Thread Name: Rick Fielding and his music remembered
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding and his music remembered
Many of you are no doubt familiar with the on-line song archive "chordie". This is a great resource, with an emphasis on providing musicians with lyrics, chords and tablature for popular, traditional, blues, etc songs. As such, I see it as an online part of the folk process. Many musicians that I know use it on a regular basis.
The point is, there are no Rick Fielding songs there. As a sort of tribute to Rick, I am submitting one of his songs with lyrics and chords, so that others can more easily learn them. I'm also suggesting that others here who admired Rick and his music do the same. What's more, someone who is familiar with his history might start an entry on Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia which welcome contributions from all donors. Chordie can be accessed here. Once on the page, click "resources" to submit a song.
