I got myself a 5 string banjo a couple of weeks back.
Looking for a song to try it out on my pal, Joel Sattler from the USA, dropped me this true story of a cat during WW2 who was shipwrecked a whole bunch of times.
Great story.
Standard guitar, 12 string guitar, acoustic bass, banjo, harmonica, washboard, bell.
Enjoy.

Excellent as usual.  In fact I think this your best to date.

It appears that you can master any instrument that is placed in your hands.  I am green with envy!

Thanks but I can assure you there is nothing masterful here!
Fortunately, the way we work in home recording means we can do things in sections or comp bits together until they are right.
There's no way I could play 'live' these days.
Even when I compose songs I can't remember words or chords. Have to have it all written down in front of me.
Age takes it's toll.
It ain't just the arthritis that gets worse it's the eyesight and memory as well ..... I think!

Don't fret my friend as I am in the same boat!

I can't play live either for the identical reasons.  Age in taking it's toll here also.  But there is a silver lining, we lived through the best rock band era ever.  From Chuck Berry, The Stones, Beatles, Elvis,   etc those guys and gals could really play!

Love the story! As for playing live,I never really cared for it and ever since I began working with PC DAW's(never needed to.)

Fascinating tale. Nicely interpreted (as usual) Wink
