Homemade music

One of the best things about having "the kids" home on spring break is the chance to make music together. Here is some homemade music, "made in the home, on the premises," and "by one's own efforts" (Merriam-Webster Online). The song is the Raconteurs' "Old Enough," with Rachel's ukulele, Ben's banjo, Elaine's violin, and my harmonica.



And here's one made with a directional microphone and better sound quality (but no video):

Rachel and Ben, I'm so proud of you, in so many ways.

I was just telling Elaine I am now thoroughly hooked and can't like any other version of this song as much as I like yours! :)

Wonderful family! So happy to "meet" them... so very talented.

Been great catching up with you. Going over to Elaine's... see ya!

Thanks, J. I'm happy that we shared this performance, too-loud harmonica and all. : )
