    Here's an old vid of me on guitar and my friend Gretchen on banjo uke. I seldom play my beloved Gibson guitar anymore since I've been uking in the Seasons. Only so much time in the day...

    Well, I play piano and guitar...but both have been ignored since I started playing the uke. It is what is it. I don't have any videos playing piano or guitar, yet. But I have seen videos floating around on YouTube of my high school marching band's performance when we won State in 1993. You can't see me up close, but I'm in there playing the trombone. If anyone is interested in seeing a good marching band, I'm sure I could find the link and post it, here. Just let me know...

    Our dad was a very skillful cellist. Ivan (the T) has dad's cello and does play (although very reluctantly).
    I love this song and pressured him into giving it a go when we got together for mum's birthday last year.

    I wrote this song on the same occasion as the previously posted cello vid with Ivan's cello playing in mind. We actually performed an instrumental (cello and bari uke) version at mum's party and it went down real well. Cha and pa played a couple of songs too.
    I did this version as my first recording of my (newly purchased) chromatic harmonica playing.

    This thread is great! I just bought a guitar (guitalele ... I am selling my big guitar), but of course I am too busy uking to ever pick it up. But, hey, if I get to make video for you all ... that might just get me to play it. After I finish the 17 Seasons videos I'm already working on .....

    Never mind the email the whistle arrived this lunch time so I spent a chunk of this evening getting used to it playing through some of my favourite slow airs. I'll make a vid with it sometime soon.

    Oh! and I forgot to add that I have an electronic keyboard which I occasionally use. More recently for the built in accompaniments which are not too bad and certainly useable.

    Default My Cartoon Punk Band from my guitar days

    ..So, about 8 or so years ago when I was still teaching, I collaborated with the art teacher in my school and we created a Flash Cartoon website. It was about a group of wacky kids in elementary school. The art teacher did all of the art work, we both animated for the site, and I provided all of the voices and music and writing. Since I have always been way too self conscious to perform anything publicly, I got to live out my dream of being in a punk band through this website. I had one of the kids be a poser punk rocker with his own band in this school. They were called the Time Out Kids. He faked a Brit accent even though he was from Cleveland. Anyway, we made some silly cartoons and there was to be a song featured in each episode. I wrote way more content than we ever finished, but after I wrote the 1st song thru this character, I couldn't stop and I wrote like 12 songs in a week. No videos, but if you wanna have a listen, here they are:

    Keep in mind they are from the perspective of an elementary school boy.

    Ashoken Farewell sounds really great on the Cello, Brian. I reckon it would work on your chromatic harp too. I played a chromatic for a time but didn't bother it getting it fixed when the reeds blew out. I prefer the basic 10 hole vampers.
