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.
