8th January 2014 – A New Year, New Venue and New Songs!

It was fantastic to have a good old sing and play together in our new surroundings! The New Highwood is a great venue – the room is a great space and the staff so friendly (and I think they liked our songs!!)

Last night we started off with a little sing for Phil Everly

Bye Bye Love (RUG)

We started to look at these new songs…

LA BAMBA 2014 L+C – singing en espanol!

LA BAMBA tab – play either part A or part B!

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME tab

– WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW? Demo MP3

SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW

Have a listen to the Keane version of the song here to get a sense of the dynamics we could introduce to our playing…

then we finished off with a quick look at

BLUE MOON L+C

BLUE MOON TAB

We will continue to work on these songs next week so keep practising those chord changes you may have found difficult. Remember to start slow and simple; 4 down strums on each chord until you feel more confident and let your 1st finger get in position first. This will help you develop your muscle memory.

I will record more demos as soon as I can.

Keep on Strumming!
