Thread Name: Chord Req: Short Grass (Ian Tyson)
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Short Grass by Ian Tyson
Searched into here looking for Chords to "Short Grass". Glad to see there are so may fans of Ian and Sylvia still out there. There was a little club called the "Golden Bear" in Huntington Beach, CA that they used to come to a couple times a year in the early 1960's. At that time I was studying at Long Beach State and learning the guitar. Steve Gillette was a regular there too. Monte Dunn would appear with Ian and Sylvia. It was just an extraordinary experience to hear these great folks sing and play such wonderful music. I still can't listen to "Four Rode By" without practically having an out of body experience. I was very happy to see that Vanguard has preserved this music for future generations. I hope there is still a demand for it. That would give me hope. There is something about the sound of a big flattop acoustic guitar. I can't explain it but it has such power. The best to y'all.
