Re: Ray Charles

Hi dmc - I see you've been registered for a while, but this is your first post, so welcome to the Chordie Forum!

Neither of these songs were Ray Charles' originals, so searching by songs, you may find other versions here, but here's a few links I found elsewhere:

Re: Ray Charles

Hello dmc & welcome to chordie!

Hi topdown - - - you just beat me to it . . .
Here is what I was able to locate:

Georgia on My Mind [by Hoagy Carmichael]
http://www.911tabs.com/link/?4511377
Also, there are 2 tab versions of 'Georgia' here on chordie indexed under Hoagy Carmichael.

Here is a fan site with tons of info on Ray Charles's music and influences . . .
A Song For You (lyrics) [By Leon Russell!]
http://www.thepeaches.com/music/raychar … ForYou.htm

A Song For You (lyrics & chords) [Right here in Chordie!  Indexed under Leon Russell]
http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/www.r … u-crd.html

Hope this helps, dmc - - these are both magnificent songs!

Re: Ray Charles

James - Too funny, we seem to bump into each other often.  Man - I just love Ray Charles - Have the box set and listen to it often. Few singers put their whole soul into their music the way RC does. You don't just hear it, you feeeel it.

Anyway - That was great Russ, I LMAO.

But the best thing about this thread is that guitar guy link I found while searching for dmc's request. There are a ton of very cool old songs on that site.

Re: Ray Charles

hey, thousand fanx guys!! I did wonder if Ray Charles did the originals and if not, who did?

'Hit the road' (so basic chord structure but so many variations to play it!)was the first continuous vinyl I played as a kid given by an uncle who used to get ex duke box discs. Dunno why it's taken me so long to find the others to play! Messing about on you tube for more styles to play by him last night and found a gold mine!

Many thanks, right, lets go and surf for the tunes smile
