A Little Abba

I can honestly say that there are few times I have played any Abba on my guitar. It's not that I dislike the group or their songs. I just tend to typically play other stuff. But either way, I tool around sometimes with songs that are 'outside my norm,' and often record my "toodling." I only played a short snippet of this one from Abba, S.O.S. and decided to upload it and share it just for fun. It is short and sweet—hope you enjoy it. Sorry, I had nothing to post this morning and after all it has been a while since I shared any music stuff. Onward and upward.

@DaddyEvil Is it his cat and what is it doing in there? The cat is too cute to be dinner.That is either one hungry or curious cat from the looks of it. I think it smell the milk right next to it which makes it.

@sica98 Hmm... have you not seen the "foods" that Jim cooks? Adult cats aren't supposed to be given milk. They are "lactose intolerant" and milk can give them digestive issues.

I wouldn't let my cat in the fridge. I'm not much of an Abba fan.

I listened and wanted to hear the rest of it. Seemed like a very emotional rendition to me.

Maybe one of these days I will sit down and do the whole song. Might be fun. Even make it a full on cover with bass and drums. I'd enjoy that actually. Haven't done a full on cover in a while, and even the last song I did was just an instrumental with no lyrics...just tooling around.

“Mamma Mia, there’s a cat in here, my my, what can I do with it?” That’s an excellent rendition. It gives is a new meaning, making it sound sadder.

I am glad you noticed it. I slowed it down quite a bit and tried to make it somber. I usually take many liberties with most of my 'renditions.' I am not saying any of it is any good. But I prefer not to simply emulate—that's for cover bands. I just do it for fun. True about the cat. I don't know what his fascination is, but he always wants in there. lol

Lots of great bands from yesteryear. Not too many great ones today, and it has been a while since we have had one.

Thank you for the link, and I did enjoy it. Is your cat looking for his own dinner? One of my kittens tried to hop into my fridge,

I actually do like a lot of Abba's stuff, but not nearly as much as my wife does.

Did he open the door and climb in ? Nice music.

No. lol. But I would not put it past him to try. He jumped in when I went in there to get something. Thanks, glad the "music" didn't cause any bleeding ears.

@porwest I listened to it and it was very good. Thank you for sharing. By the way Abba in Hebrew is father. Which cat is in the icture?

Looks like the jigs up on that cat's hiding place! The kitty's expression says it all. Very funny Not my genre of music but I like the stripped-down acoustic version. Nice interpretation and your vocals did not need a "distress call" after all

I quite like ABBA. S.O.S. is one of my favorite ABBA songs. You sang it beautifully.

Thank you. I'd call myself a "closet" Abba fan, and I do have to be sort of in the mood for their music. But it is good stuff.
