OK, I'm working on a couple of real simple versions of songs to serenade my wife with tomorrow:

Love Is All Around (Troggs) –

D, Em, G, A7 on the verses;
G, Em, G, D, G, Em, A on the chorus,
done bass-strum style.

Love Song (The Cure) –

Am, G, F(easy 3 note version), E;
F, G, Am, C on the chorus
done all downstrokes lightly brushed.

The first on I knew pretty well from my lesson book, the second I was able to get a pretty decent version down in under an hour. All I need is one more I can learn in a short time to complete the hat trick(pardon the Canadianism)!

This may sound very inhuman but i do not believe in valentine day etc and i find all the guys and girls simply wasting their time and money over it.

Ok to go with the love songs...

1.Nothing's gonna change my love for you - Glenn Medeiros

2.Annie's Song - John Denver

And many many others.

Rahul

Happy V-day to all you lovers !,

You may not believe in it but I can attest to the fact that whether you do or not IT does Exist, and for many of us who have someone special in our lives it is nice to have a special day to acknowledge and reafirm your feelings for that person.

You of all people, with your love of John Denver's Rank sentimentality I would have assumed to be one of Valentines day's biggest fans.

No worries, Rahul. My wife and I don't celebrate it, either. We both agree that it's much more important showing each other every day, not just a special day out of the year.

Plus, it's saves us some cash on flowers, cards, etc, although we do enjoy those little Reces hearts. Any holiday is reason enough for the Reces peanut butter candies :D

Love Song by the Cure, is without a doubt, one of the greatest love songs ever.

Also i have been wondering that why is it that only guys have to strum the guitars and sing for their wives/girlfriends...

Why not the other way round ??

^I don't have a girlfriend simply because I can not find one to play guitar and sing songs to me...it's a hard life.

Thats pretty good Dave, I'll have to remember that. Hope it's not a time honoured truth, otherwise things aren't looking good for me.

Amen to that. Reces ruuuuuule.

If I treated my gf's with as much care as I do my guitar, mabey I would still have one *sigh*

I hate Valentines day...Call me the grinch that stole Valentines...and Reces...

BTW, I once heard a guy play The Unchained Melody on an electric guitar and I almost cried. It was just so awesome. Learn that one for your significant other (make sure to put alot of emotion/spirit/soul into it) and they WILL enjoy!

At this time I would like to tell you that NO MATTER WHAT...IT IS WITH GOD. HE IS GRACIOUS AND MERCIFUL. HIS WAY IS IN LOVE, THROUGH WHICH WE ALL ARE. IT IS TRULY -- A LOVE SUPREME --. John Coltrane
