St Pat's day in UK, POETS day at work, though I'm working Saturday for once (darn it). I don't like the black stuff, though I have some Jamesons somewhere behind all the Metaxas bottles, but at least I'm having curry tonight, so that'll do to honour my Irish grandfather (well he was born in India -you can always tell a Brummie by the shamrock in his turban). Good luck to all here

"Give me two pints please, and a shot of Jameson's for the love of God!"

Jimmy played harmonica in the pub where I was born
He played it from the nighttime to the peaceful early morn
He soothed the soul of psychos and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

Sad to say I must be on my way
Buy me a beer or whisky cuz I'm going far away
Sing a song of time long gone
But they knew that they'd be seein' him again

Yay Pogues! Bottoms up!

I was reminded by the reference to Mary Macs Wedding of a weekend party we had to warm our new (300 year old) house in Brittany. Loads of our mates had come from near and far to help with the party including one Al Groat, a bodhran beating verse wielding friend from Tipperary. Over the course of the weekend much grog had been scoffed and many a fine song and tune performed for the pleasure of our friends and new neighbours. Al Groat, whose repertoire had been drawn upon all weekend, and was somewhat past his peak started to sing Johnny jump up. He has a incredible ability to remember verse after verse of even the most epic ballad, in incredible states of blatant drunkenness. Well half on hour latter he arrived at the end of said epic ballad, Johnny Jump up. Only to waver on his stool for a few seconds then cry, " hey, I have remembered another one" at which he restarted Johnny Jump Up. He only got as far as the bit where " I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up" when someone gave him a gentle shove and he to fell to the ground, where we covered him with a blanket and he stayed until morning.

I really shouldn'r drink you know, but, its expected on St. Patricks Day. Problem is, I get sentimental on this day.. One day as I strolled along Broadway
A vision came into my view
A vision of sadness and beauty
A beauty thats given to few.
There was I in the land of the stranger
There was she, I'd not seen her before
But, somehow I knew she was Irish
A sweet Coleen from Erins green shore...

I boldly approached this fair maiden
I asked her the cause of her woe
She said "I am crying for Ireland
The land where the green shamrocks grow."

Another Harp please..

Guinness in hand, SDShad contributes another of MacGowan:

I sat for a while by the gap in the wall
Found a rusty tin can and an old hurley ball
Heard the cards being dealt, and the rosary called
And a fiddle playing Sean Dun na nGall
And the next time I see you we'll be down at the Greeks
There'll be whiskey on Sunday and tears on our cheeks
For it's stupid to laugh and it's useless to bawl
About a rusty tin can and an old hurley ball

So I walked as day was dawning
Where small birds sang and leaves were falling
Where we once watched the row boats landing
By the broad majestic Shannon

Off to hear pipers and drink Guinness! Slainte!

Figure raises head a little, shakes it side to side for a while, accompanied with a loud BBBRRRRRRR sound, (as the pros do, easying the defective neurons to be dropped out the brain), then head falls back like a stone. Wagner's spirit lurking from the sky covers his face. Another night in the Tavern.

Thank you Alice, I'll tell you a secret. I have a natural ease for understanding and talking foreign languages (my father spoke Spanish, French, English, Italian, and some German), then how could I exploit that handicap for singing ? Singing in Spanish in a Latin American country ? Singing in Italian in a city full of italian singers ? No! sing in a decent English or German, and you'll be out of the mass ! That's why I prefer English and USA songs and negro spirituals when performing solos. Those who are British or Americans will be glad, and those who are not, will be amazed ! HAHAHAAAAAA !!
Well, no kidding, I really love those songs in the English language, for the language and for the music, and would sing them in any place ! But what I've said above is a little true too, for me and many singers, amateurs and professionals, don't you think so ?.:)

Andrés, regarding singing in English, I am sure you know the difficulty is that the language is one of the worst for keeping an open sound (and the best is Italian, of course). I am sure you know this from your training, as well as the sound of all the languages you have learned. When I was 8 years old, my family had two Cuban refugees come to live with us for a year and half, a brother and sister. I remember the sound of the language as they spoke it, and I studied it in school, as well as travelling in Mexico and Central America. It has been too long since I have spoken Spanish, so I've lost any fluency I had. What I did keep, which helped me in learning to sing, was the open vowels of Spanish. It helps even in singing English, because so many English speakers stop the sound on the roof of their mouth, sing through their nose, or hang onto the consonants instead of the vowels. The English words sound like so much hissing and spitting (sounds of s, t, th, k, ch) compared to Italian or Spanish.

To be able to sing the English songs will, I am sure, bring much attention to your skill.

Alice

Andres

Keep Your Hand On That Plough is a simple but powerful song. There is a version in the DT but the midi with it is in a major rather than the minor key that I learned it in.

Here is the song as I learned it -- it may have been from an old Mahalia Jackson 33, I am not sure:

Keep Your Hand On That Plow, Hold On

 

Em--------------------A7-----------
Mary wore three links of chain
Em--------------------------A7------
And every link bore Jesus' name
Em---------------------------------B7
Keep your hand on that plow,
Em------
Hold on
 
Chorus:
A7-------
Hold on,
A7--Em------
Hold on
Em----------B7-------------------
Keep your hand on that plow,
B7-----Em
Hold on

Paul and SIlas bound in jail
Had nobody for to pay their bail
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on

They began to pray and shout
The walls fell down and they walked right out
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on

Now what set Paul and Silas free
Is good enough for a  sinner like me
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on
 
 

I don't have a MIDI interface, but I can send you a small .mp3 of it if you wish -- give me an email address.

Warmest regards,

Amos

Sorcha, I'm glad to see that my English is good ! Credit to professor Mrs.Alice Vazquez from Instituto Cambridge de Buenos Aires, and credit to my parents. And to the Mudcat too, because with all this daily activity of reading and writing, I'm improving a lot. Alas, I still don't know what a POSSUM is, but I'm afraid to ask.

Praise, yes, my native language is Spanish. However, Buenos Aires has always been an international city. Some of my school mates spoke Italian with their grandparents, some spoke English, German, Arab and Russian with them. I think it's similar to New York in this regard.

Thanks Mbo ! Thanks too to you Amos, you may send that MP3 to escamillo@ciudad.com.ar

Alice, I absolutely agree - for some reason Italians have such a rich singing tradition. However, they always teach "aperto ma coperto"- OPEN BUT COVERED. When that special sound is obtained, firm but not strident, clear but caressing, then vowels of French, English, Italian and others get closer and can be treated similarly. If one is careful enough to not sing through the nose or open mouth, and concentrate "in the mask" (that's the natural resonance of the front bones of the face), then English vowels get easier. I have listened carefully to British classical singers, and although I would never sound exactly like them, I can reasonably approach that sound. Perhaps when I grow up ! I love that "singing voice" conversations, thanks for bringing up the subject.
Un abrazo - Andrés
