This will stop soon, I promise! :)
Yes - it‘s another original instrumental! Slower, synth piano, strings and bass. Give it time - it builds.

I wrote and posted this as an instrumental piece only yesterday (see above) - which is all it was at that stage. Then today I asked the glorious Liz Brinker if she could write and sing some lyrics for it. Just a few hours later and wow - did she deliver in abundance here! Her words and her voice utterly transformed this into something very special!
Thank you Liz!

Another new song
We’re in Spring



It stopped snowing again

The grass is growing again

And it needs mowing again

I’m seeing green



Get out the old John Deere

I really like it here

When it’s becoming clear

That we’re in Spring



Do do do



Up come the daffodils

I’m getting tulip thrills

And hear the sparrows trill

A pair of doves coo



Time to get bicyclin’

See everybody pedallin’

Nature is revelin’

Everything is renewed



Do do do



It stopped snowing again

The grass is growing again

And it needs mowing again

I’m seeing green



Get out the old John Deere

I really like it here

When it’s becoming clear

That we’re in Spring

Trying out my new cajon. I think it will be easier to record and more suitable accompaniment for my ukes than a full drum kit.

My first attempt at a Baroque guitar piece. I have restrung my guitar to a reentrant tuning. Drop D with strings 4-6 an octave higher. It’s like a large Baritone Uke with low and high 4th strings in separate places.

I posted this original song here a few days ago as an instrumental, but took it down when I realised it needed some lyrics and something extra. I hope this works a little better now.

I submitted a collab with myself to SOTU 522, but the balance between the instruments is poor. I decided to upload the flute video separately.
I've always been very disappointed with the sound of my flutes in recordings, so I'm trying another room and maybe also devices to see which sound samples are best.

Here's Turlough O'Carolan's Planxty Fanny Power on my Yamaha flute.
