Re: VOTE FOR TIM!!! NEIL YOUNG looking for covers of American Classics

Thanks Char, I just saw that I've been knocked out of the top 50 and need 10 more votes just to get back up into it. So if any of my fellow Lightheads have been considering voting for me, I'd sure...

Re: VOTE FOR TIM!!! NEIL YOUNG looking for covers of American Classics

Wow, jj! You've still got the set list? My memory by the way - which could be faulty - was that you couldn't make it that night for some reason. That was a fun evening. Here's one of the videos of...

Re: What is your favourite song by Gordon Lightfoot?

Re: Gord Chord question

Hi everyone,

I'm back with my two cents. First a technical matter. As we all know, Gord capos at fret two. Which means that what we casually refer to as a "G" (fret three of 6 fret 2 of five fret...
