Thread Name: Yodeling...how to get started
Subject: RE: Yodeling...how to get started
Wow! this thread takes me back to when I was a Frank Ifield Fan -
OK I feel good that I admit it now!
When I first heard "I remember you-OO" I was knocked out.
Incidently it had a very similar mouth organ intro as "Love me do" which was being played in Radio Luxemburg at the same time, I believe that this was the first Beatles single - I wonder whatever happened to them!
Anyway Frank went on to do "She Taught Me To Yodele" and I was hooked.
All through my colledge days I was trying to get the "Glottle Break"
I now can do a reasonable version of Lovesick Blues but I still think that Frank was a great yodeler.
Who mentioned Cathy Fink! I met her in Glasgow once and sadly lost touch. Her version of "I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry" catches up with
Hank's deffinitive one! ( Any contacts please PM me)
