Last week I made my and I loved all the comments I got on that blog. Thank you, beloved readers!!!
I’d posted two versions: one singing as me (but quieter than me) and one singing as Marilyn Monroe. So … drumroll … here’s this week’s version, Sous-Chef Sketch #3 (if you don’t see anything below here, just wait a bit – it has to download from Soundcloud).
This week I sped up the tempo (Sketches #1 & #2 were at 74bpm and sketch #3 is 88 bpm). I shortened the interlude (where I talk). So now it’s about 3 min 45 sec – versus last week’s sketches which were nearly 5 minutes long.
And, like last week, I LOVE getting your comments on the recording! So please comment away!
This is all in preparation for my Jan. 26th “Lose Your Blues” show at The Center for Arts in Natick (TCAN) – and now that I’ve been through the process once, I’m starting to have more fun with it, too. In fact, I’m having a lot of fun with the song, period!
Last Sunday I was at Steve Garfield’s Boston Media Makers brunch at Doyle’s in Jamaica Plain (Steve is author of the book “Get Seen“). I just happened to have my harp with me, because I wanted to ask the group for suggestions about improving the new LED lights on my harp.
Well … Bobbie Carlton of Mass Innovations Nights started talking about their upcoming “Foodie Event” (which I must attend!) and I grabbed my harp, leaped up on the bar-bench and started singing.
OK… it wasn’t exactly like that … but close! You can see it in this YouTube video that Bruce Garber of Virtual Photo Walks posted (you should also check out what Bruce does – it’s very, very, very cool!)
… or if you want to see the I-caught-it-on-my-iPhone version Bobbie grabbed, here’s a link to her Facebook video of the same moment(s).
This is part of my “Blues Blog” Post Series in preparation for my Sat. Jan. 26, 2013 “Lose Your Blues” show at The Center for Arts in Natick, MA.
