GUEST,Jim Carroll Upbeat Traditional Songs (40) RE: Upbeat Traditional Songs 20 Nov 07


Now you've tried 'Rocky Road' have a crack at the other test piece our workshop used, which was the Scots mouth music piece 'Tail Toddle' - a verse and two choruses in one breath,
And when you get that right you can proceed to the Gilbert and Sullivan piece which begins "First we polish off some batches of political dispatches".
I used to sing them in my sleep when I first started working in workshops; wonderful for developing technique, but the buggers grow on you after a time - I can still do them all (though I now have to take a breath after the first chorus of TT).
