Wow, great job, Elise!

To celebrate my renewed interest in the guitar, and the recent resurrection of the Tribute thread, here is another to keep it going... The first "Patty" song I ever learned to play (and one I've been having a ton of fun playing lately). It's not technically a Patty tribute, but it is most definitely a cover of her cover, so....

ps- I recorded this on a mini-disc recorder so that's why the sound is kinda not the best

Rock on Gillian!

Seriously, I'm almost inspired to make my dad dig my guitar out of the attic and learn how to play it.
I got it for my 10th birthday and took less than a year's worth of lessons - all my mom's idea(I have no idea why - I had almost no talent for it, except I've always loved singing).
Now that I think about it, that guitar is in almost perfect condition!
Is it really hard to learn and am I too old?

You're never too old to learn! And in terms of "hard", we're lucky, Patty's songs mostly use EASY chords. You only need to know, like, 10 of them to play half of her repertoire (the sign of a REAL songwriter- doing much with little). Sandi's been playing for what, a year, and she's written songs herself and posted tributes.

Come on, Liz, everyone's doing it!

Oh yeah, Liz! Do it! Kris is right, I've been playing about a year now - I taught myself!! I only play well enough to have fun - I am not "good" but I am so happy I decided to give it a try. And Patty's music is very easy to play ( even if it's just in a BASIC way )

/a wonders how good of condition your guitar is in since it's been in an attic though :?

Sandi, you more than kick ass! And you picked up on it so fast, self-taught? You are a natural! Writing your own music, too!

great job, Gillian! Nice to hear you again!And good that you are playing your guitar again.

Liz, I took up guitar at 40. Not that I'm a sterling example of guitar playing or anything, but just to tell you its never too late!

I also taught myself - it's really fun because you can hear/see yourself improving very quickly at the start. Once you get going it's pretty easy to pick stuff up. Although I am still struggling mightily with fingerpicking...but chords and rhythm guitar were fairly easy for me to learn. Go for it - I bet you will really enjoy it.

Nice work on "Half a Person," gillian...Morrissey would be proud. :)

And thanks for the comments on my version of NBN. I am still really super-freaked out about you all being able to hear me play and sing. Performance of any kind is really not an easy thing for me...I keep having urges to take it down, heh.

But many thanks to all of you for being nice,
