Thread Name: Teach me to Yodel
Subject: RE: Teach me to Yodel
The thing about yodeling is that it is an attempt to use the voice as a musical instrument, rather than to communicate language, the way we usually do. So get used to the idea.

I was in an upscale barbecue joint recently and heard a reocording of Steve Goodman doing a song with some yodeling. It was a delightful change from the ubiquitous commercial Kountry music.
