More Music from Astyages

Me playing at Paula's Easter Party 2010

Once again I’m afraid I must apologize for such a long hiatus between posts; I’ll try to post the next episode of Virgil’s Aeneid within the next few days; in the meantime I’d like to share a little of what I’ve been doing… which is, of course, learnin’ to play them blues!

The last couple of lessons have been very tricky, but I think I finally managed to get these little numbers down: Hideaway Blues, and Mary’s Little Lamb.

Oh, and I’ve also thrown in some more blues I learned since my last post, and a song by Arlo Guthrie too, ‘City of New Orleans’, which I learned for Wayne’s ‘Learn a Song Challenge’ over at the ‘Guitar Blues Unleashed’ forum; oh, and my version of an old ‘Creedence Clearwater Revival’ number, ‘Who’ll Stop the Rain?’…

And, just for fun, I thought I’d add one of my favorite comedy songs from Benny Hill, just for good measure!

(I’m still learning how to use the recording and sound-editing programme, ‘Audacity’ so please forgive the quality of the recordings: some of the earlier recordings are still a bit on the ‘tinny’ side; later recordings are somewhat improved however!)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy them.
