    Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers - what a song! Iíve added in some synth strings and vocal harmonies. Thanks so much for hosting Mikkel!

    Just heard this song and was so taken by the alone-ness of it. Hobo's Lullaby by Goebel Leon Reeves, made famous by Woody Guthrie and covered by many other artists. I played it on my 1950s Martin soprano.



    Just learned this song will be played on the radio in June. Two friends of mine host a monthly ukulele radio show on a little local station. Been a discussion guest before but this is the first time they will play one of my songs.

    There is also the Scottish Small Pipes. Much smaller and quieter than the Great Highland Pipe (which is also played by the Irish, btw). They did fall out of regular use at one point and have been revived in more recent times.

These have three drones which hang over your forearm and are usually tuned either in C or G and are also monstrously loud)
    Kathryn Tickell had a Gallician Piper as a guest at a concert I was at some years ago and you're right, they're seriously loud. Some regions of France have traditional pipes which are pretty loud.

    Sometimes people seek out solitude as this wonderful Graeme Miles song says.

    I think I've used this song before but this is a new recording made just yesterday.

    This is a song by The New Pornographers about being there for a loved one who's trying to come out of a deep depression.

    During the quarantine, I've been bingeing the anime "Bleach". I just saw one of the bad guys say this:
