The tune for today is one that I wrote on my guitar. It is named for a creek in Texas whose sign caught my fancy. Hope you like it.:) The tune is played straight through, and there are two pages to it because of the tab…..notice that I mentioned to play it with a lilt -meaning like sort of dotted notes even though I didn’t notate it that way.
Hockley Creek – Gtr TAB
Here is a video of how I play it, but I’m sure that it can be done differently depending on the instrument or mood of the musician at the time.
As always, get out your guitar and try this tune or any other one that you feel like working on. It’ll make the day more cheerful, and you’ll be glad that you did!
The tune of the day is
GRANNY, WILL YOUR DOG BITE?
A strange name, to be sure, but it’s a fun and easy tune to learn.:) We have neighbors who have a bull dog, and one day it bit the shoe of one of my sons who had stuck his tennis shoe through the fence. The dog wasn’t being aggressive, and is normally a friendly sort, but it sure scared my son! So, maybe the title should be, Neighbor, Does Your Bulldog Bite?
Granny Will Your Dog Bite – Gtr TAB Here is the PDF with guitar TAB as well as notation.
I found this young group who played Granny, Will Your Dog Bite with a little different style, but they make you tap your feet.
So…….you know what’s coming………grab your guitar and try it out.
Oh, a new feature to my blog is a page that has all of the tunes in PDF all in one spot (see the banner across the top of the page). I am adding some “learning” videos, with the tunes played at a moderate speed so that you can learn it a little easier than trying to follow someone playing at lightning speed. LOL I will keep adding tunes and videos, so come back and check it out!
