Pop and Power Ballads
Been working up a pop/power ballad set. Got five so far I can play that are a little more complicated than 1-4-5, and which need a bit more vocal dexterity than a lot of the geezer rock and blues I like to play. Got some stretch singing the high end, especially in the last three. Plus "River" switches keys in the middle.
1. Love and Affection 2. Can't Get Used to Losing You 3. Year of the Cat 4. Let the River Run 5. Bridge Over Troubled Water
I'm a full-time writer, not the rock singer. Mostly science fiction and fantasy. Some mystery/technothriller stuff; some animated TV, couple movie scripts in turnaround or waiting to get there. I've been a student of silat with Maha Guru Stevan Plinck for twenty years. I play guitar a little, and am learning to play the 'ukulele. It's all good.
