Song information

    One thing to look out for when teaching the into /outro is that singers, especially in bass, tend not to count in 8 bar 'blues' loops and end up one line ahead, because the last line is same as the first. The line 'life is no rehearsal' always take the longest time to teach!'
  • In the package:5 audio files and 2 PDF files.
  • Genre:Songs of Celebration
  • Mood:Bluesy, Funky, Upbeat
  • Level:Easy & straightforward
