Students for Staff Fair Labor Action Band

as a result of the weekend i spent at Highlander earlier this year, SFS has taken a decidedly more innovative approach to our actions this year. namely, we've created a Living Wage band that has met a few times, adapting popular songs with living wage-related lyrics.

my friend Will and i got together tonight and recorded really rough demos of 2 of our living wage songs, to the tunes of "Heart of Gold" (1) and the classic by Pete Seeger, "We Shall Overcome" (2)

i've uploaded them to the internets, if you'd like to download and laugh along:
1 - "Living Wage"
2 - "In Solidarity"
[both files are yousendit, click on link and download from there]

the "in solidarity" one is particularly ridiculous. it gets particularly more ridiculous around 3:30.

p.s. the sound quality is shitty. we recorded in my room, with my laptop mic, and i'm still a beginner at guitar.

yup. started teaching myself over the summer. i went in to the instrument store to buy a ukulele but they talked me into an upgrade. i've always wanted to play the guitar anyway...

i named it Rocky Dennis after the one who inspired me to get a uke in the first place.

been learning for maybe 4 months. teaching myself chords via the internet. i'd like to think i'm not half bad, considering the conditions in which i began...
