    The chord sheet I used had written 3 3 3 4 above the chords in the riff then 3 3 3 3 above the chords for the verse. So in the riff, I simply added an extra beat every fourth bar.

    The Wikipedia entry for the song commented that the harpsichord was sounding flat but it occurred to me later that the harpsichord could have been tuned to A=415 which is the pitch standard used by most performers who specialise in baroque music and is near enough a semitone below the standard concert pitch of A=440. It would certainly be quicker and easier to tune the guitar and bass down a semitone than to tune the harpsichord up. Just a thought.

    The original was interesting coming from a band whose background was very much punk. This was very different but very effective and the harpsichord had a mesmeric effect.

    Thanks for your kind words about my effort, btw.

    Greetings,

    Well this song captures the season and the way I feel this week. A beauty from Green Day called "Novacaine." Who doesn't love that stuff!



    Ciao

    PS: It's awful I warn you. As painful as a toothache.

    Hey y'all. Putting the thumbs up. Collabs welcome if my files are able to be tweaked. Who knows. Might happen. Ciao.

    A Berni Original for this week. The early verses are largely autobiographical, but the last verse is borrowed from the experience of an old friend of mine who lost his mind on LSD and spent time in a mental institution as a result. We knew there was something wrong when in the middle of an acid trip he turned to us and said: "I know now! You are all policemen!" - it was all downhill from then on

    I have tried to get a real late-Beatles feel to this one, helped by the excellent "Band in a Box" programme, which provides the backing here.

    Hope you enjoy it. It's a little bit longer than my usual stuff, but I hope you stick it out till the end.

    Okay. A day at work is done. Then two hours painting the deck (Mary, don't you know I have ukulele videos to watch???). Eleven more videos added to the playlist. That's 57 videos in less than 3 days. Now to do some watching.

    As always, please let me know if you don't see your video in the playlist. I make mistakes sometimes. My hope is that I have all the videos up to this point in the playlist.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    This is the second song that popped into my head. From The Beach Boys album Pet Sounds.

    Song #2 is the first song I thought of, The Ruling Class by Loose Fur. They are a side project of Jeff Tweedy and Glen Kotche (of Wilco) and Jim O'Rourke. Though Tweedy sings it fairly frequently at solo appearances, Kotche and O'Rourke wrote it.



    This was my way of coming down slowly from all the Wilco I played last Season. I didn't want to just go cold turkey.
