Sugar Dumpling Sam Cooke
One of my favourite Sam Cooke songs. This is my interpretation of the song and I play it
with a similar strumming technique to that on Wonderful World, also by Sam Cooke.
I play it with the capo on the 3rd, but that's just because I like singing it at that pitch.
Any suggestions for change are welcomed! Otherwise, enjoy. The song isn't too difficult
and an absolute belter to sing along too.
