My praise band leader is going through a Chris Tomlin obsession, so we're working on:
Indescribable - Chris Tomlin
Enough - CT
Holy is the Lord - CT

And for myself:
Here is Our King - David Crowder Band
My Savior My God - Aaron Schust
and a bunch of Bootsy Collins bass riffs!

I'll have to check out that Modern Worship Fakebook. For Geoo and Steeder: Are the transcriptions based on piano music? I just got the sheetmusic book for the new Best of Passion Band collection, and it's terrible - first the songs are transcribed for piano, then transcribed to chord charts based on the piano music - but they are wrong in many cases! And the chord diagrams are useless. Even some of the lyrics are wrong! I'm really disappointed. I highly recommend the two-disc CD though. :)

Just learnt Money for Nothing - Dire Straits.

Nothing currently lined up. I'm working heavily on technique with my guitar teacher so my practice time is geared towards that at the moment. Plus practicing the songs I've already got under my belt.

On the list of things to do in the very near future:

Something by the Stereophonics (spoilt for choice).
Wish You Were Here (still haven't got round to doing David's lesson on this one )
The solo to Hotel California (learnt the rest of the song at the end of last year).
etc. etc.

8)

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.

"Mary had a Little Lamb", SRV. I'm at the third measure of the solo. Very fun song to play.

Also, I'm plugging away in my "Blues You Can Use" book.

Anything that plays in the walkman...literally.

And I am trying to compile a popular song list to sing with old school friends, when we meet.

That's what my mother sings when she tunes her ukelele!

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

For Slejhamer:

You get a couple of different things with the Worship Fakebook: a book that has all of the songs written out in leadsheet form with chords above the melody line and a CD with pdf "enhanced chord charts", the Nashville Numbering System, and an index that sorts the songs by name, key, etc.

I use the enhanced chord charts (one page for each song with guitar chords, suggested tempo, and other songs in the same key) and rarely use the book. On the cd each chord chart also has a link to an mp3 that samples how the verse, chorus and bridge are played (same person playing all of the examples for all of the songs I think). That has been extremely useful for learning strumming patterns.

What I'm doing now is trying to download the actual versions as performed by the artist onto my mp3 player just to listen and pick out new songs to learn that I might not have heard before. I have found a lot of very cool songs that I'd like to learn this way. Then, I just plug my mp3 player into my amp and strum/sing along.

I highly recommend it!
