    before the beatles were in the beatles, three of them were in the quarrymen - a skiffle group. here's one of their songs. i hope it's skiffle-y enough??? wiki tells me it's skiffle, blues, AND rock and roll

    Singing harmonies takes a special skill. Some folks can just do it
    without thinking and never hit a bum note. To do it for four voices
    is a special acheivement. Does it come naturally to you or did you have
    to learn how to do it?
    I grew up singing this kind of of stuff in church. I've also had a lot of training on it. Thanks!
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    While grousing about how hard it would be to play a skiffle song this week, Melissa asked me what skiffle is. “Kinda Jazz Folk fusion played on found objects, homemade stuff...”
    “You made an ukulele...at least that is part of it right?”
    Right. I built this Uke in my garage right after I started playing back in 2010. I made the resonator out of a tart pan and the pickups are phone piezo’s dipped in 8 coats of tool dip, sandwiched in beer bottle caps and then mounted on 1/8” walnut. No plans- just lots of man cave time, and I don’t play it enough so here we go.

    That is a fine sounding instrument, It has a great ringing tone to it.
    That was a very good recording for being done outside. No traffic
    noises, or the wind blowing through the mike, which are the bane of my
    life when I try to do an outside recording.

    Perhaps jug band music and skiffle have a lot in common in that both were
    played on found objects. With skiffle the two most prominent found object
    "instruments" were the sewing thimble to play the washboard as a percusive
    instrument, and the one stringed bass made from a tea chest and broomstick
    and on the more sophisticated versions a curtain ring was used to slide up and
    down the pole to produce different notes.

    Remember the old days of SOTU when bonus points were given for
    the showing of bare knees... you just won yourself some extra points
    there BEV.

    That is an interesting song... sort of DO-WAP feel to it. I remember when
    you started playing the UKE you had a very unique style... you only played
    upstrokes... do you remember those day... those were the days my friend.
    I think you brought some of that style back for this song.

    Another fine medley you've got us into :-)

    Is that the Doug Frink Uke? It is sounding clean and sweet.
    You are becoming quite the instrumentalist.

    lol!!!!!!! yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-ha! with summer definitely feeling like it's here, start notching up those bare knee bonus points for me right now, people!!!!!!! (actually, very often i go and put some longs on before i start recording a vid, just to spare people my pale, paler than pale, and really rather knobbly knees, however sometimes it's just too hot to do that!!!!)

    ah yes, the old upstrokes - those were the days, my friend. we thought they'd never end. we'd sing and dance (and uke) forever and a day

    thank you rob!!

    And by Calypso I mean I paid attention to how I was strumming, put on a funny voice, and added some rudimentary accompaniment on a pink Hello Kitty keyboard that we rescued from a charity shop years ago.
    In honour of our host I also ****ed about with some video effects until the post-processed video skipped a bit.
    This is about 2 hours work. I even lit a candle because the lighting in my living room is rubbish
    Looks like Miss Louden has sparked a revolution when she talked about her new
    editing software. It is is nice to see people stepping out of their comfort zone
    and not only producing good music but also tweeking the visuals to go with it.
    It adds another layer to the skill set, and also generates atmosphere.

    The usual trouble is the static camera and if the eye can be distracted away
    from that by visual means then it usually adds to the video experiance.
    I have noted that Jon and Joo will film each other and the camera will move around
    Sometimes they will just illustrate a song... another layer to the creative process
    and Turtledrum will often use photos to accompany a song... and when done well
    it adds new depth and dimension to a song.

    One last thing I loved the Hello Kitty touch... now if you had found it whilst skip diving
    that would have been just perfect, since it encapsulates the ethos of making music with
    found objects. Speaking of which Arcade Fire do a wonderful job of playing a glossy magazine
    and an elevator wall... there might even be some Kitty in there.

    I think it will be a toss up between Midnight Special and Worried man blues for the Skiffle
    theme song of the week. Great Sing along song
