    I thought it had two k's. I kept seeing other people spell it with one, so like a good sheep, I fell in line with the rest of the group
    Talk less, play more . . . .

    Let's see if I get the right video this time.

    Solitude needn't be a negative thing, of course. Here my protagonist is just enjoying his own company and swinging in his hammock.

    This song was written at FAWM back in February. Our very own "Pabrizzer" is also a FAWMer and he did a lovely "noodle" that I just couldn't resist putting words to. So here is our collaboration. If I knew how to download youtube videos (of persons other than myself) I'd have set up a video of Brian playing and me singing. He plays this much better than I do. Next time, perhaps.

    COULD OUR HOST PLEASE REMOVE PUNCTUATION BLUES FROM THE PLAYLIST. THAT WAS FOR 431.

    Hope you enjoy this little ditty:

    There are various Iberian Bagpipes - the most famous being the Galician Pipes (normally a single drone and tuned in "C" almost as loud as the Highland). And my favourite name for bagpipes - the Catalan "Sac de Gemecs" (Literally the Bag of Groans). These have three drones which hang over your forearm and are usually tuned either in C or G and are also monstrously loud)

    Elvis grew up with blues and tis is one of his early hits which is basically a blues progression

    As I linked to the wrong video the other day. I hope that adding another video today is not breaking the rule of "one a day".

    This second song was written from a female point of view and is about how many women are not allowed solitude by pesky guys trying to get off with them and being insistent about it.
    Can't a lass have a quiet drink alone without being muscled in on by medallion men (or their modern equivalent)?

    When I wrote this I didn't know it was to have a completely diferent reading a mere few weeks later as "social distancing" became the norm.

    Hope you enjoy:

    Here's a White Stripes one I haven't played for a while.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Shouting Into a Tin Can EP on Soundcloud now!

    I'm working on something else but it isn't going particularly well, to be honest. So in the meantime, here's a fairly impromptu version of this classic from Love.
