You can focus in on the rhythm guitar and follow Dudley Hill's foundation chord chunking, using his 1940 Epiphone Emperor in the title tune "Avalon".

When the Naps went to play in Philadelphia, Lajoie and Bernhard would go to nearby Atlantic City to help pass the time.  : The issue was finally resolved when the leagues made peace through the National Agreement in September 1903 (which also brought the formation of the World Series ).  :  : To begin the 1903 season, the club changed its name from the Bronchos to the Naps in honor of Lajoie after a readers' poll result was released by the Cleveland Press .  : (The team was officially the Blues in their inaugural AL season but changed to the Bronchos for the 1902 season.)  The Bronchos finished the season 77–63 and Lajoie finished his first full season with the club again the AL's batting champion with a .344 average.  He also led the league in slugging percentage (.518), finished second in doubles (41), third in RBIs (93) and tied for fifth in home runs (7).  In the off-season he contracted pleurisy .
