365 DotU, Day 110 Is All About The Fiddlin’

365 DotU, Day 97: The Return of the Ukulele

Confession time: I am becoming a bit of an instrument hoarder. I am particularly acquisitive w/r/t instruments with the word “tenor” in their names (tenor banjo, tenor guitar, and now…yep, I have one, a tenor ukulele). Yeah. Whatever. Don’t judge … Continue reading

365 DotU, Day 89: In Which I Celebrate Cheese

There’s just something about an earnest, cheesy, brilliant Bon Jovi song that kind of makes my day, especially the earlier stuff. Slippery When Wet (for example), as an album, is not great art. It wasn’t trying to be, of course. It’s … Continue reading

365 DotU, Day 88: Makin’ Lemonade

To celebrate the occasion of my voice being utterly useless (bronchitis is not my friend), I decided it might be time to tackle an instrumental or three, what with having not kept up with the ol Challenge very well of … Continue reading
