No puns intended but it is one of Gord's most beautiful songs. Neil's lesson but I decided to strum instead of pick. Took me a while to get my head around how to sing it but I could listen to Corina sing it in another key and could finally work it out! :D

Nice job Chris. Your guitar sounds great and the vocals were really nice! You're lucky to have Corina nearby!

Thanks for listening in Craig!
The Takamine sounds great plugged in with a little reverb and chorus 👍.... and having Corina as my singing coach is a bonus! 😊

Although I have some anthology of Gordon's and bought an instructional DVD by Pete Huttlinger, I'm mostly familiar with his hits. That DVD is buried in a box somewhere next to Pete's Croce and Denver instructionals. It's been so long I can't recall if I learned any of those songs. This sounds slightly familiar. I'll have to check out the original.

I've always been partial to If You Could Read My Mind. Amazon prime has a nice documentary on Mr. Lightfoot. I was surprised when Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson (RUSH) made appearances in it. He was a big deal even to Canadian rockers.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks for sharing. Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate that. If not, Happy Nov 25th.

Thanks for listening GeeWhy!
Gord is one of my favourite songwriters and If you could read my mind is my favourite song.
I love his story telling.
No thanks giving here.... turkeys are safe until Christmas 😊. But I shall make it a happy day and play a few songs 👍
