Here's the scoop! I've got some time on my hands and hundreds of old songs that I strum on my 12 string and try to sing. I thought I'd challenge myself and see how I might get some of them in some format onto the Internet. That means learning to work with programs (apps) like Roxio, Vimeo, Moovly, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Windows 10 and probably a few others. (They're all an ongoing challenge!)
Over the years I've compiled a book with the words to all these songs (when I'm playing live), so people can sing along if they want. (I know you're not going to be "knocked out" by my voice, so it helps if you can try and drown me out!) So, when I decided to throw these up on the Internet, I also decided to include the words with the songs so that you could do that here as well. (Did I mention that they're in video format?)
So, here's what I think is going to happen. I'll compile these videos using some of my programs and when they're ready, I'll post them on the Social Media sites as well as here (one at a time). If you've signed up for RSS notices already, you'll get notified as they are added. If you haven't done that already, you can do that in the box below. If you're already on my email list, you'll likely get notified through an email when a song is released.
This page will likely change as I progress through this challenge but for now, this will have to do.
In fact, here's a change already: I'm going to put the most recent singalong song at the top, so the first one I did will now move to the bottom! Hope that makes sense.
Bonus For People Who Have Known Me...
If you have known me in the past, you'll have this bonus while singing along to these songs - the background pictures in the videos will be from my personal collection. So, you may see yourself or someone you know in the video!
Have a look.
