52 Songs

The songs have really fallen behind in a big way. Other things have just been more inportant of late. BUT – the songs are back on my list this week and this is a special! A while ago a friend… Continue reading →

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with other things so song-learning has been top of my agenda lately, but there has been some progress. I struggled with “Mr Jones“, not with the words, as you might have expected, but with the… Continue reading →

I have a bit of a thing about songs with complicated words. I enjoy the challenge of learning them, and I’m a bit of a show off at heart (have you noticed?) so I’d rather learn something that makes people… Continue reading →

Last week was a bit of a write off week, but I’ve just about learned the chords to “Angels” including the odd F#m. I’ve also done a bit of rehearsing Song 1 to bed it into my brain a bit…. Continue reading →
