We talked at the last session about playing a gig in the first week of June but the venue is not available unfortunately. We will have a chat about this at the next session.
So instead of a gig we are going to have a themed evening and the theme is…….. ‘Weather’! All the tracks mention it in some way or other. Here is the set –
Bad Moon Rising (G), Bring me Sunshine (G), Fats Domino Medley (C), Here comes the Sun (G), In the Summertime (C), Make you feel my Love (G), Mr Blue Sky (F), Rawhide (A minor), Rhinestone Cowboy (C), Riders on the Storm (Em), She (C), Sunny Afternoon (Dm), Under the Boardwalk (C), Walking on Sunshine (D), Weather with You (Em), What a Wonderful World (C)
Hope to see lots of you there, new members are always welcome, it’s fun and relaxed and if you know a few chords and can strum a bit you’ll be fine. And please feel free to come back again if you haven’t joined us for a while!
Got a good session lined up for next Tuesday, all are welcome to come down!
And the set is…..
And then I Kissed Her (G), Back for Good (C), Blue Suede Shoes (A), Brown Eyed Girl (G), Budapest (G), Chanson D’Amour (D), Delilah (Em), Don’t get me Wrong (G), Give it Up (D), Handbags and Gladrags (G), Hotel California (Am), I Feel like I’m Fixing to Die rag (D), I’ll Fly Away (G), Living Doll (A), Living on a Prayer (Em)
…..is on the 30th April. If you are new or just haven’t been for a while, come and join in. It’s always a good laugh and no one cares if you struggle to keep up or make mistakes.
Here is the set list (with keys as requested!)
You’re the one that I want (Am), You make me feel like a natural woman (C), With a little help from my friends (D), Wildwood Flower (C), Whiskey in my Whiskey (G), What a Wonderful World (A), Urban Spaceman (G), Three little birds (C), Sweet Caroline (A), Stand by me (C), Rabbit (F), Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps (Dm).
We are going to do Wild Horses (G) which we have done once before ages ago, plus two that we discussed in the last session – I feel like I’m fixing to die (D7, apologies for the swearing in the video) and Hotel California (Am) . All of these can be found on the Scorpex Website which is ace….
The next session is on the 16th. All are welcome, come and join in the fun……

Hi all, we are booked to play 30 to 45 mins at the Seething Wells Festival in Surbiton on Sunday March 3rd. The time is to be confirmed but it will be somewhere between 2 and 5.
I’ve chosen a relatively straight forward set for the next session on the 19th Feb, and we will take the final set list for the gig from whatever goes best.
Here it is then……….Amarillo, Bad Moon Rising, Be My Baby, Bring Me Sunshine, Country Roads, Da Doo Ron Ron, Daydream Believer, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, Hey Good Lookin’, It Must Be Love, Make You Feel My Love, Somewhere Only We Know, SOS, Stuck In The Middle With You, These Boots Are Made For Walking, Walk Of Life
We have a gig booked! It is on the 27th March at the George Evelyn Open Mic Night in Long Ditton; I think we will be on at around 8 30.
I’ve got next weeks set for the group session (on the 20th) sorted out and the seven song set for the gig will come from it, so if anyone wants to do a bit of practise then they can. But the gig really is nothing to worry about for any of you who haven’t played before – not only is there safety in numbers but also the crowd who come to these nights are very friendly. And the word ‘crowd’ is an exaggeration.
Don’t worry if you can’t/aren’t sure about/definitely don’t want to do the gig – everyone is welcome to the session at the library as normal.
Anyway, next weeks set list –
And then I Kissed Her, Bad Moon Rising, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Come on up to the House, Everyday, Folsom Prison Blues/Pinball Wizard, Goody Two Shoes, Happy Together, Hound Dog, Living Doll, Rocking all over the World, Sloop John B, Stuck in the Middle with you, Sunny Afternoon, These Boots are made for Walking.
Thanks to Kate and Martin for their input on this list!
Hi all, we’re back for the next session on Tuesday 6th.
Usual time, usual place, hope to see lots of you there!
