For Loving Me, Gordon LIghtfoot

This is my first video, and it was hard to do, and then figure out how to make the utube, but I got it, I think.
The thing is I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but I’m trying to learn the guitar. I have finished the first course, and have been practicing, and pulling out some old music as well. Be gentle…


Nice! I’m a big Gordon Lightfoot fan. You’ve done that one justice for sure.

I’m so jealous of how well you strum with your thumb!! You always say “I’m not a singer”, but you’re singing and it’s perfect! I love your voice for the tunes you do. Please keep posting. You’re such a joy to watch!

I’m a big Gordon Lightfoot fan too. Great tune, and really nice cover, and for a first video too. You’re keeping a nice steady beat, and you have smooth chord changes. Pull out some more of that old music! :smiley:

Thanks so much for the nice words! I have a question though, what is “cover” mean? I have heard others use it, but don’t know what it is? I will pull out more old music!


My goodness, how nice. That certainly is encouraging. I will keep posting. I’m taking both my guitars this week to Jam with my daughter and 8 year old grandson on the ukelele! Maybe we’ll try to video some!

Tony, thank you for the encouragement!

That was great playing! Never heard this song before.
Your strumming and chord changes sounded good, and your singing sounded cool!
Really enjoyed that! Thanks🙏

What an debut, Maidie :smiley:
That was great!

Someone fixed the hole in the bucket, dear Liza-
Now git back to that well and fetch some more! :laughing:

Hello Maidie,
This was a very nice first video, good to watch and listen…bucket problems???
nothing noticed…

Hello Madie, that was a great debut. You can certainly carry a tune. Look forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Maidie, very nice performance, I think that your playing and singing was fine!

Great stuff Maidie. You’re a better singer than you think! Well done on your first AVoYP.
Nicely played and sung.

Hi Maidie, “cover” means it’s a performance of a song originally done by another artist. Wikipedia has a good definition:

In popular music, a cover version, cover song, remake, revival, or simply cover, is a new performance or recording by a musician other than the original performer or composer of the song. Wikipedia

And your first was just as enjoyable as he second that I watched first, Maidie.

Playing is sounding good and as others have said, your singing is far better than you say.

I think when you put a little more in when going to the higher notes it improves. Perhaps it will help on this one to put a capo on and sing the whole a little higher. No need to be nervous and hold back.

Thank you so much tRONd (do I remember that your name is really Ron?) I showed my partner your video of Losing my Religion, which I loved. I may move on to Course 2 and see how I feel.

Brian, thank you so much. You all are so encouraging!

Thank you so very much, Roger. I was a bit nervous getting up this morning to see what my inbox would hold. I am very much encouraged.

Thanks James, I’m much encouraged!

Hi Darrel,
Thanks for your kind words. I love your icon, avatar?? Not sure of the correct name, but the cat with the moon. That is awesome. I see that you are also interested in photography- I dabble a bit myself.
I’ll be jamming with my family this next week, and looking forward to it.
