Hi Jerry, Do you have any plans to add any Doors songs to your impressive list of songs? 2021 is the 50 year anniversary of Jim Morrison’s death in Paris. If so, I’d like to learn how to play “Love Her Madly”, “Riders On The Storm”, “Love Me Two Times”, and “The End”.

Hi Jerry, It’s the 50th anniversary year of Jim Morrison’s death in Paris and I’d like to request your version of three Doors’ songs. The songs are: 1) Love Her Madly, 2) Riders On the Storm, and 3) People Are Strange. If you have time for reading, I can recommend the book “Break On Through, the Life and Death of Jim Morrison” by James Riordan and Jerry Prochnicky. It’s a little over 500 pages but VERY entertaining. I bought it from Amazon. It’s the best book I’ve read in years!
I will if I can Alan.
The to-do list is pretty huge now.
Actually kinda surprised frosty the snowman isn’t here! I was looking to cheat a little. I wanna learn it on a different instrument but other people are not good at explaining to me exactly when the chords change so I was hoping to use your extraordinary pedagogical skill lmao
I’m very grateful for what you do!
