Harry doesn't do Tom's voice, does wonderful interpretations in Dutch and French.


I really enjoy and appreciate that about Harry. He doesn't try to sound like Tom, but just sings in his own natural voice, and he always sounds so warm and sincere. :)

yeah, I loved those vids you posted, surf!

Me, I'm playing around with 'the devil and the deep blue sea' - after having fun with it on my new tenor uke (birthday gift!), I found out it's fun to play on the guitar as well. Having a lot of nice uke -> guitar / guitar -> uke experiments/experiences now that I upped the size of my uke.

Getting a 60's parlour guitar now (Kay K1160)*, for cabin trips and other trips and good times in general (might get it this weekend, if not, by Xmas - a friend of mine living in NY is picking it up for me :D) - excited to see which melodies are hiding in it. 'Be different sounds coming out of it than from my SJ-100 for sure (still, nut width is the same - nice :) )

[* my friend will be trying it out some before purchasing. But they had a lot of other parlours as well, quite a few Stellas etc, so he'll definately bring one over - and with the price level difference on guitars between the states and norway, I could sell it with a profit if we're not compatible] [that's what I tell the naysayers to shut them up, anyway]

One of the best friends I have EVER had, who is witty and intelligent and amazing and absolutely just an incredible human being, just self-released her debut album. It. Is. Incredible.

Even if she wasn't my best friend, I would absolutely LOVE it. Nick Cave and Tom fans, CHECK. IT. OUT.

For real. It is PHENOMENAL, and I am SO lucky and fortunate to have this woman in my life. She deserves the utmost recognition for her talent and gorgeous soul.

That is madness. Wish I were playing something to report. I never pick up an instrument anymore it seems. Maybe I should make a resolution :megaphone:

:?: You're 1 of the musicians ? :mrgreen:
This thread gives musicians amongst us to share what they are playing at the moment. (not listening to).

No worry's. just an info I'm passing on... :whistle:

Oh, P.S. If you really are playing it. Can we hear ?

Still in the blues, still a lot to learn.
But I think I have evolved a little since my last posted piece.
