A melancholic mood!

The place I launch my boat! The Saint-Lawrence is not frozen yet.

It actually hit 31.5 here the other night (for about 10 minutes, just long enough to kill a lot of "tropical plants" like bananas or elephant ears.

It was only a high of 58 today. People were keeling over in the streets from hypothermia

Nice video. I assume that you are providing the sound track and are the guy with a lot of Youtube videos! If it isn't you in those videos then it is someone with the same name and it looks like a stained glass sailboat in the window so I'm guessing it's you. I spent some time listening tonight and there is some good music there and a bunch of interesting guitars. As you may have guessed, I am also a guitar player but in recent years I have been playing double bass in a couple of jazz bands and double on tenor banjo in a Dixieland band. I have also played guitar and electric bass in bands for many years. Both jazz bands had a lot of gigs booked for 2020 and well into 2021 but as it turns out our last gig was in late February and we had a couple of rehearsals in March before the lockdown and since then I have been practicing a lot on my own but I really miss playing with others and playing gigs. Life goes on and maybe after all this settles down I could take a trip to Quebec and do a little jamming on some of those standards that you play, could be lots of fun. At the right time of year sailing might be an idea too, that's about four months away up here!

That's me Sirensailor! Yes I make most of my sailing videos music and I also like to record various styles of music on my different guitars. :) I am not a pro musician, even if I did play in bands in my younger years. I am just average IMHO and I do that as a hobby. I am glad that you like my music and videos.
We never know about next summer! Maybe?... ;)

I know I am dooming myself to a frigid and snowbound february by saying this, but so far January has been quite nice. If I had my Monty in the water, I could have used it a couple of times this month.
