Italy's singing from windows has inspired people on our local NextDoor neighborhood site to begin singing from porches at 6 p.m. I posted that our neighborhood is all acreage & I'm high atop a Bunny Slope of a hill so it didn't seem practical for me. Suggestions were made & I decided to try it today.
Today the song was Sweet Caroline. DRAT! Yesterday's Amazing Grace I know sooooo much better & could use my dulcimer. Only found guitar tabs & went on YouTube since I wasn't too sure beyond the chorus. Found Neil Diamond has changed the lyrics slightly for Covid-19 to "hands, washin' hands; don't touch me; I won't touch you."
How did it go?
No other driveways had singers (or anyone in sight), but I started anyway. Along came a jogging couple. She smiled & waved & I did, too. They kept jogging (not necessarily a review on my playing & singing, but freely confess I came darned near tears & became slightly choked up at times -- hey, I'm a storyteller, not a musician, even when I include music in my programs.
LoiS(inging at 6, but hope for a longer Heads Up on tomorrow's song) or LoiS(urely we can't let Italians be the only ones singing!)
