Thanksgivingtime

by John Riggio

This song is available as a single.

John Riggio is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to matters of the heart. When we asked him to write a song for Thanksgiving, it was a natural. The tune is unison, simple and heartfelt. It is easy to learn and has a wonderful message that will touch your students and any audience that might hear it.

If you use the cassette, you will have the pleasure of hearing four layers of acoustic guitar, one of mandolin and one of a rather tasteful electric guitar doing the solo answers to each phrase. (Yes, this is the same guy who played the scream guitar in the first song.) But, even if you don't have the tape, this tune will work well with just piano, too.
