A Song I Wish I Could Play

July 16, 2014

There are two songs that I have struggled to play ever since I was 14-years old.

Thin Lizzy: Emerald

The Shadows: Foot-tapper

I can play them both after a fashion, (I should be able to – I’ve been trying for over 30 years). I know the notes I need to play. But I can never master them. They never form the song they are supposed to form. Not by a mile. And I kind of like that!

BTW, I’d have loved to hear a 1970’s Stevie Wonder taking on Emerald. Couldn’t you just hear the brass section who play on Sir Duke or Masterblaster taking on those guitar licks!
