Chocolate Jesus

OK, here goes: any more prevaricating and this will never be uploaded. My level: just started Module 12 of Grade 2.

This is my take on ‘Chocolate Jesus’ by Tom Waits complete with 10-12 mis-hits with the thumb :roll_eyes:

I do tend to get, um, ‘emotionally involved’ with songs, as you can see :rofl:


Loved it, you made it your own :clap: great stuff :v:

Thank you all so very much for the kindness & support you have shown in commenting on my first AVoYP. So many mistakes and serious lack of confidence, yet nothing but positivity from you all. Seriously made my day. Really gives inspiration and desire to carry on.

I have kisses, hugs, pats on the back, thank you notes and doves of peace available: take your pick, you are all welcome to what you desire. Have the most wonderful of weekends and know that you have made mine brighter. :kissing_heart: :hugs: :pray: :dove: :v:

That’s very kind, Dave, thanks.

Thank you. :grinning: Mis-hits are there, Jenny! :sweat_smile: I think that maybe my ‘involvement’ in the song takes attention away from my mistakes on the guitar! :rofl:

Thank you so much, Trond. Very kind. :grinning:

Thank you, Richard. Certainly many different ways of playing this.

Thanks, Andrea. :grinning: I can’t play any other way than to put my all into something. If I start actually thinking about it, that’s when it starts to go wrong! :rofl:

Super-kind, Vitalik. Thank you. :grinning:

Your guitar playing is good, your voice is really fantastic and your performance is a joy to watch…Your first video??? we can be super overenthusiastic here, especially with the first video, but all the praise above is doubly deserved :man_bowing: :man_bowing: :man_bowing:
