    Default Season #465 ~ 2nd Chances

    Hello and Happy New Year to everyone!

    Forgive me for posting so late. I lost track and thought I was hosting next week, which I was surprised to see does not have a host yet. Hopefully someone will step up and grab that slot. I generally tend to go with really broad themes, as I've found myself more than a few times wanting to participate in a season, but struggling to find something that fits the theme. And this week will again be really broad Here are a few ideas to get you started:

    1) The obvious starting point is to do songs that refer to getting a 2nd chance, taking advantage of a second chance etc. Maybe comparing experiences of innocence versus having more experience under your belt. Maybe being the one giving someone else a 2nd chance . . .

    2) Any song that mentions either 2nd or chance . . .

    3) I'm giving you a second chance to go back to 2020 and do any song you'd planned or wanted to do for any season but did not have the time to get it done. Here's a link to the seasons thread so you can review all the seasons from 2020: https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com...51#post2251251 . . .

    4) Original songs can be about the main theme here or any of the 52 Seasons from 2020 . . .

    The usual rules apply, but i'm always willing to bend the rules regarding instrument of choice to include tenor guitars, guitaleles, etc. No Song Limits. Feel free to ask if you're unsure about anything.

    Here's the playlist ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58uR...wJUviSb6GD44qU

    Ryan's " Birthday Honours" season is still going on through Sunday so hopefully he'll see some more submissions before his season comes to a close ~

    Thanks Brian! If you want to plan on doing that now, let's go with that. I'll do everything I can to make it next Saturday, but I'll likely have my hands full this week, so it would be great if you don't mind ~

    Great theme Kev! Can just about squeeze a song I wanted to do today in as well!
    "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"

    A lovely broad theme, Kev!
    "The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place" George Bernard Shaw

    This would have fitted a few seasons last year including 429, artists no longer with us.

    Thanks for the second chance for Christmas, Kevin! I changed the key of this to put a totally different spin on it.
