Greetings My Guitar Playing Friends and Neighbors!
I know I say this a lot but this really is one of my favorite songs to sing and play with other people. A Social Music classic if there ever was one! In this lesson we’ll return to the key of C and examine how we might change the flavor of the song by playing a C7 chord as the root. We’ll look at some bass string runs that should make anyone dance. This is a flexible tune and a great one for exploring the unlimited possibilities at our feet for just about any song we get our hands on. This is also the first song I sang a harmony on back when I first started playing it with friends. That was a dream come true for me and the dream is still unfolding. If you’ve never tried harmony singing before, try some now and let me know how you do with it!!! Until next time…..
