And, does the song still exist when it’s not being played?

    HI from Thailand! And thanks for these videos, Lisa…There are so many songs that move me in an emotional way:- Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits singing “Monteleone” or “Romeo and Juliet”. Then there’s Woodie Guthrie’s, “Faith will heal you” and “This Land is Your Land…”

    Songs from the 1949 Broadway Musical, “South Pacific” were the favourites of my father who was a professional musician. He played these songs so often when I was a kid that I remember most all of them to this day. I have a lot of family memories connected with these songs, like “Happy Talk” and “Younger than Springtime”.

    Then there’s Bach’s, “Jesu, joy of man’s desiring”. I love this piece. I learned to play it on saxophone but I haven’t given it a go on guitar yet.

    So many wonderful, brilliant songs to learn on guitar…and I’ve got the time.
