    Belgium???? Well ... I know they eat horses (I think!) Whatever ... that sounds absolutely DISGUSTING!!!! (There is a rather unpleasant French sausage, called "andouillette" which is composed of similar "nasties" and tastes rather like mothballs - although it's usually served with a mustard sauce, which makes it edible. It gives you terrible indigestion afterwards, though.) I am sure Gina will put us right!

    I think "Belgium" might be a particularly Australian type of processed meat. Apparently Baloney is an American variant of Mortadella if that helps.

    OK. Getting away from these Offal sausages. I can't remember what they called it but I seem to remember having one in Lyon once. My hosts said it was basically tripe but made to look like a sausage. If I remember, it didn't taste too bad.

    Here's my second entry. A Fiery Johnny Cash song with tempo contrast and lots of harmonica to provide extra contrast. The fire effect came from some free to download green screen animations I found on You Tube.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Apologies for lowering the tone, Geoff! And REALLY sorry, Elena ... Gina started it! Just to clarify the issues for those such as myself who are curious, the photos below will explain all. (And Baloney is far more refined than what Jon described; I knew Gina wouldn't eat anything that disgusting! Andouillettes, on the other hand, are just as repellent as Jon suggested.)

    most excellent version of that song, Geoff.
    and that photograph almost made baloney look edible.
    seriously, that's 18 dollar a kg sliced ham where I come from.
    that baloney impersonation is baloney!!!
    I'll take a kg of MK anytime thanks :P

    Default SOTU 312: CONTRAST - "IN THE PINES" Performed by Dennis & Evelyn Danner

    "In The Pines" is a song best known from Huddie Ledbetter's (Lead Belly) early recording and covered in recent years by Nirvana. The lyrics are a dialog between a man and a woman but being sung only by the male. I contrasted playing style for the two voices by using a picking pattern for the male dialog and a strummed accompaniment to the female voice's refrain.

    Changing between picking and strumming is something I have long struggled with, and this Season's theme presented an excellent opportunity to address this difficulty. The solution for me proved to be the same as always: slow down the tempo, count the timing, and practice, practice, practice.

    I hope you like our version of this classic.

    My Third and final entry for the Season , I've kept moderately simple with the contrast in this song , basically doing a partially muted strum through the verses and mainly fingerpicking in the chorus.
    Thanks for Hosting Elena, it's been good to participate in the Season.



    Happy Ukeing

    This is definitely not an entry, I gave up the will to live with it !!
    When you just can't get the lyrics right even when you've read them for the hundreth time ............

    It seems everyone's trying to play the ukulele like someone else............the only real way is your own way.
