Origin: This song came while I was gardening at the beginning of the pandemic. I got very very into my garden that season! Particularly, starting seeds. The other parts just flowed naturally. It was so so fun to create!
Teaching notes: I LOVE to teach this song!! The "grow babies grow" part is just so much fun , always a great place to return to. I was surprised by the chords when I figured out what they were - they are a major I then a minor i - so it's the same chord, just major then minor (flating the 3rd). So when you layer the "grow babies grow" parts, point that out to everyone. I also really enjoy adding in the grow--- grow---- grow--- grow--- section. I use my guitar to emphasize to just release and sing your heart out! It's a descending chord progression with layered harmonies. It's suprisingly easy to teach.
