Totally Guitars Lessons Weekly Wrap Up Dec. 24th, 2011
The big news this week was the launch of another sister site- TotallyKeyboards. We are very fortunate to have a great keyboard teacher, Dave Coldren and are excited about welcoming him into the family. Be sure to check it out when you can.
On the new release side we added a few Christmas songs with instrumental arrangements of Let It Snow, I Wonder As I Wander, and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, along with a couple of personal favorites, Lonely People by America and Clifton In The Rain by Al Stewart. Al’s song is from his first album, released in 1967, and one he still performs regularly. This was a request from our Recommend A Lesson section that jumped out at me and I had to act on it. Keep ’em coming.
Another song that has made the rounds here at TG is Mad World, originally done by Tears For Fears but later covered with a completely different feel by Gary Jules. This has inspired many people to tackle an arrangement by Ulli Bogershausen and my student Larry came in with it recently and we decided to make a Fly On The Wall with his lesson. We also added a Fly with Fred looking at Please Come Home For Christmas.
Best Wishes to all our TG Family this Holiday Season, particularly to my friend and partner Matt, and everybody behind the scenes who work so hard to keep our sites running on as many cylinders as possible.
Stay Tuned & In Touch,
