Thanks Gene. And I stole every note of the bass line from Scarlett Johannson's version. Check it out.

Impressive list!
And I see a few originals in there as well. Have you shared those here? I guess I will have to go back and have a look. Many of these songs were very popular in America, but I didn't realize there was such an international appeal. Do many folks recognize them in the places you play? I guess they go over well, since you spend time working on them. I am curious how you choose a song to add to your repertoire? I didn't intend to ask so many questions when I began this. Sorry.

I have really enjoyed each video you have shared with us.

Mike

Oh yes, quite a lot of them are very popular over here.

First of all, it has to be a song I like, which means mainly lyrics I can relate to in one way or another. It also has to be more or less popular. Then I download a tab and begin playing it in a very simple way. When I'm familiar with the chords, I begin to twist the arrangement in order to make the song more "mine" but still recognizable. Since I'm not a very good instrumentist, it would be a mistake trying to emulate the original version.
