The Typography Blues (revisited)


Original Version

The Typography Blues


With apologies to George Gershwin: white man — particularly this one — can’t sing the blues.

With apologies to the listener: it’s rough and ready, words written and the four parts recorded in about an hour and a half. And I can’t sing the blues. Or even sing.



With apologies to Augustana; this comedy cover was put together in just four hours, so it’s a bit rough around the edges. But even I sound like Coldplay now.

Call the Cowboys Home


“Call the Ships to Port” by Covenant went a bit silly in my head. Now it’s “Call the Cowboys Home”. The rules:

  • no music
  • no practice
  • figured out by ear as I went along
  • one take for each track (no going back and fixing mistakes)
  • instrumentation: one guitar, my voice (beats are done by knocking the body of the guitar)
