YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE FIRST RECORDING USING THE (G) SONGSHEET! On BUG JAM night, we'll do it in D if I'm leading it. I haven't decided yet whether to put in arrows in the instrumentals, but what it would be is on the first G and G7 to play DuDuD counting 1 + 2 + 3.

The Spencer Davis Group were a British band formed in Birmingham in 1963 by Spencer Davis (guitar), brothers Steve Winwood (vocals, keyboards) and Muff Winwood (bass guitar), and Pete York (drums). Their best known songs include the UK number ones "Somebody Help Me" and "Keep on Running" (both written by reggae musician Jackie Edwards), "I'm a Man" and "Gimme Some Lovin'", which reached #2 in the UK and #7 in the US. Both "I'm A Man" and "Gimme Some Lovin'" sold over one million copies, and were awarded gold record status. "Gimme Some Lovin'" was changed up slightly for the U.S. market. These tracks proved to be their two best-known successes, especially in the U.S. (where they had signed to United Artists).
