Music R Us

For most of the last couple years, I've been working on my playing when I pick up the guitar -- mostly finger-picking kinda stuff. I'm not good at it, but I am better.

So I've been adding in some vocals to go with the instrumentals from time to time, and if I had to work up a set-list and fill an hour, I have enough stuff I can passably play. Here's what I've been singing to the walls and the dogs the last couple weeks. Pretty much I can do all these, save for "Year of the Cat," which I just started learning today. A week or so, I should have that one down. Too bad I don't have the keyboards, bass, and sax to go with the guitar ...
