arranging fun!

I had this idea that I thought would be pretty fun. The idea is to take the basic "numa numa" riff and arrange it up by adding guitars/other instruments, complicating/complimenting the harmony/melody/rhythm, or whatever, just arrange it and have fun with it. The whole song is the basic F C G Am chord pattern I indicated in the gp5 file, so do any part of the song you feel like. Once you've made a cool arrangement, post it here for everyone to see!

If you've never heard numa numa before for some insane reason, here's a link:

It's really weird, and insanely catchy...

Anyway, to get started, my guitar pro file is the basic intro arranged for solo guitar (with a surprisingly difficult picking pattern) in measures 1-5, then an unplayable chorus in measures 6-14, but I thought I'd at least write it out to get things started. Ok...go!

[edit] Oh yeah, one more thing, if you want to participate and see my tab but don't have guitar pro, let me know and I'll write it out in some other format.

I don't think I can do too much to make it sound better, but it's definitely a cool one to be able to play :P.
Hell of a party trick.

Heh, well here it is. Not exactly a work of art, but kind of what I had in mind. The ending sounds all weird and proggy, but I was too lazy to un-progify it.

Yeah, cuz I think gp5 is the newest version of guitar pro?
Hey Stamen, why don't you export the file as a note pad or something and then upload it here. I think tons more people would be able to see it. or power tab?
Don't know if ya can. I don't have guitar pro yet - Just powertab.
Cuz I would love to play this song! :lol:

Latest one is GuitarPro 5.2. I had a stolen/pirated GuitarPro for a while that was 5.1 (I think?) but I did end up buying it to get the update.

There's more RSE banks/tweaks, including 'Amp Effects' to put the guitars through. I don't know what else has changed, but that's the biggest thing I noticed.

On the actual topic of the thread- sorry but I hate that song :?
(EDIT: The original. Nothing against your fun arrangement)
