Totally Guitars Lessons Weekly Wrap Up Mar 9th, 2012
March 9, 2012
This week we added some songs that have been on our ‘Recommend A
Lesson’ list for a long time. We started with Eva Cassidy’s
arrangement of Kathy’s Song, a beautiful song written by Paul Simon
that was on Simon& Garfunkel’s second album, Sounds Of Silence.
We continued with one of my favorites, Laughing by The Guess Who. This
is another example of a great collaboration between Randy Bachman and
Burton Cummings. At the end of the week we released Peter Gabrel’s
Solsbury Hill. This has been a favorite for guitar players since it
came out in the late 70s, even though thick instrumentation, heavy on
keyboards, really pushes the guitar licks into the background. This is
a challenging instrumental piece.
Joining our ‘Fly On The Wall’ series this week were a couple of non-
Target songs that really have enough info in them to teach you the
song if you are interested. They were Bob Dylan’s Desolation Row and
another oldie by Lobo, Me And You And A Dog Named Boo. After the two
Lobo lesson with Fred I hope everybody who wants to play it can figure
it out. If not, try moving it up the recommended list.
We also had a couple Student Reviews. We had an upload from Matt
playing Embryonic Journey and another from Buddy doing Hallelujah.
These were very good renditions and there were a few suggestions to
help advance them a little more.
Many of our members prefer to get their lessons in packs of songs by a
particular artist. This week we put together a 10-pack of songs by
Damien Rice. Of course, Target members already have this but if you
are on the fence about Target and are a Rice fan, be sure to consider
adding this set of tunes to your collection.
Next week- we might explore some piano based songs (at least one).
Stay Tuned & In Touch,
