Alright I was wondering if anybody can help me with some songs to play for my neices/nephews and little cousins. Some disney songs or ones like them would be great.

I am addicted to the guitar, just like I am addicted to air and water.

Are you familiar with "The Rainbow Connection" made famous by Kermit the Frog from Sesame Street?
I have never posted music here, so hopefully the formatting will work so as to be usable.

Margaret

The Rainbow Connection by Paul Williams and Kenny Ascher

G Em Am D
Why are there so many songs about rainbows,

G Em C Am D7
And what's on the other side?

G Em Am D
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,

G Em C
And rainbows have nothing to hide.

Cmaj7
So we've been told, and some choose to believe it;

Dmaj7 or D
I know they're wrong; wait and see.

Am C D E
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection;

Am D7 G C G
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

verse 2
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it;
Look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us star-gazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection;
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

verse 3
Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm s'posed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection;
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

When my mind is free, you know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue, the guitar's comin' through to soothe me ~

Hi Margaret - if you copy the song out on notepad, or works, use Courier New font, size 9 0r 10, then when you click on new topic, on the line next to message body, you'll see some icons - B, italic i, u underlined etc - click on "Code" paste your song & chords in from wherever you've typed it, then click on code again at the end of the song.....this should do the trick.

:D :D :D

Thank you, Vic! Think it is correct now. I'm printing out and saving your directions.

Margaret thanks for the song. Are there any more that anybody can help me with?

Cobra,

Please tell us a little more about what you are looking for:

What are the ages of your nieces/nephews? Toddlers, pre-schoolers, early elementary age, later elem., etc?

Do you want them to be songs the kids will be familiar enough to sing along with you, or will they more likely just listen? (For example, I saw Octopuses Garden on the Easy Songs Forum--kids wouldn't probably know that, but they would enjoy hearing it. Yellow Submarine is another like that)

Hey Cobra, I play "Wimoweh" (aka "The Lion Sleeps Tonight") for my girls and it always gets them dancing and singing. Nice little 3-chorder.

from http://www.houlston.freeserve.co.uk/wimoweh.htm

[ D ] Ah-weeeee- [ G ] eee- [ D ] eeeee- [ A ] eeeeee...

A- [ D ] wimoweh, a-wimoweh a- [ G ] wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A- [ D ] wimoweh, a-wimoweh a- [ A ] wimoweh
A- [ D ] wimoweh, a-wimoweh a- [ G ] wimoweh, a-wimoweh
A- [ D ] wimoweh, a-wimoweh a- [ A ] wimoweh

[ D ] In the jungle the [ G ] mighty jungle the [ D ] lion sleeps to [ A ] night.
[ D ] In the jungle the [ G ] quiet jungle the [ D ] lion sleeps to [ A ] night.

[ D ] Near the village the [ G ] peaceful village the [ D ] lion sleeps to [ A ] night.
[ D ] Near the village the [ G ] quiet village the [ D ] lion sleeps to [ A ] night.

[ D ] Hush my darling, don't [ G ] fear my darling, the [ D ] lion sleeps to [ A ] night.
[ D ] Hush my darling, don't [ G ] fear my darling, the [ D ] lion sleeps to [ A ] night.

(Note: Play the open G chord as 3-2-0-0-3-3; this ties in nicely with the key of D)

Guessing you never heard of him, but a lot of his songs are fun for kids and adults at the same time. Pretty easy to play, major chords, sing along choruses. A few:

Moon Man Newfie
Bud the Spud
Little Wawa
Zephyrs in the Maples
C-A-N-A-D-A
The Hockey Song
Ketchup Song

On Top Of Old Smokey, Old MacDonald, Skip To My Lou, etc

You can give this one a go
[Mary Poppins]

{Refrain}
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Um diddle iddle iddle, um diddle aye (4x)

/ C - - G7 / - - - C / - - - F / - C G7 C / - G7 / /

Because I was afraid to speak when I was just a lad
My father gave me nose a tweak and told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word that saved me achin' nose
The biggest word you ever 'eard and this is how it goes

Oh
{Refrain}

... / C G7 / / C# G#7 / C# G#7 /

He traveled all around the world and ev'rywhere he went
He'd use his word and all would say, "There goes a clever gent!"
When dukes and ma'arajas pass the time of day with me
I say me special word and then they ask me out to tea

/ C# - - G#7 / - - - C# / - - - F# / - C# G#7 C# /

Oh
{Refrain}

... / C# G#7 / / D A7 / D A7 /

So when the cat has got your tongue, there's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word and then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully or it could change your life
One night I said it to me girl and now me girl's my wife

/ D - - A7 / - - - D / - - - G / - D A7 D /

She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Good luck,

Rod. :wink:

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

Does anyone have the strumming pattern for this one?

Does anyone have the strumming pattern for this one?

well listening here ....

http://www.internoodle.com/KERMIT/Inspiration/KermitSongs.asp?Song=1

and then looking at the picture ...

I would say that Kermit was having a bit of trouble with the chords himself on this one.

It seems as though he is bending the top 3 strings out of the way whilst fretting a "1 note chord" on the bottom string , he also seems to be doing a strange "barre" hammer / pull off tapping movement with his middle / pinky AND ring fingers.

The bend in his pinky alone is quite remarkable and would surely have brought on Corpal Tunnel in most other players , his time spent in water probably helped keep his fingers / hands / weblike thingys supple.
His "hands" glided over the fretboard as though they were made of felt or velvet.
Whilst doing this he adopts a hybrid plucking / strumming Mark Knopfler "Dire Straits" style thingy with his other hand / foot / web thingy using his own famous design "plectrum" modeled from a very rare lily pad , fabled to have been dried out and "trotter crushed" by miss piggy , these are now very rare , indeed nearly as rare as the "Brian May" sixpence plectrum but I have one and will put it up on ebay for you if required .

Kermit had exceptional length in all his fingers as you can see in the picture , his pinky and thumb were as long as his ring finger and this enabled him to perform with a unique style , he could reach from one octave to the next without moving his hand position.
Indeed at times it seemed as though his hands were moving without him even having to think about what or where he needed to fret , almost as though someone were doing it for him , there was speculation that it may have been the spirit of Hendrix.

The rare condition that extended his fingers/ web thingys on his upper body that allowed him his unique musical ability unfortunately caused his feet to be extremely stunted and pointy in comparision , it was widely known that he was sadly unable to walk without human aid or sticks / strings.

One thing everyone agreed with is that the sound he was able to produce was unbeliveable considering the scarcity and economic movement of both hands / feet / web things.

You will notice as in the picture above , to enable Kermit to be able to play his banjo , the basta*ds trimmed the webs from between his finger thingys and he was never able to swim again , lets hope this does not become "the norm".

A TRUELY REMARKABLE AND MUCH UNDERATED GUITARIST THAT RARELY MAKES A PUBLIC APPEARANCE ON TV THESE DAYS

Maybe try some Hyrid plucking strumming thing for it .

Hope it helps

:lol: :D :shock:

Dont give a shite about punctuation or spelling , I have to do that all day at work.
Free times for rocking !!
