Demo Video


Let's see, my birthday is 16th of May, 1974.

So in number format that would be:

  • 1, 6, 0, 5, 1, 9, 7, 4

Great. I will use the first four numbers for my verse

  • Verse = 1, 6, 0, 5

The second four numbers for my chorus.

    Chorus = 1, 9, 7, 4

So each number represents the fret that I will play.

I can do it just playing single notes or use power chords.

After jamming it for while I decided I liked the idea of it sounding punky. That made it easier to apply the quirky chord sequence. And I quite like it.

So what is your birthday?

How does it sound?

Can you make it sound cool?

What style of music would help you do that?

Use other number sets like phone numbers, house numbers and post codes.

Driving License numbers. It helps me to never forget it. My driving license number sounds like a solid 70's rock riff. Superb!
