    This song has a doctor in the chorus, it should fit the theme!

    My closet seems to be missing simple necessities such as a washboard, but two instruments are plenty difficult for me :-)

    Ohana SK30M mahogany super-soprano, Cort UKEBWCOP Blackwood concert, Anuenue African Mahogany Tenor, Fluke Koa Tenor, Hora M1176 spruce Tenor

    Greetings,

    Miss you all. Can’t make the season but will be back soon. Life has become overcomplicated and I had to take a break. On the plus side I did get a poem published in NJ Library collection.

    ciao

    My second this week is a tune played on tenor recorder with accompaniment on tenor ukulele.

    Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) was an Irish Harper and composer. He was the son of a blacksmith and went blind at the age of 18 as the result of an illness. His father's landlord's wife payed for him to be taught to play harp so he could earn a living and he made his living as an itinerant musician playing for the proprietors of the great houses in the West of Ireland. By all accounts, his peers did not rate his playing all that highly but he found he had a flair for composition which compensated for his indifferent playing and he's left behind a body of music that's still played today.

    Many of his tunes are dedicated to his patrons and their families and the titles are preceded by "Planxty" which indicates they are in honour of the person named.

    The story is told that O'Carolan, feeling poorly, went to a physician and was told to stop drinking, which he did. Not improving, after some little time he went to a Patron's physician, John Stafford, who told O'Carolan the other physician was an idiot and he should at once recommence drinking to his capacity. Apparently they immediately repaired to the good Doctor's rooms where they drank several bottles of excellent whisky and in honour of which occasion O'Carolan wrote this tune.

    I'm never sure how to classify the theme of this song: romance? biohazard? artistic joy/frustration? all of the above?
    In any case, here is Ben Lee's "Catch my disease" - a collaboration with Mr RAB11 who brought the excellent riffs and harmonies (cheers Ryan!).

    Here’s my Thornton Rule stretch entry.

    Not all doctors are medical of course, and this one mentions the less immediately useful in a disaster kind several times. The tune is Pretty Baby, which was a musical number for a stage show originally penned and performed in something like 1914. Later made famous (rejuvenated?) by Dean Martin in the 1950’s.



    History removed due to wrist slap. PM me if it's that important...

    Ahoy again
    I was playing around with a C#m chord this morning when I realized that it sort of fit the riff to the Cypress Hill song 'Dr. Greenthumb'
    Since I mostly knew the words to it I decided to give it a try.
    So here is another ukulele hip-hop cover (a little expletive but not profane)
