Like the Moon, and the Stars, and the Sun.

Hey all you Music Lovers!

How is your King of the Road coming?  I bet you are playing it like a house on fire by now.  Here is something you might add to your repertoire:

Side by Side

Now, don't forget our prime directive... you forgot it, didn't you?  Our prime directive, our highest goal, is to play the song, no matter how poorly, no matter how slowly, no matter how many 'mistakes.'  This is not a stage, it is a living room, and no one need be in it while you play.  You, me, we, are just makin' some noise, and ain't nobody gonna stop us now.

Side by Side has 6 easy chords.  Find them right here.  This fine fellow, Rob Hampton, has a terrific  website for learning guitar.  He is your pal, in the apartment next door, who plays great, and is happy to show you a few tricks.  He has a particularly useful section on strumming... but remember, you don't have to learn all that to be in our band- just smack the strings now and then in a way that feels right.  We don't have to play by the rules, you know.

Shine on.
