One of my favorite 70's songs by David Gates and Bread. After a long while strugglung with the somewhat unusual fingerstyle picking patern, I think Ive basically got it sounding pretty good. Now just to memorize it with lyrics snd up to original tempo. Very pretty song.

Neil that is a beautiful song. It won't take long to learn the lyrics because the will be embedded into the heart before reaching the brain. Ten years ago, I lost my best friend to cancer. At the funeral, a soloist sang this song and there wasn't a dry eye in the church.

You're putting in the "mileage" and building a song repertoire too.

An example for others to follow 

(One of these days I'll have to shift gears and follow)

A beautiful memory for you Henk. I understand your loss... I too had a friend lost ( a drowning incident ) It was  many years ago, but I often remember how we listened to records (vinyl LP's of our favorite band "The Guess Who") together.  It's a reminder of how certain songs evoke strong memories of significant events in our lives.

I learned If from the Song Hits course. I have played If for several years now. I don't try to sing it because I am a little busy playing. The singer from Bread sings in a fairly high pitch that is out of my range. I have to thank Steve Krenz for the skills and knowledge he helped me attain over the last several years.
