Davi Unplugged

I never in a million years thought I'd be serenading ya'll tonight(with John as my backup singer), but I figured, what the heck!

If you listen closely, at the end you can hear Calvin mumbling "do twinkle wittle star". Unfortunately, I am not that advanced yet, because it requires 3 notes: g, c AND d. John just taught me the d chord tonight, but it is a little more involved, so I will just save it for this weekend. I did manage to get Calvin singing a portion of "row row row your boat" in the following snippit, but since he's so easily distracted, you only get a tidbit of his little songbird voice.

  1. You guys are a big hit at our house! The girls came running downstairs yelling, "We heard Uncle John!"

    I am determined to learn guitar, just like you. After all, I had so much success with the recorder!

  2. Kate's yelling, "do it again, do it again!"

  3. Aw thanks Jess! I did it partly because of all the fun we had when we were together...when John played it for the kiddos--"life is but an applesauce".

    plus I'm hoping one day to play Lindsay's mandolin. Lin, is the mandolin even remotely similar to the guitar? remember, this is the musical ungenius here:)
