The Lighthouse and the Whaler

I recently discovered y'all's music and absolutely love every second of it! I'm just beginning to learn to play guitar and I can't wait to be able to play some of your songs, especially Venice (although it sounds fairly difficult for my skill level). Looking forward to hearing more of your music and hopefully (fingers crossed) coming to one of your shows in May!

Hey Lucy, I like L that is cool. :) Also, Thanks for discovering and listening to our music. I am excited for you to play guitar. I teach guitar lessons myself. My advice is to make a version of Venice up all on your own. (Get into the instrument creatively right from the start and you will learn the most that way.) True story the whole song (Venice) is 3 chords.... F C G. Just learn those and you might be able to run with an acoustic version for it. And...Please come to one of our shows in May and please hello as well. We love meeting cool people.

p.s We are about to release a couple new versions of Venice. One that does have a new chord change. We change to F C Em in the bridge....still super easy right? Don't tell anyone about this, ...but check out the new version which is coming soon. Blessings Lucy :)
