This song is about I plant a grew in my 10-feet-square backyard in the Leeds inner city. I put the seeds in a tiny tub, but it grew like a Roald Dahl story until it took over the whole yard, then one day the sun shone extra hard and 100 flowers all went “Pop!”. It was amazing, so I wrote a song for it.

If you have any questions about the song, or the guitar playing just ask!

The video was made at The Northern Film School by the wonderful person that is Danielle Millea and her awesome colleague Owen Plummer http://www.northernfilmschool.co.uk/

Jon Gomm – Telepathy

Song, Album and Guitar Tab from: http://jongomm.com/store

iTunes: http://bit.ly/iT-Gomm Amazon UK: http://bit.ly/gomm-UK
Amazon US: http://amzn.to/19VPgIu

The Guitar Tab isn’t just Tab, there’s extensive performance notes – it’s basically an instruction manual for how to play this song. 🙂

This is the first single from my new album Secrets Nobody Keeps, released today.

Telepathy is dedicated to anyone who’s been so afflicted with doubts and fears that it affects the way they interact with people and ends up in the nightmare of insomnia. The moral of the story is a simple one: Never go to bed on an argument. (Don’t, FFS.)

It’s played on Wilma, my beloved Lowden O12C guitar, in A E B E G B tuning, using my custom super-heavy Newtone strings and Keith banjo pegs, with a Fishman Rare Earth Blend running through various Boss effects pedals and a Trace Acoustic TA200 amp.

Lyrics:

Say, say what you want,
Cos I, I can’t read your mind,
Please, please teach me Telepathy.

I can’t get to sleep,
My thoughts are my enemies,
They sing to me
A carousel song
Revolving around my head,
With what you said…

I’m so tired but so awake,
Solutions come but much too late.

Say, say what you want,
Cos I, I can’t read your mind,
Please, please teach me Telepathy.

I’d die for your sins,
We both cry in sympathy
With our cruelty,
And nobody wins,
But I lose more expertly,
So you turn and flee…

The saints come marching in,
I sing myself to sleep again.

Say, say what you want,
Cos I, I can’t read your mind,
Please, please teach me Telepathy.

I can’t get to sleep, my songbird captivity,
Oh sing to me!

Jon Gomm – Wukan Motorcycle Kid

Song, Album and Guitar Tab from: http://jongomm.com/store (order now for Xmas!)

(The guitar tab has full super-detailed performance notes to help you learn the song.)

This is the 2nd single from my new album, Secrets Nobody Keeps.

I wrote this piece for playing on tour in China earlier this year. I needed something to bridge the musical gap between what I do and what most people over there are more familiar with. And also I wanted to have something with some meaning, some relevant purpose. So this tune is about the Wukan Uprising of 2011.

Wukan is a village in rural China. The government seized some farmland, owned by local families, and sold it off to developers. The local people weren’t too happy about that, so they held a peaceful sit-in protest. Sadly the government sent in the scary secret police guys, who arrested one of the protest leaders (a local craftsman and father), and he died the next day in police custody from “a heart attack”.

His name was Xue Jinbo, and he died 2 years ago today.

After that the protests got more vigorous and the police were rounding people up off the streets at night. When I saw it on the TV news, they were interviewing this kid who’d been riding round the village at night on his little motorbike, looking out for secret police down back alleys. And if he saw one, he’d shout a warning to the other villagers through his megaphone, then speed off, with bullets whistling past his ears.

So this song is for that courageous kid, wherever he is.

This event was all over the news around the world, everywhere except China. So I told this story on stage every night on tour there. Which resulted in all manner of sh*t happening to me.

It’s played on Wilma, my beloved Lowden O12C guitar, in A E C E G C tuning, using my custom super-heavy Newtone strings, with a Fishman Rare Earth Blend running through various Boss effects pedals and a Trace Acoustic TA200 amp.
