This isn't one from John G's list, but I think he would have liked it and I didn't know where else to put it. It's called "Faded Love" and it's the first song I learned on violin a few years ago. Violin, harmony, and guitar.

I'm terrible at recording and editing videos, playing violin, and I haven't had my guitar out of the closet in 40 years, so I guess I forgot how to play it!

This video is a little embarrassing, but I was bored this afternoon and wanted to have a little fun. Once again, it won't be up for long. Anyway.........

Thank you all for the nice comments.

It's certainly true that you can learn a lot by making a recording and then listening to yourself play. I rushed this one through in one take. Next time I'll know better.

I wish members would do more of these. Just jump in and do it! It's fun to make and fun to listen to others play. It's how we all learn. Lots of good songs left on JohnG's list.

Thanks again,

Grandpaviolin

Excellent,  I have messed around with faded love but have not deadacated the time to learn it.

And I agree John would have loved it.
