    Default Season 127 - Stories!



    Stories! If you were to read the lyrics of the song it would tell a story from start to finish. So, each song you post would be a complete short story. Here are some examples to help you understand what I am talking about: Cat's in the Cradle, Taxi, Hurricane, Atlantic City, Puff the Magic Dragon, Coward of the County, Thunder Road, Scenes From an Italian Restaurant, Ballad of Billy the Kid, Devil Went Down to Georgia, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. These are just examples to give you an understanding of what the Season is about.

    As usual, don't post until 12:01 am Hawaii time on July 20. Standard rules for the Season apply with one minor exception. If you aren't sure if a song fits there is no need to ask. Just do it as I will not turn away anyone.

    Three songs per person. No bonuses. Ukulele front and center. Multi-tracking or not is ok - whatever you would like to do. Should be a new video for this week and say Season 127 somewhere.

    As for prizes I'm still thinking about it. However, I know that for this Season I'll be doing a drawing so everyone will have a chance to win.

    Dug deep in my songbooks for this one. I never played it before so will likely be put up in a few days. Lots of things to learn. The song is simple but this will be the first time singing since grade school. Also the first vid where I will do editing and such(also my first seasons entry.)

    My 4 year old will be jacked - One of his favorite kids song tells a little story. Great theme!

    Great! Most English folk songs tell a story.

    Now, let's think... hmm...

    Chevy Chase. Only 76 verses. That should do. Might need to leave a few out.

    Maybe not but I shall definitely have to do a Child Ballad.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Question: cuss words? The songs that come to mind for this theme are a bit dirty. Anyone going to pop a vein if I sing them?

    I'm gonna have to be smart here and not use up my three songs today..... Because I have loads I could do. Loads.

    Great theme Fred.

    I'm about 15 minutes early but it's not often I get a chance to get in first and do a song I already know how to play.

    This is by the Raconteurs. The original builds up absolutely brilliantly, hopefully I've managed to capture some of that here.
