    This is somewhat experimental and I did not play the entire song - I just wanted to have some fun after a week of being back to teaching.

    There is a 40 sec preamble and then I try and play a part of a 140bpm grime song on the uke


    Some great stuff today, hopefully see what Del's been working on later!

    No, I don't know why I thought this was a good idea either. At least I didn't try the accent or I'd have made Dick Van Dyke sound like a native Londoner.

    I'd have practised it a bit more first but I'm still on good terms with my neighbours and I'd prefer to keep it that way .

    I was hoping to use Ryan's generous "Any Song You Like for Songwriters" offer to record a few oldies that I have written that never seemed to fit a theme. But I just didn't get time. The Holiday Season here in Catalonia doesn't end until the night of the 6th (Kings' Day).

    Then, yesterday, I was lying awake in the middle of the night, very comfortable, lying on my back, but, as always, totally unable to drop off to sleep in that relaxing position. Suddenly, the lyrics of this song started forming in my mind and I worked out the chorus in my head before using a phone as a torch and jotting it down on the pad I keep by my bedside. The next morning I fleshed it out and in the evening improved my primitive melody with an even more primitive one. Then recorded it this morning and edited it this afternoon.

    Please let me know in the comments section of the video if you are a fellow sufferer from this "affliction"... or one of the lucky ones who have this "super power".

    Hope you enjoy

    A cacophonous underpractised offering of one of
    Sir EL Tees early (and in my humble opinion best era )
    songs, from "Honky Chateau " comes "Honky Cat" .

    I should probably be done for animal cruelty !!

    So... this is a Sir George Ivan Morrison (that’s Van Morrison to you and me!) track and is one of my favourite feel-good songs of all time, and I’ve no idea why I haven’t tried it before. Bari uke, tenor uke, some keyboard stuff and rhythms and a little bit of vocal harmony. In spite of how it may look in the vid, I enjoyed myself more with this one than possibly any other cover I have ever attempted! Cheers Ryan!

    Happy New Year Ryan, thanks for hosting! Between the holidays and a couple of projects i've got going on, it's been a while since I have been able to make time to participate. Here's a quick take of the Bee Gee's cover To Love Somebody, written by Barry Gibb. Cheers ~

    Talk less, play more . . . .
