Music to make one cringe

Post by Mawkish1983 »

I thought I'd record a version of Stuart Davis's Savoring Samsara. It's somewhat simplified because 1) I'm not very good at playing the ukulele yet and 2) I cannot find the chords, so I had to figure them.

Pretty terrible singing but a departure from my usual style, for those who remember that.

Keith,
I am sure it's wonderful but I can't play your song right now.
Here's something for you:

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

It isn't, but thank you for the confidence vote. Thanks for the chords. I actually have them on my office wall already :)

I told my kids you thought you sounded bad. They said, "he doesn't sound bad." So there you have it, from the mouths of babes.
