I often get mistaken for Julie Andrews.

Only posting this cause I stumbled upon a harmonica revelation I didn't know about.Not that I know much about harp playing but I dabble with trial and error.
Just came upon 3rd position harp.Good for minor blues.Use a harp one tone below the song key.So this song is in Gm and using an F harp.I like the moody wailing sound - different from cross harp blues.
Supposedly the first recorded 3rd position harp playing was Little Walter in 1951.

Tenor uke here.

Quite early here too - This woke me up.

If I was the director of a travelling teatre-grotesque you would be hired on the spot.
To introduce a performance like this the right place in a play would be of immensely strong effect. Expressionism at its best.
Not even sure you'ld need to change costume - perhaps black snail eyebrows and a glimmer cone-hat - there we go.
Invaluable.

You just can't keep coincidences down. .

Ha! BBG and EM7...talking about favorite things I think I enjoyed those comments more than any I've ever had [biggrin].
As far as spoonful of sugar..I think as a little kid we had one record at home.Mary Poppins.My sisters and I had it on high rotation. But I'll spare you any more from the Julie Andrews oeuvre.

FB... you got my dog Peggy all hot and bothered! I think this song has aphrodisiac qualities, and should be played whenever anyone wants to set the mood for love, ecstasy, wonton abandon, and bumping....

With the original post, and then Sal's response I can now say I've seen pretty much everything.

Thanks.

hehe...Thanks Bill, Murph and Sal.

Sal I can see Peggy is a big fan of 3rd position Harp playing...perhaps buy her an album by Little Walter....and maybe some pants [blush].
