How do you make a small fortune playing guitar? Start with a large fortune!
 
Let's hear your songs about MONEY & RICHES. Any genre, any artist, and of course original songs are welcome. For example:
 
Money - Pink Floyd (obviously)
Price Tag - Jessie J
Handbags and Gladrags - Rod Stewart
Money, Money, Money - Abba
If I Were a Rich Man - Topol
Diamonds Are Forever - Shirley Bassey
Money For Nothing - Dire Straits
If You've Got the Money Honey I've Got the Time - Lefty Frizzel
 
Thanks to Ian (isdavies) for the topic.
 
-----------------<SUBMISSIONS>------------------
 
1. prz - Summertime

 

2. gotto - Dead Presidents

 

3. plfrancis - Money Talks
 

4. FloydFanatic - Money

 

5. isdavies - House of the Rising Sun

 

6. BenBob - Marie Laveau

 

 
-------------------< RULES >-------------------------
SUBMITTING: To complete the challenge, record an eligible song and reply to this thread with your your direct-linked or embedded track (Soundcloud's great) before the end of the month.
 
GUITAR REQUIREMENT: You must play at least one real guitar track heard in the mix.
 
GEAR: All content must be recorded with your home studio equipment. Sequence your own samples if you want, but no backing tracks, BIAB or loops you didn't create. The exception is drums... anything goes for your drums and percussion.
 
TIME: A recording made at any time before the entry deadline counts, but do not enter a recording in more than one challenge.
 
ONE ENTRY per person or collaboration. But, I doubt anybody will complain if you want to share another on-theme track too.
 
NEXT THEME: The person to choose next month's theme will be chosen randomly from those who complete this challenge. Entrants are numbered and the winner is selected by modulus of the first Tennessee Cash 3 drawing of the next month. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Have fun, try something new, and give us something to listen to!

Yes, thanks to Ian who won the drawing and came up with a great topic right away.

 

BTW, I tried to clarify the rules a little - anything goes for drums. Seriously, who wants a drummer in their house?

Hey, FloydFanatic, is that Pink Floyd version of Money a new cover for the song Money (That's What I Want) covered by the Beatles and Kingsmen (among others)? (I think it was originally written by Barry Gordon of Mowtown fame.) I'm not familiar enough with Pink Floyd's songs to know but I'm guessing it isn't.

 

Hey, this would include Camptown Races wouldn't it? ("I'll bet my money on the bob-tailed nag somebody bet on the bay.")

 

Need some other ideas?

I fully expect to win & the prize to be adequate to the title of the challenge, please B)

 

Drums & Piano is BiaB (read the rules too late,   :sadwarrior:  ) , comping & melody is mine.  I needed all the help I could get. I also take 10% less prize money for that if necessary. Should be still plenty B)

Well played Tony, and recording quality is better this time too.

 

The default for using BIAB though is that YOU have to provide the prize money  :biggrin:

Nice job Prz.  Keep on sharing your stuff. Should the U.S. default on its loan obligations, many of us will likely be tight as well.  GAS will consist of a couple new guitar picks  and a fresh set of strings every third month. ( I promise, no more political rhetoric!)

Since this is getting nasty I formally _WITHDRAW_ my entrance.  Nah, that's a first here B)

 

See whom you give this non-existing price to.

 

And Cap, you should be predestined to post an entrance here, with your job & the ethics that comes with it B)  

 

Here's a possible kick-start on the lyrics:   "I only want their best which is naturally their money ... "  :devil: :devil: :devil:

 

And no, it's not the Swiss national Anthem, it's just the Banker's Guild motto B)

 

Having said all that, Cap, if you could send this promised blanko check for me not playing you're alluring to,

I will send you affidavit that all my guitars have been destroyed. I'm not above that. Pay up, Buddy  :evil:

 

All in jest, naturally but a man gotta stand his ground  :greenmatter:

If only we could print money out of thin air, eh?  Or even issue bonds and then buy the bonds with our own printed money.  But alas no one could ever pull that scheme off...  :)

 

Now back to our regularly scheduled contest...

Aussie, we're just kids (eeh, guys, as in tad-bigger kids with more expensive toys) and it's just sandbox banter.

 

And now, Cap, you heard the lady speak, deliver, buddy :evilwarrior: :evilwarrior:

 

Or do you have tendinitis from cutting all those checks from theirs accounts to yours B)
