Here’s a tentative (firm as jelly!) list of songs that Mark Grenier and I put together for the play-along hour on April 16 at 5pm. If you have ideas for better, easier, more fun play-along songs that connect to the earthy theme, lay them on me! Also, if it’s your dream to be the lead singer/uker on any of these songs, we’re oh-so happy/relieved to share the honor. (Or, if you had dreamed of one of these as your open mic number, and you’d rather we don’t do it as an all-play) Just let us know!
I’ll be posting chord charts as I get them made.
