Hello all you Pluckin’ Strummers! Again we gather to share our affinity for the little four string wonder.
Normally I choose a list of songs from one of the books we use but this meeting will be different. We are gonna shoot from the hip and use book one, the yellow one, and let you, our beloved members pick the songs. Get yourself a Post-It and jot down a must play song or two and we’ll fill the first half with a bunch of favorites. I’ll pick several just in case there’s moments of silence when prompted for a page number.
Which way will it go? Sad or happy? Romantic or Sappy? Mello or Rockin’? Jazzy or Country? So many choices! It’ll surely be a blast!
The second half will be filled with our arrangements. I’ll bing copies of some of our favorites along with a couple new ones. I just finished writing up a classic by Chicago, Colour My World. I even wrote up the flute solo. Get ready to get your pickin’ fingers ready!
I hope everyone took a little time to work on the Chris Stapleton song “Traveller” that I sent out in an email blast. That’ll be a fun song to play. I hope there will be a large turnout this Saturday. Thanks to all our members for your continued support.
