Pocket Man


There was another sing-around at The Plough Inn this afternoon and I contributed a couple of songs (on banjo). First off, pocket… sorry, Rocket Man. I popped to the local supermarket this morning but, as I approached the tills, thought I’d forgotten my wallet. I’d even rung Jane and arranged for her to come down before I discovered that I’d put it in the wrong pocket in my coat! I caught Jane in time to save her the walk but that inspired me to give the Elton John and Bernie Taupin song a spin.

On my second go, I’d been preparing to sing Needed Time, a gospel song that I particularly associate with Lightning Hopkins. However, Mo went just before me and sang Jesus on the Mainline so I decided to go back to my original plan and see how I got on with a banjo version of Proud Mary. The different instrument and transposing from A down to G (the easy banjo key!) certainly gave it a spin which worked well, although I think the key of A suits my voice better for projecting.

There’s another session due in a couple of weeks although, at some point soon, the pub is sadly due to close for an indefinite period so we need to make the most of them.
