      What are you playing these days?

      I’m working on a set list for a few gigs in the UK next month and for some inexplicable reason have been digging into my back catalog.

      – Last Train from Poor Valley (Rice & Blake)
      – John Barleycorn Must Die
      – The Weight
      – If You Were to Wake Up (Lyle Lovett)
      – Annabelle (Gillian Welch)

      I just lost my dog last week who was my very best buddy, so I’m arranging a sentimental version of — Redwood Tree by Van Morrison. I’m also playing:

      Oh My Love, John Lennon

      Vincent Black Lightning, Richard Thompson

      Diamonds and Rust, Joan Baez

      and the classic, Baby Please Don’t Go

      Just added Marti Jones’ 1985-ish song “Crusher” to the list at a friend’s request. INteresting tune; she’s rewritten some of the lyrics to make it work better.

      I am in two different bands. Our song lists have about 50 tunes total.

      My current project is the Beatles In My Life on Weissenborn in Open D for a wedding.

      last week the bassist and I learned Althea and Jackaroe. Chords are easy. Lyrics are much harder to memorize.

      Hey Matt,
      What’s the occasional ‘Yes’ in the set notation?  Is that you singing?

      I think it’s for the pedal steel player for back up vocals, but not entirely sure. I need to buy my own SM 57 and step up.
