What fun this is. I ended up watching a few more videos and began practicing when my husband walked in saying with a big smile, "What are you doing/" We both started laughing and I explained. Well, he's not a morning person but my "Yodeling" gave us both a good belly laugh. Since it was 7:30 a.m. it was a good way to start the day.
Jennifer...........that is a great video and I enjoyed immensely. Have you have listened to Melanie Oesch? There are some great video of the "Oesch's die Dritten" on youtube. Every time I hear those old "jodel tunes" I think of my Bavarian roots and my grandmother showing my sister and I how to jodel with her. (just a note, she was a nurse during WW I, driving a horse and wagon as a teenager across battlefields picking up wounded soldiers...tough as nails but always able to offer a tune if you could convince her to do it.) Thanks for the post and the lesson, I had not thought of those days of some 60 years ago in long time. Blessings on ya!
Yes, Benjamin, that sounds like a great idea!
Okay, that was interesting. I think I need to watch an old Roy Rogers movie.
What fun! Thanks for posting this! You're really good at this! Reminds me of the old joke:
Who’s there?A little old lady.A little old lady who?I didn’t know you could yodel.
Thank you for the kind comments!!!
Great lesson! Thanks, Jennifer!
Jennifer this is a GREAT beginner lesson for yodeling! I did some yodeling some years ago, and once you 'get' the trick of the vocal break, it's like riding a bicycle- you don't forget and all you need is practice to strengthen your yodeling.
Thanks, love this vid!
