Music nut, my passion, am not a musician.

Little off-topic... however I would like to express my deep sorrow in regard to the recent death of Jeff Healy (blind Canadian musician). What a voice, what a unique individual, what a talent!!!!!

Miss you Jeff,

There's only one thing I love more than my Overlander and that's my Hammond organ with a Leslie speaker...but on the road I have to settle with a digital hammond and smaller Leslie that fits nicely in a special area of the interior...

Actually, I play the keys (but am not pro) and have sang with folk, rock, and jazz bands (not pro).

Love music, it's part of my soul.

I have great admiration for those that can play any music. I cannot. I do build and here are a couple of shots of a dulcimer I designed and build. Also teach a class on building using this one as the model.

Keyboard.

Despite being partialy deaf & tone deaf & havin dyslexic fingers... I think I'm doin quite good... let Me quickly tell U... I bought a Realistic Concertmate-450 / 100 sound... 19 white keys Keyboard from our local car boot sale, I only paid 50 pence for it, I just wanted the speakers for a old CD player to use in My shed... Turns out the seller was WRONG, it works fine, it realy IS GOOD... quite loud too !!!... So I tinkered about with the keys, & hey presto I can play the darn thing... Well... sort of, a couple of Perry Como songs, Danny Boy & All things bright & beautiful...BUT... sadly ONLY the first two lines of them all... However I am lucky because the previous owner left the ABCDEFG note stickers on all of the keys... Ha Ha Ha... Trouble is I would feel kinda DUMB going into a music shop askin for song books which show songs in the " ABC " format...Are there such books that I can purchase ?... Where do I begin to look... Not being a musical gifted person I am open to ideas & HELP... Thank U & God bless...Chris.....

Everybody has to start somewhere, so don’t be embarrassed to go to a music store and ask for help.

Tackle the treble (top) clef first. The lines are EGBDF (Every Good Boy Deserves Favor) and the spaces are FACE, both from the bottom up.

Of course, that would be Favour in the UK, hence the title of the Moody Blues album Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (album - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Microsoft Encarta online has a photo of the scale to the keyboard at http://encarta.msn.com/media_3960000...cal_scale.html.

That C below the treble clef labeled c1 is Middle C. While that illustration refers to the clefs as staffs, clef is what music teachers call one. I should know, in the 4 years I took piano, I managed to work my way through 1 year’s amount of books.

There is also a good discussion of the musical scale at WikipediA, Musical scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Boy, does that bring back memories of helping my older brother load up his L100 Hammond and 147 Leslie. I can pick up my guitar by myself. My amp, too.

Several years ago, Smithsonian magazine did an excellent article on Airstreams. Wish I could find a reprint. There was in interior photo of the Thetfords’ custom built Airstream that has a built-in organ. Mrs. Thetford played the organ. And yes, they were that Thetfords. Mr. Thetford was a friend of Wally’s and, if I remember correctly, they had WBCCI number 3. Maybe PeeWee can verify this. It has been a while since I read the article.

Very Sad and Ashamed

As a youngman I was in a family band kinda.Father played Drums and Uncle played lead gutiar and I played rythum gutiar and Tenor banjo we always had a friend that played Accordian .
I played 1 chair Trumpet in the highschool band and also played piano.
Now I am ashamed to say I have lost it all. I have not played anything for 35 yrs .I always had an excuse "I'm to busy" Then I discovered the real reason I didn't play any more a couple of yrs ago I'm almost Totally DEAF Take care of what U have,always wear hearing protection in noisie Conditions even when U don't think its noisie.
I know I should be ashamed.
AND I AM.
Roger

Guitar, saxophone, drums, trumpet, and harmonica.
The guitar and the harmonica are the only ones I've messed with in several years. I play a lot of southern rock and blues, but I have dabbled in all sorts of things. (I'm a closet Leo Kottke fan)

As for the WBCCI's two bands- show tunes? big band? For crying out loud, no wonder the overall view of the club from the younger generations is basically that of a nomadic retirement home. Wouldn't a nice country band appeal to a broader audience? I know Airstreams have been around since the '30s, but many of their current owners haven't.

I have not seen the article. I have seen an earlier article in the Smithsonian.

Airstream #3 belonged to the McCoys, James L. (Mac and Nina.) They were early Caravanners and Charter Member of the WBCCI. They were good friends of Wally, Stel, my Mother, and mine. They were members of the early Jack Rabbits.

I don't believe this number was issued many years after it was issued to the McCoy's. To verify this you need to contact the Club in Jackson Center, or possibly Mike, my friend, in Nova Scotia can pick this up.

When you say Mr. Thetford, do you mean the founder and owner of Thetford Toilets? If so that is Frank Sargeant, trailer number 1208. He was very active on later Caravans and Club activities. He led a trip in China (#C1).

You may want to contact the Smithsonian for a reprint of the article.

That's about all I can comment on.
