Well, this has received a reasonable reaction on my facebook, so I may as well show it to my lovely followers too. Just for god's sake nobody upload it to youtube, and don't watch it if you're a musician.
I have really wanted a banjolele for ages, but they're very expensive
and the only one in the family is an heirloom on Paul's side so is going
nowhere. My stepdad runs a music shop so I can get a banjolele, but
figured I should learn on something cheap before spending a lot of money
on an instrument - I have a tendency to pick things up and make a good
start, then abandon them.
So I bought the cheapest ukulele possible, and taught myself to play six
chords on it in two hours this evening. My fingers hurt. I've also
never sung in my life, not even in front of my boyfriend of
four-and-a-half years, so I'm jumping in at the deep end here. Hopefully
I'll get better at both singing and playing over the next few months.
Enough stalling anyway... here you go, Astro Zombies by The Misfits.
