    this, a hangover original song from last week.
    i played Joko's random song generator a 2nd time and it threw me back this:
    I AM marco polo WHO laughs AT going to church.
    wtf? this happened on new year's eve (comfort or forewarnings...)



    MARCO POLO

    If I was Marco Polo, I would walk that great Silk Road
    And if Jesus walked on water, what I sight we would behold
    And if Lazarus was breathing, would he laugh or cry
    with a heart that's beating, and ponder how or why?

    Oh, the water's turned to wine
    Oh, I guess it's drowning time
    just like an angel's crime

    If I picked a daisy, he'd give you a whole bunch
    If I wrote you down a haiku, he'd have a sonnet before lunch

    Oh, Marco was a travelling man
    Oh, Jesus held him in His hand
    just like this drowning man

    So tell me all your stories, of China and the East
    And I'll tell you my stories, of the angel and the beast
    Everyone's a weary traveller, on that long road home
    And though the gate is narrow, you'll never walk alone

    And oh, the water's turned to wine
    Oh, every sip's a sign
    I guess it's laughing time

    Bossanova is hard!

    My late entry for week 379. An instrumental, and it may not sound too distinguishable, if you squint your ears a bit, you'll hear how the ukes and the beat align. I recorded no video while making it, so I had to pull up random old stuff.

    If you can't listen to the whole thing, skip to the end. There's something cool in the back.

    Hello again, Rick! I wanted to do a Harry Nilsson song for Linda's (Turtledrum's) "Hats off to Harry" Season, as I knew that he was a fan of Nilsson (as I am), but I never got round to it. So, herewith, from his album, "A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night" ...

    I recorded the video a few weeks before Christmas but I couldn't post it because the uke was a present for someone. That's why the instruction book is hanging from the uke.

    I had really hoped to get something done for 408/Tiny Desk Concert series but it didn't quite work out.

    I had watched a few of the tiny desk concerts and had some ideas. Anyway, I had another look and found Scottish Folk singer/songwriter Karine Polwart did a set. This song didn't come from her set but is one she wrote that I learnt over 10 years ago at a folk music workshop at the Sage in Gateshead. In the days before I had a ukulele even.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing
