    Nico's "60/40" for banjo ukulele with singing, with baritone ukulele "drums", Ashbory Ubass, and stylophone-controlled synthesizer.
    Nico sings this very low; I sing it uncomfortably high.



    cheers Del and Lynda!

    Morning!

    Cheers for the co-hostiness!

    I've been gifted a day off (on the same day that pubs re-open!? What were the chances...) so I've taken the opportunity to play probably my favourite VU song for Lynda's half of the season.
    Del, I'll think of something suitable for you over a couple of pints later...

    Cheers!

    This is a good one that I never realized was so very easy to play!

    Ahoy all - hope this account works...
    Here is a song that fits the criteria, I believe.

    I did a high song, so here's a low one. I promise I'll try to do an underground one for Lynda too later this week! This was written by Ralph McTell for a friend who was in an emotionally low place, reminding us that perhaps our problems aren't so bad after all.

    I've been wanting to try this one for a while. Ever since I saw an interview with Ralph McTell where he explained the background, then said there were a thousand covers on youtube, all of them awful. Well, sorry Ralph, that just made me want to make it a thousand and one! And I still think it's a great song, even if all of us amateurs are ruining it...



    I've been moving my gadgets around again and fiddling about with settings, in the hope that technology can make these videos sound better. If it doesn't, I'll have to resort to practising more, but, pfft, who has time for that...

    Bonsoir, Lynda and Del! This is a song for Del's half of the week as it is concerned with looking up into the sky, which is where rainbows are generally found ... I also thought the general tone was optimistic, which also fitted with the "up" theme. Actually, I have to confess, I'd never heard it before yesterday - for some reason, we never got into "The Muppets" - but it is really sweet!

    Hello, Del and Lynda! Thanks for hosting and for the great themes! Here is one that mentions high and low especially for you. I really love the Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell version of this song.

    Hi Del and Lynda!

    I’ll get a high one in here eventually, but here’s a JJ Cale low one. Just your basic three-chord shuffle ...

    Here was my first thought for Del's part of the theme. Apart from the obvious metaphors in the title and lyrics, the main appeal of this song is the duelling solos between Flea and Dave Navarro at the end, which I've tried to replicate here.

    "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"

    Another great day on the season, really wonderful songs, everything's been such a pleasure to listen to, thank you to everyone bringing all this good stuff! Lovely Del is looking after the playlist for the both of us which is really kind of him. If you don't see a comment from me on your video as the week goes on, please give me a shout via PM, I don't want to miss anything!
