Songbook one basic engl

  1. 1. 2
  2. 2. PROLOGUEW hen my interest in the music played on the radio changed from“being listened” to “being sung” I can say my resources to do so were very limited. They consisted of a one way portable record player in the livingroom of my home, some old 45 RPM records,some spiral notebook and a pencil with an eraser on top. On the otherhand, my knowledge of the English language was very incipient, makingmy task something a lot more difficult. Nevertheless, at the age of seven,there seems to be no obstacles in our way, so I started to sing some of thesongs that my heroes (The Beatles) sang, no matter I had to make up thewords I didn’t understand from the lyrics. Today, more than forty yearsaway from that time, I still sing, my heroes are now a lot more artists, Iperform some of their hits on my piano or with my guitar and I havecomposed some of my own songs in English. This anecdote about how Istarted in music has inspired me to publish this SONGBOOK. Manypeople at my presentations have asked me for the lyrics of some of thesongs I sing. This is my way of fulfilling their request and also to offerthose who like this kind of music, a resource that hopefully willencourage them to sing along. ULISES TROYO 3
