Occasionally a folk song finds its way into my repertoire. As I am not much for folk music, in general, such songs have to be better than average to entice me to learn them.

‘Both Sides Now’, written and recorded by Joni Mitchell, is one...

One Tin Soldier

I don't usually go for folk music but this one has a particularly good story and lesson in it. 'One Tin Soldier', written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, is not only well written but has great music. It was recorded, originally by a band called "The Original Caste" but I have no idea who the artist I heard sing it was. Who ever he or she...

Torn Screen Door

Sometimes it is very hard to classify a song into a given category. Country? Folk? Traditional? All you know for certain is that there is something about the tune that appeals to you.

Shenandoah: Author unknown.

One of the most beautiful instrumental pieces I have ever heard has to be Shenandoah. A classic American Folk song, it is slow intricate and moving. I have tried to learn a version of this tune ever since I started learning to pick and I must admit I have yet to master it by a long shot. Still I thought it would be nice to record my efforts so far and see how it came out. Anyway here it is. I hope you will like it.
