NEW GIG SONGS/MUSIC

                                                    'Ripple'.

 

Not many of you, if any, will know this, it's a song that I really like by 'The Grateful Dead' from 1970 and has what I would say is a 'Folk'sy/Country' feel to it.

I did this as a solo spot at the beginning of this year and a few of you seemed to enjoy it so I would like to try it and you've got a week to practice it!

 

You may wonder as to what the lyrics mean, I think this explanation is probably on the right track:-

“Ripple” is about making peace with life, and finding a path that suits you by learning from the other lost people around you, and of course embracing the power of joy through music. It's about remembering that we're all in this together, but also that your life is your own to lead.

 

Here are some links to YouTube videos including a ukulele version by the Austin Ukulele Society that you can play along to, in fact you can play along to all these versions as the song sheet is in the original key.
