Would you Like to Play the Guitar?


  1. Oh, thank you for that! It was a delight. I needed cheering up, especially since my lovely old Pirate dog just trekked something in all over the carpet that .. was not mud. LOL!

  2. What a lovely Blog you have! I will bookmark it and return as I can!

  3. Very good posting as always.

  4. You turned me on to Fretkillr around Christmas and I spent too much time poking around and enjoying his enormous talents (strumming, picking, fretting, singing, and playing the harp). He's also a nice guy. If you contact him he writes back. The tune you picked has been an earworm all day: stuck in my ear.

    Warning: Don't listen to Fretkillr's "Up a Lazy River" unless you're completely immune to earworms.

  5. Oh Jay. How did you get it out? :-(

    Thank you e. Welcome! Come back again!

    Thanks Alden.

    Dan - 'earworm' - what a fantastic word! I've been humming 'Would you like... etc' for about a week now. Yesterday N. said to me 'Please, please Mum, learn the rest of it! I'm sick of you singing just the first line!'
    'Up a Lazy River' sounds the perfect song for the post I've presently writing!
    PS How did you contact him? I didn't think he responds on the comment area... but maybe I didn't look properly.
