I was trying to play For The Driver and being so lazy and having the habit of relying on published chords, I, er...looked up your cover of that song and when I listened to your version I told myself no way am I gonna do that little whatdoyoucallit run with that picking the way you do. I am impatient. I see a song and I wanna play it NOW. haha. There are so many songs I wanna play! Not just RS's. But sometimes I don't have the mood. And when I have the mood I don't have the time and...quiet space to do it. haha! I am such a headache. :---OHe uses fairly straightforward forward chords most of the time I think Joo. Don’t let it put you off. If there’s a song of his you want to try but can’t figure out the chords I’ll be happy to help
I was thinking along exactly the same lines, it is such an unusual name and the "smith" would indicate that he comes from a family of experts in, er,well ...... Oh, but it's SCYTHES!!!! You learn something new every day!I have a mate Mick Blacksmith. He can trace his family back generations to a family of iron mongers (blacksmiths) in County Cork Ireland. I'm wondering what Ron's ancestors did?
edit...I was making a slightly rude joke but on googling a sexsmith is someone who makes scythes or similar bladed implements,
Here's an unseasonal seasons entry.
Day 3, part 2
One Man And His Uke - Just My Heart Talking (Ron Sexsmith)
i don't know this one. After 1 listen the melody stays strong in my head. great song!!! I can listen to you sing all day John! how do you do it? the strumming i mean. it looks so simple but sounds so great. oh and i love this painted uke of yours. sound and looks. (and where is everyone? Looks like RS songs might be a bit of a challenge? I find them hard to cover actually.) I l love this. RS's songs have a kind of magic for me, and you do them so SO beautifully. Thank you John!
I AM HAPPY TO HAVE SONGS THAT RON SEXSMITH HAS COVERED TOO! He has covered lots of people.
I know I did say I would like to see you all try to bring one of his songs, if you are gonna submit more than 1, but....BUT the thing is as I try to learn his songs myself, I find them not that easy to cover! (for me that is) We can leave that to One Man And His Uke..............(just joking, John! But I am looking forward to more of your RS covers, or any songs)
Time to rest and get ready for another new day tomorrow. See you!
