The Future Of Music...The Ubernauts

Project #2 - "Money For Nothing/Sultans of Swing"

Start date: 06 Mar 2008

Release date: N/A (in progress)

After a lengthy hiatus due to work and family commitments, the Ubernauts reconvened via e-mail in March of 2008. The ensuing brainstorm session brought Dire Straits's "Money For Nothing" and "Sultans of Swing" to the top of the list as a medley of covers that would allow us to do more guitar improv for our sophomore project. Tempo for MFN is 134 BPM and the last two bars ramp up toward a tempo of 143 for SOS.
