I’m working up a “Cowboy Swing” version of “Don’t Fence Me In”.
First off I want to say how remarkably easy it was to assemble the song so far.
I’ve never done a song with so many subdivided measures and interesting chords and it was a piece of cake. Strum Machine is a powerful tool.
- Is a Em7(flatted 5th) possible? Or am I asking too much?
- What strum settings would you recommend for Cowboy Swing?
Just playing the melody along with these chords sound awesome btw.
Great to hear!
Not yet, but I’ll add it eventually.
I would definitely recommend using the beta version if you’re not already, where you can select the “strum, stop , strum, stop” dampened strumming pattern, which feels the most “cowboy swing” to me.
Feel free to post a link when you’re done with your chart in case anyone else would be interested in playing with it!
It doesn’t suffer much from the missing flat.
I will post it when it’s done.
Oh, hang on… m7b5 is a half-diminished chord, and yes Strum Machine can play this! Look for the slashed “o” in the Chords menu, or use the zero key. Sorry, I should have recognized that at first, it’s just not a chord I use much myself!
Ha! Just tried it and it’s fits the melody perfectly!
I Have new respect for Cole Porter after attempting this song.
Thank you so much.
