Below are two clips from February’s climactic street performance. I promised that, no matter what shape my accordion skills were in at the end of the month, I’d do a street performance, and I delivered! It was better than I feared it could be, but worse than I’d hoped it would turn out. Ultimately, the performance was exactly what it should have been: Fun. Nothing more, and nothing less.

Fellow Brave Newbie, Angela, has joined forces with me learning a new instrument. Look! She has a ukulele! And we’re kind of sort of covering my accordion hero, Jason Webley, with the song “Eleven Saints.” Oddly enough, Jason Webley doesn’t play accordion in this song, so I’m trying to figure out a part on my squeeze box that fits. I’ve got the bass chords figured out, but the melody’s going to take a little more creativity I guess.
Angela’s done an amazing job learning ukulele, she’s tackling this song heroicly.
Also, we were playing along with the song, and the microphone in the MacBook is apparently positioned right next to the speakers, so through much of the song the actual Jason Webley is drowning us out.
