The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

EdmundFitzgeraldJuly 6, 2023: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot in the member's section.

This will take you five minutes to learn it, but with 28 verses it'll take a week to play it. I set the MP3 to play only one of the repeats. Go listen to this on YouTube first and then after it's finally done six hours later, listen to the MP3 here on the site. Here's a chance to try bending notes and making them wiggly on the intro and outro. Don't be in a rush to play this at tempo. Make the sounds clean and weird. It's basically in D minor (G minor for baritone), but it's presented here in C major (or G major for baritone) to help you focus on the exotic sounds just as good ole Gordy did. There's a funny scene in Seinfeld when Elaine can't keep Edmund straight from Gordon. Jerry helps her out.
