Lesson notes

Dan Hicks 3rd album, Striking It Rich really set the stage for where their career, and niche was heading. The catchy, quirky songs brought smiles to everybody's faces and got toes tapping to the swing rhythms. Dan wrote most of their songs but they reached back about 40 years to this lighthearted tune by Johnny Mercer. It was originally recorded by Bing Crosby, then followed by dozens of artists. Dan's take on it featured Maryann Price on vocals.

This lesson takes a basic strumming approach to the progression in the key of D. It also includes a short introduction that incorporates the melody into the strumming.
