He then said he would like to try a native folk song to be played in the Key of G. Testing out the chord of G, C and D7 with him, he did that number with very great emotion. All of us enjoyed that soulful tune very much.

This song has a very catchy beat too and in no time at all, everyone was clapping to the wonderful rhythm of the tune.
