My Old Timey Baby - Dan Hicks
I've been a Dan Hicks fan for a while now, the quirky tunes, weird harmonies and interesting arranging and staging of his performances have always inspired me. I was sad to hear of his passing, but glad that it was a catalyst to share his music with all of you.
Check out the violin solo at the start of the first video, and the choreography in the second. Also in the second video notice how they focus in on the bassist during his solo, its a bit overboard, but still a really cool way to say "check out what they can do"
Box charts and chord sheets posted here are for the Key of A... be warned that we will be learning "My Old Timey Baby" in 2 different keys so that both ladies and gents have a chance to sing the melody.
I'm in the process of uploading the videos from NIFPA onto youtube, I'm not the best at navigating the Tubes, so it will take a while. I'll let you know when they are up.
