Heart Of Gold - Live
1 Heart Of Gold

Sultans of String releases Heart of Gold (Live) By NEIL YOUNG (Silver Fiddle Music) on Nov. 12, on Neil Young's Birthday!! This song has a lot of meaning to SOS leader Chris McKhool. He grew up in a classic music loving house. His mother was a piano teacher and all the kids from the neighbourhood would come to their living room for lesson. McKhool's first instrument was classical violin, which was amazing for ear training. He was even in a string orchestra called the National Capital String Academy, and loved it. But by the time he was a teenager, violin was kind of a square instrument, and when he got to high school he had learned enough about music already that he could teach himself how to play guitar and bought his first steel string guitar from Steve's Music in Ottawa where he grew up. A plywood model by Yamaha. Heart of Gold by Neil Young was the very first song he learned on it.
