KTGC has gone from being one of my least liked albums to being amongst my favourites.   Such a beautiful album!   :)

Always liked it, but like you this is now a huge favourite...

12th - 18th century
The 1930s
The 1950s

:)

With regards KTGC, I'd also say the 1960's with the Shadows and especially Hanks 'Strat' sound which by the early 60's had that well known sound to it which MK liked and is evident on this album!!

That's true. A good example is the song We Can Get Wild.

"We'll be on our own Billy Fury on the gramophone...

Billy Fury recorded in the 1960s

Brilliant...

Wow, this man sounded almost like every 50s and 60s artist. He had songs that sound like Elvis, The Everly Brothers, The Beatles ;D

It's "Lions" time! Can't say I never tried to include this song before in the catalogue, but the time was right, and I know this is a desirable song. But! It was HARD, Caps Lock hard, and I mean it. Hard to learn, hard to record, hard everything. The simplest songs for me to do is the ones with simple and clear guitar parts, but here, guitars go all over the place. So I had to make my own version of the song, largely based on the real deal. Not the first time it happens, but I can't see how else I can include a song like this. The song is very strange and unusual, but that's exactly why we love it. Anyway, I hope you like my take on it. Pavel.



P.S. Guess what... I forgot to discuss the little part in the end when, before going to G to A section, it switches to Bm7 and F#m7 instead of Bm and F#m, making this part more gentle and sweet. You see, even after sitting on the song for so long, I still can find things to discuss. And I'm not even discussing solos in my videos and anything else. I've got enough to work with haha!

Thank you! Yes, after doing it for so long you, I became accustomed to it and my playing seems to get better, but every new song is a completely new set of obstacles. Each time is like the first time, especially recording.

Damn you nailed not only the song, but captured the whole atmosphere of it. Kid me not, you're a pro?  ;)

Haha! And you guys captured exactly my goal for all my videos and "Lions" in particular. I want to capture the atmosphere of the song. Often it means just to replay what Mark already played. Like many of his songs are because the song was already finished even before he recorded it. But sometimes I need to be more creative. With that said, that "Lions" rhythm is actually in the song, I just don't know whether Mark played the bass notes on the record. If I had the master I would know.

And no, I'm definitely not a Pro. If I'd be a Pro, you won't see my videos at all because I would be busy doing "Pro" stuff. Because I'm not a pro, I can afford to do whatever I want, without any stress and schedules. So I'm happy I'm not a professional musician or a teacher for that matter.

I'm on a roll now probably thanks to my supporters on Patreon. It's not a lot of money at all, but it puts just enough pressure on me that I shall keep going. Just the idea of having a "contract" with my audience makes me want to work harder. And as somebody said, "working for free is a sin."

All the links are on my website, and YES, I have a website: https://mksongbook.com/support

In fact, I have had it at least for 3 years or maybe even more. I just thought it's fun and convenient to have everything in one place, and also to have an eye on my progress. As you can see, I almost entirely missed Privateering, and Tracker, and Roadrunning for whatever reason, but I almost completely covered Shangri-La. It's fun! And shows just how many incredible songs are on their way to my channel. I've done 71 songs already, that's including 23 out of 60 Dire Straits songs and 48 MK Solo songs. That's not a lot, but on the other hand, that's 15 HOURS worth of lessons.
