Oxford Band Practice — August 2012 Meeting

August 14th, 2012 by Graham Newton

OK — Marcus has stupidly bravely allowed me to update the website.

So the meeting is at the usual venue at 7pm on Tuesday, 21st August.

After some discussion and a bit of unilateral decision making we have three songs:-

Knocking on Heaven’s Door Guns ‘n’ Roses style.

Rock and Roll from the truly great Led Zeppelin Vol IV album. The album cover was infamous for not having any identifying text.

And finally Rockin in the Free World by Neil Young. ¬†Apparently the song title came from a friend of Neil’s who upon observing the Stars and Stripes being burned in Iran said that he thought they should stick to rocking in the free world. Slightly ironically the song is anti Bush (senior).

Now I have to attempt inserting the pictures and videos.

See you there — Graham.

Oxford Band Practice – October Meeting

October 11th, 2011 by Marcus Povey

Right! October’s Oxford Band Practice will be at our usual venue on the 25th October.

We will be doing the following three two songs to start with, and as ever we have the option to revisit old favourites!

Here are the songs, as usual TAB can be found on our songs page.

I hope to see y’all there!

“Johnny B Goode” by Chuck Berry

“Like a Hurricane” by Neil Young

UPDATED: Because “Green Machine” is using a non-standard tuning, we’re opting to drop this song for now.
