I Wish I Knew Where the Door is.

And there are some people that bring music from other places...

Do you get the feeling that this person is playing directly at you?

I would really, really like to play this with somebody. What a rapport these two have.

Had a tooth out this morning so I just feel like a big baby. It's been on Ben Nevis, In Brazil, Bahrain, The States, Canada, Switzerland, Italy, France, Britain, Ireland, Up the Alps, on a glacier, in hot air balloons. It once helped sing songs in a "Snow White" pantomime. Yes, yes, the one where the dwarves were taller than me. It met Prince Andrew who wore far too much cologne.It's been on trains and planes and boats and bikes. I feel quite sorry that it's landed up in a dustbin somewhere. I wonder what the new one will be like?

Woweeee Zoweee

The Yamaha Guitarlele arrived today!!! It's absolutely beautiful. I can't believe it was 57 euros minus VAT and eight euros delivery charge from Lille in France. Mahogany, spruce and rosewood and what a sound it has. I'm going to love it to bits.
Here's what it can sound like. Not me playing obviously.

Cool Cat

I'm really trying to draw an owl but all sorts of other creatures keep making an entrance.
I'm waiting for the Yamaha G1 to arrive. I see it's left France, arrived in a town near Barcelona where it has been since Thursday. Spain is closed at the moment.
My cheapie guitar is tuned to CGDGBD at the moment and it makes everything sound Celtic.
Tooth coming out this week so I am in major wimp mode.
