Couple of recorder pieces

 Two short pieces from my Brian Bonsor tutor book. They're excerpts from larger works.

Mein Verlangen by Susato, and The Little Wood Bird, a German tune.

Re-string x 2

 The strings on my Fender acoustic were too light, it was affecting tuning, so I decided to get some medium weight strings for it (Martin Monels, 13-56). My partner ordered them for me and as a surprise she got a second set, for my Tanglewood, which has had the same strings since it was bought, back in 2011!

So today I finished stringing them up. Unfortunately I lost one of the Tanglewood's original bridge pins, so I alternated with some black pins I got from Wish.

Bit of slide

Slide is such fun
 Playing on the Tanglewood in standard tuning, using my Dunlop 222 brass slide and a pick that I for free with a Blackberry Smoke album.

Bit of blues

Bit of blues on my cheap Jose Ferrer classical guitar. Now put aside in favour of the newer Valencia hybrid

Boom Chicka Boom strum

 Trying out a strum pattern from one of Phil Doleman 's 2 Minute Tips YouTube videos. You strum with the thumb, then follow up with the the fingernails, bringing the thumb to rest at the top, muting the strings. It gives a nice boom chicka rhythm.
