Classic Simple Songs

Alan Desmond

Recommended Posts

There's been minimal new posts in Forum lately, so thought I'd contribute.

I like Paul Simon, Bob Dylan & John Denver's music. (also like Blues) If anyone would like to play a simple old English folk song Scarborough Fair, I've attached  chord sheet from my song book+my own work sheet that gives slightly diff'nt chords & position play address that I like.  Of course you can play the melody from other A key notes (if you prefer. A lot of songs I do now I pick the first few notes that fit the lyrics (you'll see from wrk sht) end phrases in chords gives it body.    This song is a good example to put the chords on a looper and play melody over it. Anyone oldies who likes Paul Simon's stuff will remember they did it I'm 1970's.

For any others who like Blues you will see I posted a work sheet for a Bill Withers song I've done for myself.  Anyone who gives my arrangements a go please leave comments for any ideas embellishments you may come up with.  I'm always looking for new ideas. We're all learning as we go all the time, that's guitar.
