Rain Down (Delirious)

By Kenny & Tadeu

---------------------
I've received some negative feedback about some of the new contributors' posts. While the quality of the video recording may be lacking to some of you, please understand that these are their first posts. Firstly, the video quality may not be as good - I had to experiment with all sorts of angles and lighting to get it right. Also, playing in front of a camera, with the computer recording, can be quite a nervous experience - I experienced the same while playing for a large congregation, with video cameras and all, initially.

I do want to encourage the contributors to develop in the longer run, so that readers would benefit from faster request responses (and so that I have less work to do!), so please give them your support. I'll also probably have more joint posts, like this one, to keep the standard at a reasonable level.

------------------

Rain Down, by Delirious, is a pretty radio-friendly song. The first part (done by Tadeu, though I overdubbed his recording) comprises of notes plucked over an open D string - as an exercise, experiment with the notes that sound good with other open strings. There is actually no guitar part for the verse, but I've played the organ part on the guitar instead.
