After Hours

After Hours is a great song from the late 60 by the Velvet Underground this reminiscent of the 1920's. Some of the chords for this song out on the net are very wrong. I think I've got them correct with this version.

Crazy

All time great country song. Written by Willie Nelson, a #1 hit for Patsy Cline. Here in the key of C as Willie does it, Patsy does it in Bb. For simplicity I omitted key shift up a half step for the last verse, chords are complicated enough as is.

Danny's Song

by Loggins and Messina. As a college freshman I blew off studying for a psychology midterm to go to see Loggins and Messina. I got a C+ on the exam. Great concert.

Reason To Believe

the Tim Hardin song (not the Bruce song). Hardin did a nice version but in my opinion the definitive version is by Rod Stewart.

Hallelujah

by Leonard Cohen. Leonard sings it in G. Most covers use C like it is here. Covered by many, maybe the two best covers Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright. Leonard Cohen is rumored to have written 80 different verses.

Moondance

jazzy, romantic classic by Van Morrison. I just had to include this one given the title of the October 24th meetup. There are many ways to play it, here I give some very easy open chord chord voicings for guitar that I believe work out well.

Tonight I'll be Staying Here With You

Bob Dylan from Nashville Skyline. I hadn't listened to this in a long time. Joe H reminded me of this one. Great song.

How Deep Is Your Love

by the Bee Gees. We all lived through disco (Saturday Night Fever), but you gotta take a great song where you find it. I rediscovered this on a youtube vid of a cover by of all people John Frusiciante (lead guitarist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers).

End Of The World

sad country song by Skeeter Davis from 1963. I heard it last night at the end of an episode of Mad Men. Here in G, if you want to play with the Bb original capo on 3rd fret.

Heart of the Country

from Paul McCartney's 1971 Ram Album. The scat guitar part is hard but I keep trying.

House Of The Rising Sun

Traditional song covered by everybody under the sun. Most famous is probably the Animals and Bob Dylan. This is also a great chord progression for jamming over.

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

Bob Dylan classic. Dylan uses a capo on 4 to bring it from C to E.

Five Hundred Miles

popularized by Peter, Paul and Mary. My chords differ slightly from other chords out there on the web, but this is how I remember it, from singing it at summer camp a long time ago.
