I saw QUO tonight. Not old rockers Status Quo but the Quorn Ukulele Orchestra, who came to our church do a gig.
I was accompanied by one of the young lads from church who is keen to learn. I suggested he ought to go to the concert and pick out the songs he liked and then, realising his mum might not want to spend her Saturday evening on that, offered to look after him for the evening. I’ve now got my list of songs to pull together – some I know well and one or that I’ll need to look up.
One of those was Shotgun by George Ezra – far too 21st century for me (released in 2018)! There’s a cool bassline on the recorded version but the basic chords look pretty simple – just I IV vi V… like numerous songs from the contemporary church repertoire.
