Re: DECEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHRISTMAS SONGS

Mojo you got a nice cool  style of singing and playing.

Re: DECEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHRISTMAS SONGS

Wow just got through listening to them all .... so great to see so many entries smile

zurf .... I  didn`t know that song ~Christmas for cowboys~ yet i know most of Jonn Denvers music, must be one I missed along the line somewhere.  Nice cover by you, suits your voice, easy listening guitar.

Peatle .... I like your drawings!  You talked about the drawings on the wall and what they meant, what about the bottom one on the wall, you didn`t talk about that one?  Great to see you join in and a Merry Christmas to you too.
Also Peatle, in your second post, that is another great drawing (although I had the privilage of a sneak preview on this one smile)  The way you put the drawing together with your writing and then to put it together with music and you singing along, and talking was very cool... very original, i like it.

neophytte .....Santa Baby ...... your wife was awesome and has a great voice! She sang this song so well, she nailed it!  Get her on here more often!   Your guitar playing along with her was good too, what a team.
Also neophytte .... If I saw those spiders I would be running (in my case limping) as far away as I could in the other direction!  lol

Tigljk ..... glad you put your song in here that you wrote!  Its a great song!

beamer ... thanks for the correct link to the Ramones song, not sure what happened either.

easybeat .... A well written song by you ~Kiwi Christmas~, great the ukulele group performed it for you too.

mojo ...... ~Merry Christmas from the family~ .... never ever heard that song before so I went and listened to it.  You covered it well, great job.

Laugh Lots ... Forgive Much ...  Love one another     smile

Thanks - I'm still trying to convince her to do "Hallelujah" ... but I can't pick with my sore thumb sad

The Christmas spiders are actually about 5mm across (the picture is hugely magnified) - I'd be more scared of the Christmas Island crabs ... there's an estimated 45 million this year ...

Re: DECEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHRISTMAS SONGS

Neo you got a natural way of tackling any song it is nice to listen to.
Jandle your Christmas songs are choice bringing a  Kiwi experience of Christmas to the world. Very much an Ozzy style of Christmas also in some ways.

Yep smile I've been trying to get the kids to do the actions* to the "Aussie Jingle bells" (which is pretty similar to the one you did!!), but time has been running away from us - seems every weekend is full and this week my Mother-in-law arrives from overseas so probably won't get to it sad

Cheers

My time is running out, Mother-in-law arrives tonight, so went before work to Kings Park (which is about 200 metres from work) and recorded "Hallelujah":

Enjoy!

Re: DECEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHRISTMAS SONGS

Here is my last song for this month of Christmas songs .... it was a challenge and i found it hard to find chords that suited my vocals as it is quite low in places and high in other places.  Anyway, here is my attempt at it.
