I’ve been listening to a lot of 60s British Beat/Mod/R&B music lately. My momentary fixation is largely due to the fact that I’ve been taking guitar lessons since July and I’m attracted to the idea that a lot of these bands were at the beginning of their musical development. It’s great music but it’s not necessarily virtuoso, which makes it less intimidating to me. I can picture a time where I could comfortably play many of these songs!
So, I’ve made a mix. You should listen to it. I tried to focus on bands and songs that were big in England but didn’t quite breakthrough in America. There are exceptions to that strategy, so don’t complain about The Byrds song.
