Having realized that most of the songs I've learned (and love) are from the incredibly rich period of the late '60s and early '70s (Stones's "Love in Vain," Pink Floyd, early Bowie, etc) I tried to go in a couple new directions: 21st C (if only barely) and Italian:

"Lost Cause" by Beck

"Pink Bullets" by The Shins

"Andrea" and "Rimini" by Fabrizio de Andre (both released in '78)

Sometimes called "Italy's Dylan," de Andre is probably closer in spirit to Leonard Cohen--though he covered/translated/re-interpreted songs by both Dylan and Cohen.

Stocktime (Buck Dance)
Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor

These are based on the John Hurt versions, arranged (and taught on video) by Tom Feldmann. I highly recommend Tom's lessons to any new finger pickers with an interest in Travis style or country blues. He also teaches slide. Here is a link to a free lesson.

Now I'm working on a few of Stephen Wake's Lochs while trying to really learn classical right hand techniques.

Loch Awe,
Loch Katerine
Loch Maree.

I have a few others of his for steel string that I started that I have to finished, plus I'm always making something of my own up.

I can't remember.

I have happily been untethered to disciplined practice for a few years. I already did 50 years of that. I prefer trying new chords and melodies. Improv and composition over study. Today was 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. I did 3 hours today. One hour on the Alvarez baritone - which I am still in the exploration phase. And a couple hours of Goodall cutaway tunings and musings.

Recently I got a call from a keyboard friend that wants to do songs. It looks like I need to get out the music stand. Try some of the 440 songs that I annotated back when the internet came around. Copied and pasted in WORD 3.10. Correcting the chords over the precise syllable of the lyrics.

"The Man Who Sold the World," Nirvana Unplugged version.

"Dark is the Night, Cold is the Day." It's sounding like a car wreck.

Oh, and "Melissa," by Greg Allman. Easy tune to play and sing. A couple of lines of it are done by the ghost of a kid's dad, in the series "Ozark," on Amazon. Growly country voice.

Now don't laugh, but I would like to know how to do this on an acoustic. This guy plays Red Rocks in April. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...mb_logo&loop=0
