    Just a little partial finger style melody for y’all to learn to add to this lonely song, “The Streets of Laredo”.

    Several weeks ago I was looking out at the Ashokan reservoir, strumming my ukulele and wrote this song. It was a moment of solitude as we were just a few weeks into the quarantine. I put the song away and thought it’s really not very good. But I played it for some friends at a Zoom open mic, and it seemed well received enough. This week’s theme seems perfect for this song so I sang it today and put this video together. Not perfect but few things are.

    For Season 432, the theme is "Solitude". Here's "Solitude" by Duke Ellington (I tried to stick with the theme, but that's as close as I could get ; )
    For tenor ukulele with whistling

    Not an entry, but a throwback from five years ago for Season 135. Thought this would fit this week’s theme

    Any chance to play The Ink Spots is an excellent theme for a season in my opinion.

    Can you imagine trying to practice the bagpipes in secret?

    Am I not right in thinking that there are such things as Spanish bagpipes, Berni? (Mikel ... you are going to wish you had never mentioned bagpipes!)

    When you start to learn the bagpipes they give you a small instrument called the chanter so you can practice the fingering of the tunes, and I suppose this is how they practised in secret
