Father and Son - Cat Stevens

When I was 14 and just picked up my first guitar, this song was the rage. I tried to learn it then but didn’t get very far with it. Run forward 50+ years and I thought let’s give it a go again. Great song from a great folk artist. I hope you guys like my version (capoed up for my voice.)

Sounded great as always, Ron.

I think the setup is good, in the sweet spot, not dry and sounding natural rather than processed which is my preference for singer-songwriter style performances like this.

Not much else I can say in regards to your shares, you are semi-pro gig level IMHO, and I enjoy listening to you. Can’t really do much more than click :heart: here.

That was awesome Ron, a beautiful song beautifully sung - so much feeling coming through in your delivery. Very, very well played and deserving of a mighty round of applause, but the best I can offer is a few emoticons :slight_smile: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi Ron,
I think this song and the lyrics are fantastic, and so beautiful that I wrote an essay about it in my head (no… don’t be scared … it stays in my head :roll_eyes:)

You performed it beautifully, my wife called from the garden which artist covered this version… :sunglasses: :clap: :bouquet: :man_bowing:
Greetings,Rogier
