365 DotU, Day 65: In Which I Am Again Running Late

Bah. Can’t get anything done today.

Today’s song is a cover of the Plant/Krauss version of “Killing the Blues”. I can’t make all of the nice slidy guitar noises, so I went with a more straightforward acoustic cover, using acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, and ukulele.

Yes, I said “ukulele.”

No, I am not obsessed with the ukulele.

Am NOT! You take that back!

Usually, when I perform this live with Josh, I use the fiddle for the break, but I wanted to try something different. It’s a pretty song, and the whole Raising Sand album it’s on is just delicious listening.

About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. Otherwise, I labor to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
