You Raise Me Up
« on: July 14, 2018, 05:10:03 PM »
I've always admired Josh Grobin's song 'You Raise Me Up'. I finally figured out an arrangement that allows me to play (on a uke) and sing. Of course, I can't sing it like Josh Grobin sings it. Not sure if I'll introduce it to the Band.

Saw him perform in Pittsburgh several years ago, talented young man. I imagine his voice will continue to get better for many years.

I just remembered, got rained out at the end! Good old Pittsburgh, no matter how certain the forecasters are that it will be clear for the next week, that really means a 50% chance of rain, which translates to a 100% chance if you've been foolish enough to get a lawn seat!  ::) Did get to see about 90% of the show before I just wasn't having fun anymore

I can strum it, but prefer to thumb-strum/roll it.

If you got the vocal range to pull that off go for it!

Only if I tighten my britches.

Go for it Tom.  I was reading that Michael McDonald has a natural baritone speaking voice yet sings in a range that some women wish they could reach.  All it takes is a lot of breath.

I've been known to sing in a higher range/register, but not as high as when I was a soprano (prior to puberty).
