    A couple of tough ones there, I'll admit. Kate is difficult to sing, too. However. A few more choices on the way for tomorrow and you will have access to some Country, some College Pop, Some early 60s kids and something fairly dark.

    Hows this for another choice. Just play me your favorite song you've worked out in the last couple of months?
    It's the songs, isn't it?

    You've seen this but for new folks this is the explanation of the Thornton Rule:
    Thank you, Mr. Thorton.

    Hahahahahaha! Just have fun and play, and play, and play. Ukulele players behaving badly- my favorite thing Mr. Thornton, and you have plastered your rule all over this. Off to figure out how to chicken fry Kate Bush mate- see ya tomorrow.

    Don't mind if I Do!

    My Sunday mornings follow a pretty set routine. Son o' mine wakes up, I wake up, check the theme, play a song as I am.

    The above thing has let me play a song I worked on a couple months ago for an open Mic. Simple Minds are mine and my dad's favourite band. He's been going to see them since the late 70s, and first took me along about 10 years ago. This June we saw them play an acoustic set and Jim Kerr remains the best front man I've ever seen. Sings to each member of the audience individually every song.

    Sadly the internet is lacking in tabs for their songs beyond the two or three massive hits, so here's a reworking of Someone, Somewhere in Summertime. Good to see the boy paying attention at the start.


    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Aaaaand here's some Kate Bush.

    My philosophy when playing music is "you're never gonna sound like the original, so don't bother trying"

    That mantra has never been more necessary.
