Grade 1 Exam Song #2 - "Chocolate Jesus" - Tom Waits

I love the form of this song and the lyrics are fantastic. It is so fun to play. This is one of the songs that really inspired me to sing and play at the same time.

I do love Tom Waits. Decent performance!

Mysterious ways of the YT algorithms: after your piece finished it’s proposed I watch Ian Hislop embarrasses politicians in select committee-PoliticsJoe :rofl:

How did I miss this?

I agree with you, its one of my favourite songs. You’ve done a great job with it Dan. You’ve got a great vibe going here. Justin has a few other Tom Waite’s song lessons too when you’re ready for them.
