I Will

by the Beatles. I always played this in F like the Beatles and always found it slightly uncomfortable. I recently saw a youtube video of Sir Paul playing it in E. I'ts easier that way and as a bonus it's slightly easier to sing in E.

Under The Boardwalk

big hit for the Drifters. I believe we did this at one of the meetups during the summer. December sure seems like a long way from being under the boardwalk.

It Ain't Me Babe

Two slightly different arrangements (Dylan and Turtles). I just finished reading a Bob Dylan biography. We need more Dylan!

Quinn the Eskimo

One more Dylan song. This is pretty much the Manfred Mann version, taken down to G to make it easier to sing.

It's the Same Old Song

A great old Four Tops number. They did it in C. I' don't have a voice like Levi Stubbs, so I've been playing around with different keys, and finally settled on G. Here I've provided the song in both keys.

Kansas City

by Lieber and Stoller. This is sort of a combo arrangement of several versions. We need to do more blues. My favorite version of the song is David Bromberg's awesome version from his '74 Album 'Wanted Dead or Alive'.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door

Here's one we did at the last jam. This Dylan song is so simple we almost don't need to post it here. I've added an additional verse Bob sang on the Before the Flood tour. Bob's sung *many* alternate versions of the verses over the years.

Bye Bye Love

A fun Everly Brothers song. I don't know how to notate the intro, but I'm sure someone in the group can play it.

The Weight

Great Band tune with three part harmonies. Reformatted.

by Neil Youg. It has a palm muted, syncopated beat that you can really get in to. Reformatted with some chord/tab corrections.

A Neil Young & Crazy Horse epic from 1975's Zuma, formatted and with minor lyric corrections.

Hard Travelin'

There are many variations of this Woody Guthrie number. This is the way I do it, using a slower tempo than normal. (Update: Fixed one incorrect line, 1/24/2010)
