A guitar.....A campfire !!

After 40 years, I finally decided to play guitar again (2015).....and it's weird how you still know your chords after all these years.
Last summer, I brought my guitar with me and started to play around a campfire. What happened next...... our neighbors asked if they could join us, and we had such a good time. I played some of my songs, they played theirs and everyone was singing.....

I'm sure some of you folks play guitar or sing around a campfire and I thought I could share my favorite songs and perhaps some of you have your favorite ones too. Maybe that way we can have more songs to our list.

So, here is a list of five songs I love to play:

1- Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffett)
2- Brown eyed girl (Van Morrison)
3- The sound of silence (Simon & Garfunkel)
4- California dreamin' (Mamas & Papas)
5- A kind of hush (Herman's Hermits)

We are lucky to occasionally camp with folks who enjoy music. None of us are pros by any means, but we love to sit around and sing and play! I've started bringing my Ike on most trips. Some of our faves:

- Pink Houses by John Mellencamp
- Wild Horses by the Rolling Stones
- any 3-chord Beatles song (usually turns into a medley)

Maybe we will cross paths one of these days!

I can play a 'C', 'D' and 'G' chords and occasionally plink out a decent 'F'.

That means I can play 99% of country music songs.

DH plays Guitar and Mando. He plays folk, bluegrass, and some classic rock. As to his favorite, well I will have to ask him. He is good enough that he can follow along to what the lead player is playing.

Oh why can't we ever end up camped near any of you? We seem to be always near the deep bass thumpers!

My wife and I are just learning how to play the guitar. My Mom just recently gave me her guitar (we played it when we were kids and broke the strings, still had the broke strings on it LOL). My wife's Dad bought her an Ibanez years ago so I went ahead and restrung that one as well. Hopefully we can learn a few chords and strum out by the campfire this Summer!

The DW is a singer/songwriter and has been playing at the campfire for years.
She grew up camping and always did it for her family.

After we married, she got me into camping and she continued the tradition with us and the friends we camp with.
