This week I picked the infamous “Fire and Rain” by James Taylor, because, you know, I play it so much better than he does! lol Or not. Anyway, we have the same initials … that works right?
Ok so I learned this song long ago … probably one of the first more complex guitar songs I learned, back in my finger picking phase. Then I was playing live one night, and someone requested a James Taylor song, and this is the only one I recalled. I got a lot of compliments on it, so I thought I would try it here.
I think it’s a fair version … there are a few mistakes/weak spots, but I’m not gonna tell you where if they’re not blatantly obvious (which they are!) And … I think I’m going to stick to my new way of recording, even though it does kind of make the videos seem lip sync’d.
So let me know what you think!
