Good job Captain!

There must be something swirling around the Ethernet. I just picked up a harmonica and working my way through this:

Thanks. When I bought the harmonica (Hohner Marine Band), it came with a one-month free subscription to a blues harmonica course; $16.95 per month after that. The guy doing the course said, "If you practice regularly, you should be able to play a song in about 2 months..."

Two months? I've gone through a couple modules of that course, mostly to understand how to tongue block. (insert your own "Junior High School first kiss " joke here )

So far, what I have gotten out of it is a sore jaw and chapped lips.

The Kazoo is easier. One year I bought a gross of Kazoos and passed them around to all the village kids. Within minutes those kids were making some great sounds. For about a week the village was full of joyful sound. Once the parents figured out where the Kazoos came from, I had to hide out for while.

You don't hear a lot of blues kazoo players.

Hard to find the minor pentatonic scale on the kazoo.

I didn't say it was an easy instrument to learn. It's a very sensitive horn and it takes a pentatonic sort of person to play the pentatonic scale.

I hear that Pentatonia is lovely at this time of year.

We are, of course, talking about carbon fiber Kazoos.

Ah, to be Petatonic in Petatonia, when the Petonias bloom.

I used to live in Petaluma, and played pentatonic scales there. But we never had petunias.....

Home! Four driving days, but I did pull the X10 out a time or two once we were settled in for the evening.

We rolled onto our island and had the motorhome parked by the house at 3:00 this afternoon... mostly unloaded by 6:00. We always say, "Let's not be crazy about unloading..." but we always are. On the bright side, I left one guitar out while we were gone: the X7. I took a "3 song break" from carting stuff and played that great little guitar. Love it! Rufus loves it. In between carting stuff, the Blonde applauded... and said, "You are a happy boy, aren't ya?" Yep. In another day or two, I'll get some more guitars out... although the X10 and the Yamaha Silent Guitar are on the wall, already. I did miss having the variety while we were out.

Once we get the motorhome cleaned up and put away, I will have more time to get my guitar room set back up. Right now, I feel like I need a break.

My apologies for the non-kazoo content.

I must have been road weary when I made that post above... it was 5 days of driving, not 4. On the bright side, the X20 got to come out and play... it makes my heart, ears, fingers, and belly (from the rumble) happy.

And now you have time to work on your Kazoo. Life is good.
