Subject: RE: Chord Req: Brother Can You Spare a Dime
Paul Downes and Phil Beer introduced me to this song back in the seventies. Simon Mayor used to know some serious jazz chords to it. He is mainly known as a mandoline virtuoso these days, but he was always a mighty guitarist too. If Simon still lives in the Reading area, you may be able to meet him Terry.
I have always wanted to hear the version by Al Bowley, which I think was the best known in its day.
