Thread: Season 441: "What's My Line?"

    Hi Val, wasn't planning anything but when I'd finished doing this as a lesson for a friend it dawned on me that sculptors and potion makers are professions.
    I still think this is his best song, hopefully I haven't totally murdered it.

    A (kind of novelty) song about a blacksmith from 1961 - "Sepa jutustus" (The Blacksmith's Tale) by Ülo Halling and Arved Haug. In Estonian.

    And - apropos of nothing - here is the French lesson for today.

    In France, a heatwave is strangely called a "canicule." This is of Latin derivation and apparently comes from the arrival of the Dog Star (Canis Majoris) in the sky, which heralds summer and the start of hot weather. And, when you are overcome with the heat you can be said to "transpire comme un boeuf" (sweat like a bullock) ... although I am sure I only ever perspire gently! Now you know!
    And in English, "Dog Days" is the time of sultry weather in July and August.

    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

    And that is, of course, true, Geoff!

    One more, perhaps poorly aged, tune before I switch over to hosting duties late tonight/early tomorrow.

I just don’t like how it turned out. :-( Heading back into ‘the studio’ to try again today...or, maybe I’ll just bag that song and try to go for another one. ;-)

    So many awesome entries this week, Val — what a fab season! — xoxo

    I used it in a song about summer I wrote last year, thanks to a suggestion from my daughter.

    I wasn't sure If I'd get a second done this week but I found a little time to record this song I wrote some time ago about weather forecasters. I've tried a little slide ukulele, the ukulele is tuned to open C.
