learn makes learning the next one that much easier. ( same chords , Same techniques etc)

Mad World is a fairly easy tune with only four chords that Im aware of. And Highly repetitive. The challenge for me will be keeping it interesting.

YOU have til the End of February to post a video ( or audio file) of your version. at which time we will pick the next song of the month.

FYI Poll recap

Mad World 4 votes
Careless Whisper 3 votes
Winner Takes All 2 votes
And I Love Her 2 vote.

Id like to suggest that any tunes that get a vote automatically get entered in the next months poll and a week before Ill send out a thread to ask for more submissions. I forgot to add one suggestion by Atraskler which Ill add to next months poll . Sorry about missing that one.

I look forward to other thoughts and opinions on this tune ( and Song of the month stuff) and ideas people might incorporate to make their versions come to life. Ill be scouring the Internet for cool and hip versions for ideas as well.

Remember Mad World by yourself due end Of February. (or anytime you want really The deadline is for me as I work best with a deadline)

Yes very cool indeed Boaz. And thats some kind of record , challenge thrown out , video posted a few hours later.
I'm pushing on with my Alto Version on the Ship. Its coming together a bit better now, slower tempo than Boaz, should have an Audio Only version ready soon. ( I hope ) :D

Nice work Scott.
Bruce. Bohemian was unofficially the first song of the month but I may not have been clear about it. I guess you can say launching hiccups.
Boaz I like the beat buddy. I might get on of those in the future.
Nice singing and playing on your version Olivier.

It’s cool seeing how everyone interprets the song. After hearing countless versions of people singing this song on line. These are all much better and fresher in my mind. Could be stick bias too. It’s great seeing how you all play your chords slightly different in different spots.

Looking forward to more. Thanks for posting everyone. Now to go and work on my version.
