No problem, Jet. And ITSWD, never refer to Canadians with an e - it'll mean hockey to us.

[Mr Sun King and Jet!, Sorry about that - despite being a Yank, I have French ancestry, and sometimes it pokes through!

As a guitarist, I've always loved playing Lightfoot and Cohen stuff. Just like Donovan, Dylan, Cat Stevens, you only need a guitar, and you're all set.

Jet! said, "oh what kind of guitar do you have?"

Lots!

A '68 Fender Telecaster, Fender Telecaster made of recycled redwood (very light!), 12-string Rickenbacker (had to see if I could play the opening chord to "A Hard Day's Night," but also sounds great with Lightfoot's "Song for a Winter Night"), D-41 Martin acoustic, Yamaha 12-string acoustic ; had a Gibson SG, but impossible to keep it in tune.

Most recent acquisition is a "You Rock" guitar - a synthesizer really, but you play it like a guitar. Pretty remarkable! (there are You Tube demonstrations).

(But I'm seriously off topic too...)

 

The You Rock guitar looks like one of the guitars from the Beatles' Guitar Hero game (there, back on topic)

Jet! I think the most famous ukelele song of the last half century is Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"

It's a riot - check it out if you don't already know it.

(I don't think Tiny Tim will make anyone's Top 5 list - except maybe among ukelele enthusiasts, but he was AMAZING in one respect: his voice could reach soprano notes AND the lowest baritones. I once heard him sing an opera - both the male and female parts.

But I think he was deranged. His version of "Girl" is one of the creepiest songs I've ever heard)
