Hello everyone. It’s that time again. Time for strumming and chat over a pint at The Highway on Willerby Road. Remember it’s every two weeks.
It will be the regular mix of new and old songs. As we approach bonfire night and Halloween, we’ll throw in some appropriate songs.
There will also be news of a small gig we’ve been asked to do and some decisions to make.
I really enjoyed the last meeting we had and had a good time. Thank you everyone.
At the last meeting I chose old songs that people are familiar with, but haven’t tried to play. These were songs from 1920s – 1960s. It makes this post a rather long one, but enjoy!
I said I would post them for people to practise at home. Here they are:
Whispering Grass – YOUTUBE
I Don’t want to set the world on fire – YOUTUBE
La Vie en Rose (in English – mostly) YOUTUBE
(you basically play along three times with the instrumental start and end).
Stormy Weather – YOUTUBE
(really slows strum)
Pennies from Heaven – YOUTUBE
Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Judy) YOUTUBE
Ain’t Misbehavin YOUTUBE
Finally – I have two versions of California Dreaming – YOUTUBE
