Links to YouTube Clips - Level 1-3 songs

Here are some links to music clips I've found on You Tube to help you learn the tunes on this site. The songs in the clips may not be exactly the same version or key as my song sheet, but if you listen you'll get the tune and the idea of the rhythm etc. Some clips may show a guitar player so you can see the strumming pattern.

Rock My Soul _ Oh, Rock My Soul - Peter, Paul & Mary

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tdq4iilT-Js&feature=related

This is a live version of this old song. It's the one I base my version on. They sing it in E, so if you want to play along, put your capo on the 2nd fret if you are playing the D and A7 chords (or you could play E and B7).

Mockingbird_ Hush, Little Baby - Sherri Huffman

www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxQzJweGS2c&feature=related

This is a lovely, slow recording; pretty close to the version I sing. She sings in D, so you can easily play along, using the D and A7 chords (Level 1).

Tom Dooley - the Brothers Four

www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFtEK3Ixnac&feature=fvwrel

This version is quite close to mine; same tune and similar words. It's in the key of G, so you can't easily use a capo with the D chords (you'd have to put the capo on the 6th fret- awkward...). If you want to play along to this recording, you'll need to play G and D7 instead of D and A7.

Clementine _Oh, My Darling Clementine - Freddy Quinn

www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqZgyX0sUnQ&feature=related

This is a very old recording, but it's pretty close to the version I sing. The tune is the same; just some of the words vary. He sings in E, so if you want to sing along, using the D and A7 chords (Level 1), put your capo on the 2nd fret to bring the key up to E. If you want to actually play in the same key as the recording, you can , use E and B7 as the chords.

 When the Stars Begin to Fall (My Lord, What a Morning)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfsoA_2Mhckdazbluey

This is the Seekers version of this lovely song; this is the version that I've based my song sheet on. The Seekers are performing this in Eb, so put your capo on the first fret if you want to sing along.

 The Lion Sleeps Tonight

www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LBmUwi6mEoFLORENCOM

This is the Tokens version of this great song; this is the version that I've based my song sheet on. The Tokens are performing this in F, so put your capo on the 3rd fret if you want to sing along.

 The Streets of Laredo

www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFulyDP9UlY&feature=related

This clip has been uploaded by 'Oldtimevoice'. He has good, clear vocals, a very tuneful voice and a karaoke-style backing. It's in the key of D, so if you want to play along, you'd have to change the chords from G and D7 to D and A7 (so it's very easy to play).

the Lord of the Dance

www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XiyGZTvC9I&feature=related

This is a very enjoyable version by Tommy Makem with whistle, banjo etc. It's very close to my version. Once again, it's in the key of D, so if you want to play along, you'd have to change the chords from G and D7 to D and A7 (so it's very easy to play). After each chorus, go to A7 and back to D.

Down in the Valley

www.youtube.com/watch?v=GucC_Zbyw1o

This is an old but good version by the Browns, with lovely harmony. It's very close to my version. Unfortunately you'll have to change the chords if you want to play along. It's in the key of E, so you'd have to change the chords from G and D7 to E and B7, or to make it very easy, play D and A7 with a capo on the 1st fret.
