>>I once heard one of my uncles perform the instrumentals for 'Farewell to Nova Scotia' on a mandolin. He added some really amazing embellishments that really made the tune pop. I really wish I could play an instrument with that kind of competency.<<
That sounds lovely. I really like that song.
>>As for singing the chorus, I wish I knew what your voice sounds like so I could visualize (audiolize?) that. It has to be better than my chanting, which I force my circle to endure on a regular basis.<<
I really am without most of my musical ability in this body, alas. But who knows, you might be one of those rare people who can hear more of what I'm thinking than what I'm singing out loud.
