Comments: Do A Deer

When I first started reading this I thought you were going to tell us he was taking up drums... LOL. I hope he has fun with voice - go Bones!

Birds love to listen to humans singing. If you know any, try stuff with long low notes in it.

When I saw the title, I thought it was going to be some kinky story about ... um ... relations with a deer ... then I realised the "do" was the musical note like from the Sound of Music song ... :)

He needs to learn guitar as well. That way he could play with Ringo in a band and he could be the lead singer. He could also entertain people at future blogmeets. It's worked for the Elderly Brothers.

Check out Max Raabe on YouTube.

He's a touch older than you.

Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester recreates music from the 1920's using current technology. The group is sort of like David Byrne and Talking Heads in that they are a collection of Art School students that founded a band.

Just think about Bones in White Tie and Tails.

By the way, I switched from violin to voice in High School after I broke my right elbow and couldn't play for the first semester. It turned out to be a good lead in to working on (and behind) the stage later on.

I had done violin to trumpet to violin between elementary school and junior high.

I inflicted violin on our eldest until she switched to flute. Our middle child was clarinet and our youngest was trumpet. None of them will admit to knowing how to sing. I wish I had gotten them voice lessons as it improves the speaking voice.

Now I am down to just the violin, cello, guitar, piano, mandolin, and voice, with most of my playing being the mandolin.

Denny's right. I can see it now. The Elderly Brothers, with a guest appearance by "Raging Hormones."

I happen to know there's a good stand of Great Highland Bagpipes hidden away somewhere in your house. I remember oiling and packing them away some 14+ years ago. I envision Bones playing the pipes for me when I get old.
