Default Do You Like To Play Gordon Lightfoot Songs?

Hi, my name is Robert and I live in the San Francisco bay area. Specifically Treasure Island (look it up) I am a musician and I have played Gordons music on the streets here and in bars and dives for a long time. I was in Hawaii working for seven months and they just loved it there. I love to play and I was hoping that I could find some people locally that maybe wanted to play some too. I saw Gordons show in Stockton Ca. last night Oct. 15, and I am re inspired to start playing again. If your interested, call me ....Robert 415-734-8251. I play a 12 string acoustic electric and I have a pretty good knowledge of Gordons music. Let me know if your interested. Thx

hi there

the bottom 2 rows of videos show some of us folks having fun playing a variety of Gord tunes over the past several years (even though the fun dates back many decades)...some of these folks are from the west coast

The closet I'll ever come to playing Gords tunes is when I put one of my CD's in my CD player. Other that that, I'm not really all that musically inclined, and only have a barely tolerable voice when I sing. Still, I do like one line of a wall plaque says...I sing like there's noone there & have a fine time doing it.

“Seven Island Suite” was fantastic in those Gord gathering jams. That should be the group's signature song. Great energy!

Yes, I love to play GL's songs! I used to play them on guitar & piano many years ago, but recently I've been playing on my (borrowed) keyboard (with headphones ) while listening on my iPod, which has only his songs on it. Every day! I call it "jammin' with Gord"!
