I finally ran a search for an acoustic rendition, and found one of Bruce Johnston, who wrote the song, performing it solo, on the piano... I was very happy to see his rendition, which made me give mine one more try... though I did leave out the Bridge... didn't think I could do it justice... hope you enjoy it... let me know what you think... have a Blessed weekend...

Emile Champion - Autumn Leaves - Joseph Kosma/Johnny Mercer/Eva Cassidy - cover - 11/2/20 Worked on this last night, writing it out, tweaking, adding, removing chords, memorizing it... not as hard when done over and over and over... part of the long process was due to lots of heavy and loud traffic on Louetta Road, in front of the church... part was the B Major chord... I sorta cheat on it by playing an A2 on the 4th fret... sometimes I get it clear, and sometimes I don't... depends on how tired I am, and how sore my fingers are....they were pretty sore last night... I think this worked well... I selected it from among three that I completed... there are a few spots where I messed up the B Major, one in particular... let me know if you think I should re-do with fresh fingers... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching....

Emile Champion - Since I Fell For You - Buddy Johnson/Ella Johnson/Lenny Welch - cover - 10/14/20 Well, in providing the backstory, at the end of tonight’s recording, I completely forgot the name Lenny Welch, the performer who popularized this song in 1963.... in my defense, I was 10 years old in 1963... and, while I had heard the song sometime in the past, it wasn’t top of mind, until I ran across it this afternoon... so, after work, I pulled up a chord sheet online, penciled the lyrics on a notepad (I’m without a printer right now... long story)... converted the key and chords to fit my voice and guitar, and changed the arrangement by repeating the Bridge and final verse... I couldn’t work on the song until about 8:00, because of dinner and various classes and meetings at the church (the home of my unofficial “recording studio”)... had lots of starts & stops in recording it, as I memorize and record at the same time... I have a process... start... mess up... restart, make it a little further... zone out and mess up... start over... finally nail the first Verse... mess up the Chorus... start over.... and over... and over... make it near the end of the recording... coming in for the landing... and two motorcycles race by outside, at 50 mph... revving their engines.... start over.... I completed this recording tonight at about 10:25.... a song I had never chorded or played before... after a busy day at work... with no printer... forgot Lenny Welch’s name... sorry, Lenny.... hope you enjoy my rendition... thanks for watching...

I had never heard of Baker, so Googled him last night, and found that he had also written this old, major hit for Ricky Nelson... penciled out today after work, and took a few hours, with a bunch of starts and stops, to get it down and completed from memory... Tweaked the ending, versus what I wrote here... on the final tag, the three chords are CM7, Am7, and G... for a little different sound.... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching...

Emile Champion - Lost In The Woods - Kristen Anderson-Lopez/Robert Lopez/Jon. Groff - cover - 8/7/20 I don’t read music but, as best I can tell, the original, as performed by Kristoff and his raindeer pals, covers three keys, or at least two.... with my bent left arm, I’m limited to what I can physically play on the guitar, so I took the chord sheet I found online, kept some of it, and tweaked quite a bit. I think that, what I came up with is pretty, and somewhat close to the original... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching... would appreciate your thoughts and comments... have a Blessed weekend, my friends...

Emile Champion - We’ve Only Just Begun - Paul Williams/Roger Nichols/The Carpenters - 8/2/20 I would have liked one more effort, but ran out of time... I didn't go back to the Chorus, because the big callous on my left hand was getting in the way of a nice clear E Major and A Major 7. Lots of guitar at church today.... I purposely did not resolve the ending.... because we’ve only just begun... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching....

Emile Champion - This Masquerade - Leon Russell/George Benson/Carpenters/H. Reddy - cover - 7/31/20 I’ve always loved this song, but didn’t think I could make it work on the guitar, because of the limitations from my bent left arm. I tweaked it just a little bit, from what I found online, mainly on the last two lines of the Chorus. Typed it up last night, hand wrote the chords in, after some trial and error. Hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching....

Bettis - Karen Carpenter - cover Karen Carpenter’s favorite, among all the songs recorded by The Carpenters... pretty good rendition, for being memorized and recorded, in under two hours, this afternoon... lots of starts and stops, but only one complete “take”... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching...

Emile Champion - Candle On The Water - Al Kasha/Joel Hirschorn/Helen Reddy - cover - 7/13/20 I recently covered two songs from Disney films... “Speechless” and “All is Found”.... so a couple of nights ago, I ran a search for “inspirational songs from Disney”, and found this one... It’s from a 1977 Disney animated/live action film “Pete’s Dragon”.... I was two years out of college, and hadn’t met Lynn Champion yet... (I think she was about to graduate from high school)... so I really wasn’t tuned in to Disney at the time... so hadn’t heard it until the other night... but it’s pretty, with a good message... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching...
