Can you remember?
For me, it had to have been either "Red River Valley" or "My Darling Clementine" out of this book of simple folk songs with words and chord diagrams ... circa 1962-1963.
Back then, who would have ever guessed that eventually Neil Young and "Crazy Horse" would make those songs sound cool??
Louise, by Bonnie Raitt and then "Helpless" by Neil Young, which was pretty easy :)
BTW Jud, thanks so much for sending the bridge pin, so very nice of you!!
Glad to do it. After I looked at it, I was afraid that it would be darker than your other 5. Either it aged, or had an aging toner applied to it at some point.
Is it sold? If not, any potential buyers yet??
Oh, that just makes it cooler! Nope , I still have it, just posted it on my facebook and some guy in Switzerland said he wishes he could come over and try it, Ha!
it might have been, "Go Tell Aunt Rhody" from an old Pete Seeger Folksong book...early mid 60's
The first songs I learned to play were those that Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, and The Kingston Trio recorded. I can not tell you the first though. My first "finger picked" song was Joan Baez's rendition of "Polly Von." I am still stuck in the "Folk Song Era" even wtih any other 'twist' I might have picked up along the way. Stories in Song......Keep on Picking, Time is Ticking."
First song I learned was Pink Floyd "Pigs on the wing"
"The River" - Bruce Springsteen :-)
Scarborough Fair from a Simon and Garfunkel songbook which I still have.
Just looked at my "Paul Simon Complete" book...found a receipt from 2.26.85(didn't know it was still there in the front page). Thanx for the memory and the smile it brought
Glycerin by Bush... I started out playing strictly electric.
....ummm....I THINK...it was...Needle And The Damage Done....(Neil Young). Unless....you count the intro to Smoke On The Water!...LOL!
