    It's still your birthday for a couple more hours here in Oregon, Ryan -- happy belated birthday to you in the UK!

    I can only admit that I was going to say the same thing as Ralph. Here on the left coast of the US it's still your birthday. All the best wishes Ryan, and thanks for hosting.

    I had messed about with this for Brian's recent Season about Justice, but when I saw the theme for this Season I decided to pocket it for a couple of days. By the One And Only Ray Davies, who writes songs so nice he made the list twice...



    I only knew this one because it was included in the bonus tracks of my re-issue version of The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society. I think it's also on the Kink Kronikles...

    Well day 1 was an absolute treat. Big thanks in particular to Lynda, Loftur and Ralf for making a few throwaway songs of mine way better than they had any right to be.

    Looking forward to seeing what today brings!

    (thanks again to those who have sent birthday wishes too)

    Hello, Ryan ... still battling the elements here! Does anyone fancy helping me clear the driveway and start the car, which has been sitting under a blanket of snow for the past week? Anyway, just managed to get this done. I've never been that keen on Bob Hope, but I've always liked this song ... and since Hope was awarded an honorary knighthood in 1998 at the age of 94, it fits the bill.

    Song by Sir Paul McCartney with a distinctive Scottish flavour in C tuning with a low g gives the possibility of a drone effect similar to the bagpipe

    Here's one from me. Never done a Beatles song before and I have to say I prefer John's stuff to Paul's but this is one of my favourite McCartney ones.

    Treated myself to a mic and a 2-channel USB interface over Christmas. Still playing around and figuring out how to get the most out of it but I can already hear an improvement to my sound. Really need to work on the framing on my videos though.

    Happy (slighty belated) birthday Ryan, and Happy New Year to all.

    My first thought of a musical knight or dame was Sir Paul McCartney. Then my second thought was that that was too obvious, and my third and most important thought was: who cares because Paul McCartney is great .

    This one, from 1993, feels appropriate right now, especially with us about to go into another lockdown here in Scotland. Stay safe everyone!

    "Your Sister Can't Twist (but she can Rock and Roll)"
    by Sir Elton John and found on the double album " Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. "

    The site wouldn't publish the rather long post explaining what the
    banjo is doing in this. Berni Barablanca pointed out the problem I was using the "pound sterling" ign and the site didn't like it. Much like as a cat doesn't like it when the frigde motor changes tone !!


    so to say gain. Applying a little licence to the term "baritone". To be honest I get the arseache with playing the ukelele these days as I believe that over fifty years exposure entitles me . And when I started in the days of black and White there wasn't the array of choice that there is today. A staunch fan and user of the soprano I have dipped a toe in the water of most sizes but what I now would like to try is a baritone sized banjolele.....Gold Tone do such a mother ,but at over *400 quid (yikes ) I want to try one first.

    As we can't go and visit the shops thanks to some virus or other I thought that I would adapt one of my tenor banjos and try it out. So tuned with a low D and a titanium nylon hybrid (I have no clue ) top E from a classical guitar set and two aquila classical banjo nylgut strings left over from some other Frankenuke experiment carried out at Schloss CeeJay I have removed the reso and we see what we will see.
    I would be interested in what you think of the sound.

    Cheers.




    *Thanks Berni
