As you noted in another thread, "Rocky Mountain Way" is an easy one. Popped my lead vocal cherry on that one.
We're a blues/rock band. When I started with this band 5+ years ago, I could barely sing backup. With practice, anything is possible, but I still tend to stick to songs with pretty simple/repetitive bass lines, and also try to avoid the "story" songs (eg.- Dylan) so its fairly easy for my prone to senior moments brain to remember the words. I'm actually to the point of wanting to take voice lessons, and contacted a local instructor just the other day. My 10 year old daughter and I are signing up for together (she has way more God given ability than me). Should be loads of fun!
I also sing lead on:
Ball and a Biscuit- White Stripes
Goin Down South - North Mississippi Allstars
Wang Dan Doodle- Howlin Wolf
Next Time you See Me - Junior Parker
West LA Fadeaway- Grateful Dead
Don't Ease Me In - Grateful Dead
Let Yourself Go - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
I'd Love to Be a Hippy - Champion Jack Dupree
Roadhouse Blues - The Doors
Me and My Uncle - John Phillips
