As we head into the Holidays I want to wish the whole TG family health and happiness, as well as thanks from everybody here and behind the scenes for being part of the family. Today’s recap started with the usual, offbeat and random improv based on some recognizable melodies, and there were a few others scattered throughout the segment.

We did manage to get a few new things out this week, including a do-it-yourself approach to Coventry Carol, Max’s look at Eric Clapton’s Lay Down Sally, and a package of James Blunt lessons.

I also talked a bit about what some of my students are working on and how that inspired the approach to Coventry Carol, which I hope some of you take the time to tackle. It will make figuring out the progressions to many songs much easier.

Maybe more next week, but no telling for sure just yet.

Happy Holidays,

Neil

After taking last week off, on a few fronts, today’s News started with a little instrumental attempt at one of the things that got heavy airplay here at TG Central over the Thanksgiving weekend. The loose ends get tied up with some books and videos that were part of the trip.

Some of the things going on here at TG include a Cyber Week DVD sale, as well as new DVDs from Jim Bruno, his Beginning Vocal Course, and a set of Acoustic Christmas lessons on instrumental arrangements, all of which are part of the Target Program but now available on DVD. We also released a couple new artist 5-packs, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell.

We had quite a variety of new Target releases with Simple Minds’ Don’t You (Forget About Me), and a pair of Bee Gees songs, Morning Of My Life and New York Mining Disaster 1941, all thanks to Vanessa, a FOTW lesson with Sandy tackling Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love (thanks to Adele putting it on Sandy’s radar), and a ‘do it yourself’ lesson, with really only a little direction on the very old Christmas melody, O Come O Come Emmanuel.

At the end there was a little trip down memory lane, going back 40 years to an event that was huge in Northern California, and eventually all around the musical world. Hopefully everybody will figure out the cryptic instrumental excursions that materialized related to the book and CD/DVD set brought out at the end.

Off to our small town tree lighting now,

Neil
