Re: Cajun Vocals

Hi Ehren
David Greely's books might be worth looking at, he has a certain structure technique to transcribing the lyrics.Check out his website.

I'm in the same boat as you but perhaps not quite as determined and I'm partial to zydeco.Tend to keep things simple and often go for songs with simple lyrics or less wordy creole versions of the songs, if I'm stuck I'll repeat the same verse twice.

When I play it's my own limey interpretation, but hopefully there is an essence of louisiana music as I have a passion for it, no way am I even going to attempt to be anything like the real deal. Enjoyment is the main thing at my level.

Good luck with finding a tutor.
Would Ganey Arsement be able to help? Think he offers skype lessons.

All the best
