Title: Easy Like Sunday Morning
Artists: NYCGRIFF/Hector Maldonado/Rick Hall
Album: A Single For Motown

Hello Music-Loving Folks:

The other day we (my music buddies and me) were sitting around watching TV.  A commercial came on featuring the opening piano melody from a classic Lionel Richie/Commodores (Motown/1977) song, "Easy Like A Sunday Morning".  So, we all grabbed our instruments and decided to perform our rendition of this song.  Since there was no drummer at this session, we used the software, EZDrummer (Toontrack) to add the drums, and Magix Samplitude Pro X to lay down the tracks.

Actually, for all you budding pianists out there, the piano part is quite easy.  Check this out: Of course, you can always add your own spice to the song.

When I mention "we". I am referring to my life-long musician pals: Rick Hall (guitars), Hector Maldonado (bass), Griff (keyboard).

Hope you find our musical rendition of this piece, enjoyable.

Take it easy, good people'

Griff

I know nothing about music. Only listened .. Using technology also makes possible for me to be able to make music.

  I am also into photography amateur.

I'm not here for stars score but coment with advice for improvement of my music.


at my coment on music of others, I remain honest. this must be mutual .

I give my voice just as public and not as someone who knows something from music.

 I'm open to all criticism. I want to learn something

greeting

Lyrics:

"Easy"

Know it sounds funny
But I just can't stand the pain
Girl I'm leaving you tomorrow
Seems to me girl
You know I've done all I can
You see I begged, stole
And I borrowed

Ooh, that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like sunday morning

Why in the world
Would anyboddy put chains on me?
I've paid my dues to make it
Everbody wants me to be
What they want me to be
I'm not happy when I try to fake it!
No!

Ooh,that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like sunday morning

I wanna be high, so high
I wanna be free to know
The things I do are right
I wanna be free
Just me, babe!

That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like sunday morning
Because I'm easy
Easy like sunday morning
Because I'm easy
Easy like sunday morning

Molto bene Griff
Ho sentito un po' di confusione al punto 1:40 a 1:46
Il solista è un freestyle

Very good Griff
I feel a little 'of confusion at the point 1:40 to 1:46
The soloist is a freestyle

Hi, My friend

Mellow and yellow!  You have been on a yellow kick as of late with this, the smiley guys and the sunflower.I remember this song and have liked it ever since I first heard it.  I, myself would HAVE to have a metronome ticking at me or something because it's slow and I always speed up. But  you guys kept it nice  and steady.

Great job and I enjoyed every minute

BRANO INTERESSANTE E.... PIACEVOLE DA ASCOLTARE.

FORSE SE ARRICCHITO DA QUALCHE ELEMENTO IN PIU', SAREBBE ANCORA PIU' BELLO.

SALUTI A PRESTO.

Hoi Griff

woahhh .... I do love the song. Known by the interpretation of "Faith no more", which I find great.
With your version I miss something cool "guitar solo", but you have installed other very beautiful little things.

Fantastic song .... beautifully interpreted.

P. S. Sorry, at your last song did not work out something with my comment.

hello my music lover,
here I naturally think of mister Lionel Richie and his very beautiful version!
But you show once again what is possible ................... if you like you can and want to!

Very skilful and elegant variant you have created here!

You have my absolute respect for this plant!

like my friend again and again!

greeting to new york!
