Hi!

I hope you are all well in this terrible time.

I ordered a little ukulele to bring at work with me and received it very quickly.

The first thing I did was learn a few chords and try to record.

It’s not good enough to share, though, yet...

Nothing new but here's one from December, 2017. I was a huge fan of Roy Clark on "Hee Haw" and one running bit was a series of skits featuring Roy as the proprietor of the "Empty Arms Hotel." Here's an example:

Here then is my original, "The Empty Arms Hotel," dedicated to Roy:

Thanks for your kind words. I hope you'll grace us with another submission of your own soon. These days the VOM needs all the help it can get and we can all use more music in our lives.

I tried to change my mind last evening but could not play any instrument. I lost my 15 yo cat to cancer yesterday afternoon. At least, listening to music, reading or writing about music and instruments helped me change my mind a bit. We get so atrached to these little pawls, it's tough when they leave!  Thank's for your songs, people of the VOM1T. It's good for my mood!

Added voice to ukulele first day, first chords learned... (beware!!)

 

Recording quality is not good... (Integrated mic of Ipod or Ipad).

Hello everyone.

When I started the VOM I had good intentions to record something new but was seduced by the lovely (very unseasonable!) sunny weather here in the UK all last week so did lots of work in the garden.

So here is an old one: 

As Tears Go By by Jagger and Richards

Great to see you Deep, Cats and Misha - some great contributions.

Misha - you have a most beautiful voice. You must participate in every VOM - that is an order.

Misha - That was lovely. Well played and you have a very nice voice. My only criticism is that it was much too short.
Garthman - Well done. Mick and Keith would approve.

Garthman, I’m back at home after work. I could not listen to your clip at the office but I found your song and your voice very soothing! It’s worth gold during these crazy and beyond belief days!

Thanks. Glad you like it. Like some of my other originals it literally took years to come together. I had the basic verse for years and then came up with the chorus but I couldn't figure how both fit in the same song. It had to sit and ferment for more years until it all made some semblance of sense.

Late to the party. This is a short ditty played on a Yamaha classical guitar that was modified to accept 0.010 gauge set steel strings. Howard (garthman) suggested I experiment with the concept to shortcut what might be a long search for a 12 fret guitar that meets my preferences. So, without much hesitation, I proceeded to sharpen the tools and effect what is now a very decent 12-fret guitar. Thanks again for the push, Howard. I'm late this VOM1T because I had to heal the tip of my left index finger after a bout with a sharp wood chisel, which also abbreviated the playing of this piece. Thanks.

Edit: The ringtone you hear in the beginning is an incoming text on my new cell phone. I'm on the grid!

Idunno - Well done as usual. It was worth the wait, for sure. Sorry to hear about your latest injury.

BTW, I thought of you the other day. I was browsing on CraigsList and saw a Larrivée SD40 12 fret dread for sale.

A lot better late than never, Joe. Excellent playing and the guitars sounds very good. 

Glad to have been of help.
