    Bill Callahan is one of my favourite songwriters
    but he's such a unique writer, singer and player -
    I've always been too scared to try and record anything by him
    until now. Thanks for hosting the week, Steve.

    I was thinking of doing "Ode to Billy Joe" for the double whammy effect, Rob ... and then decided it was too difficult!

    I played it through this morning and basically it is D7 G7 C7 chords.
    I think it is a song for the ladies of the season to sing since it sits better
    with the words of the song.

    I've got the evening to myself tonight. I'd love to get my third vid done and then catch up on my Netflix shows but I've got a list of chords a mile long too!

    Phew. 24 hours in and I reckon we have had 27 entries from 18 Seasonistas. Some Bills & Bobs I had never heard of (but should have done) and some I had forgotten about (and shouldn't have). This is going so well.
    So far I have kept up, but things get trickier as the week goes on - I have to fit in a Tom Russell concert, a performance with a uke group at an anti-fracking benefit evening, and a night away in a pub which brews its own beer. Don't expect too many intelligible comments that night.
