Hello Christy and All,
A while ago my husband decided he wanted to learn the Uilleann pipes. Recently he’s done something serious about It , found a teacher and ordered a practice set from Brian Bigley. While he’s waiting for them he’s working on a thing like a vacuum cleaner without electricity. I’ve got this picture in my head. It’s the first page from a Step by step guide to learning the pipes. Step one, first catch your pipes. There’s a picture of a carefree set of pipes cantering round a field.
ps its a real dope who gets a key word wrong…’dopamine’ is the x factor in the brain,as per my previous rambling and spelling error…caffeine needed for mine!! D
Groundhog day may be looming,but the good folks manning Woody Guthroe’s website have unearthed a gem to raise the spirits…’Your smile cured me’…first up on http://www.woodyguthrie.org .Classic Woody back story too…what a guy-and his legacy is in good hands with family still very active…
Great point by Frankie-riffing on the sad songs…’dopemine’ is the magic brain zapper,apparently.Possibly not what my parents had in mind when they figured I was a ‘dope’ with music taking priority over school work ,but there may be a link..Gretchen Peters has mulled over the topic in articles and had a t shirt on her merch list-‘sad songs make me happy’…and.they do…
so,that’s Mr Cohen dominating today’s playlist in the bunker!
Hi there maestro
Dipping toes after a while. Life and all that. Can’t get Mandolin Mountain out of my head and if I’ve got it right it’s a 2 chord wonder ( at least it is now ) good to read the posts about Dylan’s new masterpiece. Nailed it again. I’m still always drawn to the ballads. I’ve heard many a shout out at a get together of ‘Frankie, don’t be playing any of your suicide FM shite’. My view is however, that the ballads and ‘sad songs’ help us to recognise our basic humanity and empathy to others. Anyway, enough of that. Keep on keeping on. Get back on the road soon we’re missing ya
God Bless. Frankie
I was at all the Athlone gigs. One more Bowman programme on LIam, so sad and evocative to hear his great music.
