Wild Sage - Original Cover!

I've got a little time on my hands lately, so I'm noodling around with more songs. Here is my faithful rendition of "Wild Sage" by the Mountain Goats, from their album Get Lonely.

Downtown Train - Original Cover!

Tom Waits's "Downtown Train" has been in my head for a few days, so I decided to figure it out on guitar. Then I sang it at karaoke last night, and it wasn't too shabby. I'm using something closer to the key Rod Stewart sang it in, 'cause Tom's range is a might too low, as you can imagine. Hope you enjoy it!

Join Together

Inspired to post again, 'cause this odd one hit me out of nowhere today. It's not one of my most tapped Who songs, but it's got a good groove. It's also 42 years old, as of this summer. Much like me.

Artist: The Who
Year: 1972
