Song - Annie's Song
Artist - John Denver
Chord Source - http://www.guitaretab.com/j/john-denver/202858.html (capo on 2nd fret)
Whenever I hang out with my dad he mentions about 50 songs that I would love to do for this blog and then instantly forget about and try to spend the rest of the month remembering. This was a song that I could not believe I hadn't done yet. My dad sang this to my mom on her wedding day and I'm not sure a better love song has ever been written. He suggested that I give it a try at this tempo and I absolutely adore it.
Here is another very interesting cover of it for you Weezer fans out there!

Song - Forsaken Lover
Artist - Woody Guthrie (as far as I know?)
This is another song we did from the Woody Guthrie tribute I was in with my dad when I was a kid. It's still one of my favorites from that show and I'm surprised it hasn't made it's way into this blog yet! I couldn't find chords for it, so I had to wing it. I couldn't find anyone else covering so the tune is just from memory, I'm hoping I got it right!

Song - Winter's Come and Gone
Artist - Gillian Welch
Chord Source - http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/g/gillian_welch/winters_come_and_gone_crd.htm (I moved it up to "C" though)
Seems like when I feel like I have run out of new songs to try there is always a Gillian Welch one I haven't taken a stab at yet!

Song - Rock Salt and Nails
Artist - Utah Phillips
Chord Source - http://www.cowboylyrics.com/tabs/miller-buddy/rock-salt-and-nails-3672.html
I heard this song for the first time last night performed by Hook and Anchor. It was so beautiful and haunting, and turned out to be such a joy to play. Hook and Anchor was incredible all around but this was one of my favorite songs they did all night.
