We’re doing more and more ‘music hangouts’ hereabouts, and I’m looking for suggestions on what sorts of music we should be adding to our ‘songbook’. The standard fare are entries from Rise up Singing, but I’m looking to widen out the offerings.
We’ve added things like Allman Brothers – “Melissa” and the like, plus some Chicago, a lot of CSN&Y, Indigo Girls, things of that nature. If you were having a bunch of folks over, and wanted to play music together, with a bent toward classic rock and folk tunes, what would you add to the list?
I’ve added a list of the tabs I’ve already collected behind the cut.
The best type of songs are ones that play well on acoustic guitar, bass, and a hand drum. Good choral vocals are a win. Occasionally we have more involved musicians playing, so woodwinds or other instruments are often added, but it’s generally a few 6 and 12 string guitars, my bass, and the singers.
