Jam 18 – Better Days by Pete Murray

A very special episode – come join me in a live pub session! I recorded this session at Moondyne Joe’s, so you can sit down with us, have a pint and jam along.

Pete Murray is an Australian singer songwriter. He does beautiful, quite simple songs. This one, however is a bit of a challenge. Mainly due to the strumming pattern, but don’t worry! I break it down for you.

Jam 17 – Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran

Skip ahead to 4:48 to get straight to the lesson.

This one is for Howie! She wanted us to cover this song a long time ago. And I hesitated, because I hated it. But I changed my mind, and now I love it. Now I have my hot toddy, and I’m jamming it with you.

It’s pretty simple, I go over the basic chords and strumming pattern, then I show you some extra fiddly bits you can do to make it sound nicer. THEN I go over the solo! What a great solo, it sticks to the pentatonic scale and does a few tricks that are applicable to almost any other song.

There’s a surprise on the Youtube video clip – I inserted a live show of my jam session playing at Moondyne Joe’s in Fremantle. I also have a second camera on my hand so you can watch the chord changes. 

Caution before the live section of the podcast – we are no Ed Sheerans. We have a lot of fun singing this, but we can’t sound like him. So if this song is really really important to you and you don’t want it sullied, maybe you should skip jamming with us to this, put the capo on the 2nd fret, and play it with Ed Sheeran

Jam 16 – Dirty Old Town by The Pogues

Skip ahead to 04:23 to get straight to the lesson.

Dirty Old Town, a song that is incredibly fun to play as a group. Try it! It’s incredible, especially if everyone knows the words, and somebody can play the solo’s, which are quite simple.

So I go over the strumming pattern, I talk a little about the 3 changes in key, and I step you through the solo.
