Hey There Delilah

May 19th, 2011

Last night I accompanied my son Ethan as he sang, “Hey There Delilah” at his middle school concert.  (Please note how the guitar covers the mid sectional at just the exact most troubling areas.  I think I will wear it with everything from now on.)  I would also like to point out that ‘Hey There Delilah’ had exactly zero chords with which I was familiar.  Instead, it had seven weird chords and one of them was a bar chord which are super hard to do and I can’t believe I pulled it off.  It took me three weeks to master the song, but I finally got it down.  Now I just want to play “Hey There Delilah” over and over again until my fingers bleed.  It’s a fun little tune to play.

Mike said that Ethan sounded like Harry Connick Junior when he sang, but then again, he is the boy’s father and although not prone to exaggerated accolades, he also does not have what I would call an  – unbiased perspective.   I continue to believe that Ethan sings like an angel… metaphorically speaking of course.
