GUEST,Woody England's National Musical-Instrument? (1943* d) RE: England's National Musical-Instrument? 20 Nov 08


From: Ruth Archer

"I just listened to "Down in Yon Forest" on WAVs myspace page. It is truly vile. Quite possibly the worst rendition of a traditional song that I have ever heard."

Followed closely by The Holly and the Ivy.

David, can you not hear that in Down In Yon Forest you're not even singing in the same key you're playing in?

Your bizarre, forced vowel intonation of "coovered" doesn't make you sound any less Australian, by the way.


I just popped onto the site to listen to his outpourings. I'll give him credit, it's the best laugh I've had in a long time. Is it possible he's actually got worse? Out of key, out of tune and timing all wrong - were you drunk when you recorded them WAV?

My 6 year-old said about 'Oh come all ye faithful' - "Daddy that's awful. Can you turn it off please, I'm trying to play!" - out of the mouths of babes?

Remember this is the guy who presumes to tell Eliza FC how she should perform.

I also had a look at his green/godly gardening post - apparently we're not allowed to grow non-native plants either, so it's Dandelions and Fat Hen for tea again.
