Music from last Monday night session.

As promised – here are the songs from the last session (and maybe more).

Bonnie Tyler – It’s a Heartache

Lou Reed – Walk on the Wild Side

Peter Sarstedt – Where do you go to my Lovely

Jame Taylor – Sweet Baby James

R.E.M. – Losing my Religion

Dusty  Springfield – I Only Want to be With You

The Ink Spots – Whispering Grass 

and finally

Van Morrison – Brown Eyed Girl. 

I want to concentrate on Brown Eyed Girl. It’s a lovely tune with a simple riff that is very effective (as all great riffs are).

Here’s Van Morrison : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfmkgQRmmeE

And here’s a great way to learn it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9ae67wY8pc

(notice when he riffs, he just uses two fingers. I start with index and middle finger,
then move to index and ring finger for the notes that are two fret apart and
back to index and middle for notes that are one fret apart).

For example:

It’s just a suggestion.

IN FACT: From this video you will find lots of Ukulele Underground – they are superb and great fun to play along with.

It’s a excellent way to practise your playing at home on your own.
