I’ve always enjoyed mashing up genres and one of the earliest examples of this are my bluegrass cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana and the mash-up of Weezer’s Say It Ain’t So and TLC’s No Scrubs.
I found long ago that both Nirvana (and oddly enough Culture Club’s Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me) translate well to a bluegrass style. Someone requested I try to put together the rest of the Weezer/TLC mash-up and told them I would do that and throw in some bluegrass Nirvana for free. I’m quite rusty on the guitar and my singing voice is out of practice as well, but practice makes better, right?
I guess you could say I’m taking requests? Anyway, I’m taking random comments from people who follow me on social media and using that as an excuse to either make or upload things I made. Was fooling around last night and mentioned how I used to mashup the TLC song No Scrubs and Weezer’s Say It Ain’t So. Recorded the chorus and someone requested it. Not sure if they were just kidding or not, but all I needed was an excuse to figure out how to put the two songs together.
