Subject: What you workin on? Eh?
From: GUEST,Abdul The Bul Bul on his laptop

Well, I seem to have cracked Jamaican Farewell and after 3 years Harry Appleblossom is on the list and for the first time in I can't remember how long, I don't have a 'work in progress'?
(I'm not counting the ones I'm learning on the bouzouki because I've only had it a few months and the whole thing is a work in progress).
Was having a shower after the evening dip in the pool (one advantage of a year in Dubai) and was wondering what you lot were working on.
Can you tell or is it a secret?

Just completed a video of three polkas on guitar and mandolin, a video of Louis A. Hirsch's "The Love Nest" as a string trio (guitar, tenor guitar & mandolin), and I'm now idly looking through the dots for Bechet's "Petite Fleur". Folk one day, old jazz the next!

I'm working on "Boots of Spanish Leather" and "Green Grow the Rashes". Both are songs I've been meaning to learn for a long time.

I am learning some 14th century words (which I have translated into modern English) with an old sounding tune that was actually written in the 1980s (I think) by John Fleagle: Blow, Northern Wind. And an unusual version of Seeds Of Love I got from a friend (who is the subject of another thread).

I am trying to go to bed regularly before the wife's alarm goes off at 6.30am
so I can wake up in time to get some sunlight in the afternoons..
Its either going to involve tying her arms and legs together
and blocking her mouth with a handkerchief,
or separate bedrooms.

We've been together for 1/4 of a century and now the onset of her menopause
is starting to wreak havoc on my body clock.

On the other hand I may as well make the most of my solitary nocturnal lifestyle
and catch up on recording my long delayed 1st solo CD.

Can't say I enjoy wearing closed back headphones for 8 hour shifts though..

The Streams of Bunclody, an interesting song I chanced to notice in O'Neill's Music of Ireland. At first it seems pedestrian, but then it seems to have more and more to offer.

I've been steadily updating the modes tutorial on my website with more examples. And playing the flute more, since the aerobic effort of a high-volume low-pressure instrument helps in cardiac recovery. The saxophone is not a good idea at the moment.

"Green Grow the Rashes." Mary? I hate them rashes. They itch like crazy, but I've never had green ones, thank God. :-)

I'm mostly working on songs I alreay know but haven't done for a long time. I'm splitting a concert with my friend Susan Trump on Nov. 14 in Springfield, Mass and Ed Brown wants to hear my "oldies."
At the same time, I'm working on a new song I just started writing yesterday, and have been doing a lot of writing for a second book. I'm also getting set up to start recording a new CD around the end of this year or more likely, slopping over into 2010.

Spreading myself far too thin. Mainly working out versions of "Sam Hall' and 'Rounding the Horn' on the 5-string banjo in double-C tuning.

Also on a version of 'Cumberland Gap' (from Alec Slater's modal banjo book), in which I'm trying to add some lyrics about the A-road north of Carlisle that the UK's cumberland gap has now been appended to.

Also trying to mix and master an album's worth of my own songs - I'm doing a weekly evening course at the City Lit in London about mixing and mastering (taught by Andy Diagram from James, The The and the Diagram Bros).

I really could do with being made redundant. I hate my job, badly need some extra time, and could probably just about subsist on freelance work and a generous redundancy package for about a year.

Well, when I'm not reading Mudcat, I'm trying to learn to play John Lennon's 'If I Fell' on my Maccann (I do like a challenge). It seems to work best in F, which puts the funny intro into E (did I say I like a challenge?).
