i loved hearing everyone’s contributions and interpretations 🙂
i’m new to fingerpicking, so it’s not perfect – but here is my attempt at Here Comes The Sun:

Happy New Year to all…
I learnt “Here Comes The Sun” some while ago, so I decided to do St James Infirmary this month. Without doubt, this is the hardest thing I’ve tried seriously to learn from Andrews great selection of music. I’ve given up on a few harder things, but I stuck at this.
The result is not great, but by editing a couple of videos together I’ve got my best attempt down – not great, but I’ll keep at it in February, March, April…January 31, 2022 at 9:00 pm #50655kirpuffParticipant
Not perfect, but oh look its the 31st :O
Enjoyed this one! Thanks, Andrew!January 31, 2022 at 9:19 pm #50656mac1984Participant
I practiced here comes the sun most of the month but never got it to a point where I’d be happy with what i recorded so learned dream a little dream of me quickly. I’m going to keep going with here comes the sun though because that song is awesome!January 31, 2022 at 9:35 pm #50657themccoysParticipant
Just couldn’t resist the jazzy feel of this one, even if it’s a reach for me at this point. Also, finally figured out how to do a harmonic, which is EXCITING. I admit, I almost gave up on that point alone, but I’m so glad to have climbed that mountain. Now just to be able to hit it consistently 🙂
Def a lot of room for growth on this one, but captured a take without too many stumbles. Thanks as always for an awesome challenge!January 31, 2022 at 9:45 pm #50658lovebatsParticipant
Here is me playing here comes the sun. I started playing a couple of months ago so I am not a professional.January 31, 2022 at 10:12 pm #50659kpurdyParticipant
I think this was above my level, but I love the song and the arrangement is beautiful. I worked hard at it and should have recorded it a few days ago because I feel like I played it more smoothly. Oh well…learned a ton and had fun. Thanks for any feedback. I loved watching all of the great submissions!

Hey everyone! Hope everyone is having a great year! I think my goal for this year is to actually be able to play a song all the way through. Tax season has started so I’ll be back in a few months… 😆 but really though here is me pretty much playing each part but in pieces ! At least it was really sunny today
Still got practice to do on this one but thank you for the lesson!

Here is my submission of Dream a Little Dream of Me. It’s been great watching everyone’s videos!January 31, 2022 at 11:28 pm #50665sylus9Participant
This song was a stretch.. had a little Trouble with the swing timing.
Evans songs are becoming less scary lol
Can’t wait for the next list this year and half has been great!January 31, 2022 at 11:30 pm #50666dottiectrainParticipant
For this month’s challenge, I went with Dream a Little Dream.

I went with Five Foot Two – enjoyed the whole strumming course to get there. Of course, couldn’t find the time to really practice those chord changes.
Sorry, autofocus got turned off on the camera.
Also, I was out of cell phone range this weekend and couldn’t watch online to learn the last couple of chords.
Oh well, so fun!February 1, 2022 at 12:56 am #50669puppylovesukeParticipant
Had to compress above video to make the deadline (internet slow lol). This version is a little less painful on the ears (tried to give it some Doris Day drag)?

- This reply was modified 6 months, 2 weeks ago by Andrew. Reason: I deleted your first post, which was submitted within the deadline. So you will get an entry for this one even though it shows outside of the deadline :)
St James Infirmary was my first blues piece and it has its own challenges. We had some recording challenges this month so are doing this one using a shotgun mic off camera.
