Look what I found from our Gretchibald (Alan)

Following the fantastic music videos he has been posting of Zolene and Katherine @Gretchibald (Alan) and his two Muso pals have been busy showing them that the oldies can still bang out a good tune. I came across this today which they have just done. I have no idea how they did it as they are clearly not in the same location but hopefully Alan will be able to tell us.

Thought it was really good. More please. Great Harmonies.

if you are angry Alan, blame Jane, I did ask her.

Well that was great, and as an old Beatles fan it’s a yes from me. More would be very welcome,

Alan has a wee bit of a Freddie and the Dreamers movement there too.

That made me smile, 3 old codgers who can still make music sound like music.

Next time maybe there will be a harmonica as well

Aaagh. Thank you for all the kind comments.

Esler , the lead singer , has been a huge Beatles fan from an early age . He visited me a few weeks ago to get his computer fixed ( by my son) and while he was waiting we had a little sing song to pass the time . Jayne recorded one of the Beatles songs we did and put it on facebook. All Esler's friends and 'fans' ha ha from over the years and around the world seen it and asked for more. So this is the more , we have recorded about 10 Beatles songs now and it's been great fun with lots of reminiscing from the old days when we all played in a band together. We spent more time laughing at ourselves than rehearsing so when we manage to get through a whole song we say 'that'll do' . Typical comments overheard in the recordings before the 'cut' . All my girlfriends are dead now. One's in a nursing home. I need a stool to get on my motorbike. I can't put my socks on anymore. This guitar strap is going for my arthritis. How close is the toilet here.

The 'magic' of clipping video and editing is all done by Zolene , we're too old for that stuff.

Yes fingers are still pins and needles but much improved , if only the feet would do the same . That was a 3 hour session , the next day I was 'laid up' but back to 'normal' the day after.
