We’re Going To Be Friends

One of my hobbies is to play the guitar. I have not done it much in the past three years because my creative energies have gone into bellydance, but lately, certain guitary songs have been in my head so much that I looked them up on the Internet to find the chords. The White Stripes “We’re Going To Be Friends” is particularly stuck in my brain, so I decided to record it and then YouTube it, and send it to my parents who are in California and missing me (and I them). I might as well share it with you, too, but don’t laugh at my voice! And Happy New Year!


Hi Susan,
I enjoyed that! I’m glad to see you playing your guitar again. Happy New Year!

You might like Jack Johnson’s version. The White Stripes version sounds very Beatlesque. If I didn’t know better, I would say it is orginally a Beatles song. The chords seem to really mimic a Beatles song I can’t remember which.

That was very sweet. Did not realize you played left handed.

I will get the Jack Johnson one; very psyched to hear it, I love him!

Guy Rude: I didn’t know either! I do chords with left, strum with right (?)! Does that mean I “play left-handed?”
