Neal Paisley - Gossip

Bluesy fingerpicking with a nice swing...


YouTube Channel: nealpaisley
Tip from Neal on playing the song: "It's a pretty simple 'A' progression, easy once you get the right hand to cooperate."


This performance was suggested by Allison R from the fleamarket bulletin board.

It's a classic, and a joke, and you can play it on a ukulele - everyone wins!

Every version of this song is so different that I had a hard time picking just one.

Jon Brion, a personal favorite, is one of the most interesting musicians working today, both as a performer and a producer.  Based on the web server stats for her last video, sweetafton23 is one of your favorites.

Dominator makes some of the best tabs for ukulele, and his step by step instructions for this great song are fantastic.




Any man with the gumption to rhyme "beer" with "see her" (say it like Marge Gunderson "be-er") deserves to win the MacArthur Genius Grant.  Jacob allows you to download all three of his excellent album from his website for free.   My personal favorite song is brains, brains.
