Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T's.

Incredibly simple finger picking and chord progression.

Spent the last couple of practises on Jupiter by Will McNicol.

Lovely tune, but not sure my fingers are enjoying the learning experience. Lots of ringing notes that my fat fingers love to mute, and chords where you pluck around the ringing strings.

I usually have several going to better distribute my frustration.
These days I'm usually relearning/refining old ones along with the occasional new ones(to me). Focussing more on hybrid picking than fingerstyle lately. Newer ones now: Acadian Driftwood by The Band, Friend of the Devil by The Dead, 3 Roses by America. Revived: Helplessly Hoping by Stills, John Barleycorn - Traffic version.

Paul Simon's "American Tune". I've always loved the tune, some interesting chord changes, and classic Paul Simon riffs. I'd like to learn the structure of the tune and then try to figure out what Darrel Scott is doing in his interpretation. It's an interesting take on the song.

Going back an reviewing a number of the solo flatpicking numbers that may have faded from my memory a bit.

Currently working on Roberto Dalla Vecchia's arrangement of Bully of the Town.

Fiddle tune of the week to explore is Soldier's Joy.

In the hopes that someday I’ll be able to play in front of people again, working on three new ones:
  • The Reach, Fogelberg
  • In the Shape of a Heart, Jackson Browne
  • Sun King to The End, The Beatles

Kicking off ”Lewis & Clark” today. Did not expect that one to be that hard in terms of getting the flow.

Working on

Waste - Phish

Layover - Michael Hedges

Renewal - Doug Smith

Trying to work on my string stopping with Layover, tricky stuff when youre trying to break the habbit of holding your pinky down for an anchor on the right hand.

Waste is just a song to learn some theory and improv stuff, the video Trey put up a few months ago of he and Page playing it made me really fall in love with this song.

Renewal is my newest project, I think trying to get the timing down in this one will be tricky, and switching between having the melody played in the bass to start then to the upper strings then to a chord based melody.. Makes it an interesting switch musically.
