Gavin's First Song



So, I have this second-hand guitar, a total beater, that we have strung and sitting on a stand in the living room. Gavin loves to take it down and strum it. It's a full size guitar, so he basically stands up and plays it like an upright bass most of the time. Or, he'll sit with it on the couch and crank out some noise. Yesterday he wrote he first original composition, complete with chords that we hashed out together. Here it is, chord chart and all:

Animals Go Around Town
words and music by Gavin Leo
composed 7/17/10

D...............A
Animals go around town
D..................A
Animals drive around town
D...........................A
And they pick up a toy dragon
D............................A
And they pick up a toy spinning wheel
D...................................A
And they drive around in a toy pick-up truck
D..............A
Animals go around town
D.................A......D
Animals drive around town


Ladies and gentlemen, your future headliner at the 2021 Newport Folk Festival.



Also, today was Gavin's first ever treat from the ice cream truck:



Cotton Candy Swirl!!!

Ivy just kicked it in the swing....
