Well – Monday eve was (I think) a record breaker – there were 45 of us strumming in the first session! and it sounded fantastic. I particularly love seeing new players strumming alongside those who have been coming for months (nearly years!). It is such a lovely atmosphere at The Woolpack on a Monday eve and always starts my week off with a bang.
Here is what we did…
and then we started looking at this new song… the chords are straightforward but the rhythm can be tricky, especially if you do not know the song too well. Johnny sneaks in a few bars of 2/4 time in amongst the 4/4 time – but listen to the demo and follow the music – you will notice a pattern when the 2/4 bars occur, which is more obvious if you listen to what the singing is doing. the tab sounded awesome too!
Ring of Fire Demo
Then we carried on with
Pretty Woman Demo
Then in the second hour we focussed on
Happy with vocals Demo
Happy without vocals Demo – this will help you get those chords sounding great. Remember to keep little finger in place!
It Must Be Love Demo
Remember to keep a track on the gigs page for up and coming dates for your diary – I’m really excited that we are already getting some great events booked in for spring and summer. It’s going to be a great year – and soon all this grey weather will be a distant memory!
See you Monday!
