    Thanks Keith. I think my wife's on the mend and I'm feeling better. I really enjoyed the medieval music day yesterday. Some interesting and enjoyable music.

    Remember if you want to do your entry in Mbuti, it must be a complex polyrhythmic myxodorian harmony played on old tin cans retrieved from a Landfill site in East Ham on a foggy Wednesday in December.

    I tweaked and changed it some, but this is a version of a train song medley Boxcar Willie did on a regular basis. I used to hear him sing it on the Grand Ole Opry, and it always got a great response, and I always liked hearing it. He was such a crowd pleaser anyways, but I always noticed people were singing and clapping along during this. If I ever got brave enough to attempt a nursing home gig, or something of that ilk, this would probably be a good medley to do. This was my third take on this, not close to perfect I know, but I kept this one.

    You're absolutely right about people knowing perhaps the first verse and the chorus, I remember being surprised at how few lyrics to songs I actually knew when I first tried singing a couple of years ago.
    Should be a fun theme Geoff, doubt I'll have time to do anything, busy week, but I will try.

    This is a medley I use all the time It is especially good to use at the end of Workshops for Novice Ukulele players. Please join in, in the Key of C.

    Just so happens I'll be performing at only my second open mic night in three years here in Yangon this week. I'd meant to save it until later, but given this week's theme, I think I can push it forward.
