    Yeah, bunnyf, you've got a pretty wide spread there. I guess it keeps one from getting bored that way. I mostly sing folk and hymns and gospel. I like to play blues a lot, but I don't care for the words. I usually whistle my blues. I like Celtic music too, but I usually fingerpick it or play it on one of my flutes.

    Anyway, I'm glad I got back to singing. It fills a gap in my music.

    Rock and Folk for me. (50s - 70s mostly) Gospel is verboten except for the non word version of Amazing Grace. I'm a card carrying atheist/nihilist and misanthrope and could get in a lot of trouble.

    Well, Icelander, to each his own, I guess. I'm not religious in the regular, church going sense. Gospel music is a lot of fun to play and sing, and hymns bring back many fond memories of better times.

    I think everyone likes Amazing Grace.

    I can sing, but as yet can't play the Uke (I had my first lesson today), so it will be interesting to see how interesting it will be to combine the two.

    When I first started playin' the Uke I planned to accompany my singin'. But lately, I don't sing any more. I got so wrapped up in fingerpickin' (a little) and Clawhammer and, now, banjo rolls, that I kinda let chording songs slide.

    My main trouble is that I like learning stuff more than I like singin' and playin'. I guess that's why I play so many instruments and why I have so many different books. I could easily be a professional student. I even seriously considered returning to college for a music degree of some kind. I figured that I might be able to play in the marching band too (HaHa).

    Well, now I gotta get back to singin'. Watch out neighbors and plug up your ears!
