Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up October 20th, 2017
It has been a couple very busy weeks here at TG Central. Nani and I were out visiting relatives for a long weekend in Hawaii, and the house is on its way to being solar powered, which means a couple times of no power. But in the meantime here at TG we managed a nice variety of new lessons.
Max brought us Michael Jackson’s Rock With You, Vanessa introduced us to Ruth B and Lost Boy, and I got to a very old tune, Affair On 8th Avenue by Gordon Lightfoot, a pretty new tune, One Horse Town by Blackberry Smoke, and a Fly On The Wall with Ed looking at Bob Dylan’s Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.
I am glad I finally got to the Gordon Lightfoot song as it got me reminiscing about many of his early songs I used to play and sing. It also got me back to listening to those early albums. I heartily recommend The Way I Feel, Did She Mention My Name, Back Here On Earth, and Sunday Concert, all of which predated his big first hit, If You Could Read My Mind.
Of course the great albums and songs continued and I would probably pick Summertime Dream as my favorite of what might be considered his middle period. Be sure to check some of them out when you can.
And before anybody asks for tab, the intro and outro today were just noodling, rambling improvs.
