    It is one of the many Beatles songs I play, and one of songs I actually dare to (try to) sing. (Capo on the third fret, for anyone who would like to try it.)

    @Arianne

    Thanks. That last one could be my wife’s comment.

    “Maybe the reason I quit singing in the shower is that all the songs I know by heart are at least a decade or more old”
    The reason I’ve stopped singing in the shower is that age has throttled my singing voice. Otherwise, I have no compunction about singing golden oldies from the ’40’s and ’50’s, as well as standards from Gilbert and Sullivan, Mozart, what-have-you. Let ’er rip!

    Well, I know all the words to all of them! (And not the silly music-hall version of Mandalay: look up the whole poem by Kipling, and sing it to “Waltzing Matilda”.)

    Minnesota multitasking: getting in touch with your roots by memorizing ‘Norwegian Wood’ while ice fishing.

    I don’t know songs 1 and 3 but I do know all the words to “Your Cheating Heart” .. wonder what that says about me?

    thebird55: Never mind fretting, just give me the key and I will fake it on trombone. Like Gokie5, my voice shows signs of not being used.

    This way Arlo doesn’t have to pay royalties.

    @hippogriff

    Now I’m officially embarrassed. When I picked up my guitar I realized the capo goes on the second fret. (So muck for memory.) I’m not sure what key it is, but it starts out in E.

    @thebird55

    Should be second fret. Play D, sound E.

    @K M

    Yeah, I realized that this evening when I went to play it. (See my last post.) I blame old age. (That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it.)
