Tracy and I Start Rehearsing Together

I first met Tracy Ginn at the Phoenix Cultural Centre earlier in the year. She’s a singer and was performing solo to backing tracks.

On one visit to the Phoenix, she asked me to accompany her on guitar, and gave me a few song sheets with chords on. I agreed and we performed ‘Smooth Operator’ ( the Sade song). She also gave me the chords for Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ – a song I’d obviously heard before but never attempted to play. We performed this together the next time I was at the Phoenix.

I think Tracy would agree that she was a little lacking in confidence when performing to start with, but I recognised that she had quite a good voice.

So after the summer we started practising together on an occasional basis – with the idea that I would back her at the Phoenix, and other open mic nights.

So far our bunch of songs is small:

  • Smooth Operator
  • Someone Like You
  • Valerie
  • Price Tag

We’ll hopefully be growing our set list over time.
