My jam with my bass playing friend left me with almost an assignment. Three new ones, for me that is, to figure out. I got a good ways into two of them this weekend. I'm about to try out the third.

Head East - Never Been Any Reason
Grand Funk - I'm Your Captain
Led Zep - Whole Lot of love

I had a bit of a choice when it came to the Led Zep song. I think it was this one, "Living Loving Maid" and "The Ocean". I think I chose Whole lot of Love the other night after looking through my song books. It was least like anything I play, so I figured it would be a good elarning experience. We'll see.

John Prine "Souvenirs" -- featured in the newest Acoustic Guitar magazine. The fingerpicking patterns are taking me where I've never gone before.

Steve Earle "Galway Girl" -- saw him perform a month ago. Trying to learn a harmonica solo for it too.

Todd Snider "Horseshoe Lake" -- Had to transpose down 3 half steps. My voice couldn't hit the high parts.

I am learning what is hip by Tower of power - from "Learn funk guitar with tower of powers Jeff Tamelier", Jeff should have probably checked what they wrote down in the tab book though because there is stuff missing - I can hear stuff he is playing that isn't written down. Oh well, at least I can use my ears to help me, some people can't but still the reason you buy a tab book is so you don' have to do that job! :lol: Why am I doing your job Mr Tab book?

together we stand, divided we fall..........

I'm still working on my Led Zep trilogy. "Whole Lot of Love", "Gallows Pole" and "Good Times, Bad Times". Actually, it's a mini set with "The Ocean" being in there somehow. It's opening up a whole new world of riff-rock and power chords combo that's quite challenging for me.

The exposure is starting to pay off a bit. A special request from me Mum has me learning Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman" now. I don't think that it's a song that can be strummed though all the way. One of those riffs that repeats itself all over the place and is signature for the song.

Have been looking very longingly at Whole Lotta Love myself, Roy! Seems like an awesome song to play, been tempted since Santana's cover was stuck in my head.

Been very busy the last few weeks/months, but starting again. Ice Cream Man by Van Halen's on the menu, and it's so very addicting to play that I'm already starting to fear for the solo, which will be coming up next week with my teacher: ouch.

Pretty women eh Roy, the other guitar player broke that out a couple weeks ago and we started jamming to it. Not my cup of tea but it has a decent groove and I can see it going over pretty good with an older crowd.

Kind of like Mustang Sally which has to be one of my all time most hated songs yet it's one song that everytime I have heard it played in a bar people get up and start dancing, so I had to learn it the other day.

Have to decide if we are going to do the new RHCP song Raindance Maggie with the band. The bass really drives the song the guitar is pretty minimal.

I'm finishing up Kyrptonite now and am going to start Plush by STP when I'm done.

Ok new song thi week is Good - Better than Ezra, didn't know the name until I heard the song then I recognized it. Another pretty easy song but one the singer wants to do.

Have to push Plush to the background for awhile.
