Finally, after four years, I have met with my friend and guitarist Eddy Bakhash to prepare to record my song... (The one I like best).

We spent time going over the basic melody with Eddy playing different styles such as California 1980s, jazz and Hawaiian... There are more options I never knew existed.

The sheet music was then sent back to Wayne Hiller, a nationally known music arranger for bands.

He and Eddy will have a sit down session to put together the loose ends.

Then it's back to me and my marginal talent.

I may do two different versions....one for the mainland, and one for the Pacific Islands.

Avenue Viet posters will hear it here first!!!!

....and I'd like to know, before summertime is through,
If, Hula Girl, I might fall in love with you.

Summertime has been through for a while now. Unless you're living in Australia! bleh

So, even if the Summer Girl is in Australia, you'd better hurry up and post your song! Very Happy

Well to me down under I don't like songs about girls anymore as I am a Grumpy Old Woman but Myosotis who is still here in Sydney doesn't mind them but want to hear them from a man more her own age and not a much older man...LOL super grin

How did Summer Girl become Hula Girl, and why has the song been moved from the Courting thread in L'Avenue to here?

UnMask first posted it as his "entry" in the competition for his Summer Girl, whoever she may be - Asian Princess, Inkling or our Fearless Leader.

Is UnMask deserting the Courting thread? Pity! I was enjoying that.

Maybe he is afraid of losing his silver spurs.

I traded 'Summer' for 'Hula' when in Hawaii....

It was a financially practical decision.... It is always Summer in Hawaii....

I did a "Scratch copy" of Summer Girl so I can learn the melody totally- kind of a sing and drive practice session.

In the last ten days I completed "Autism" and wrote "Hot Heart" for a female voice.

I also wrote "Diamond Lights", "Umbrella Girl", "A City Boy Gone to Country", "the Selling of a 9-1-4", and "Ya Gotta Live and Let Live".

The 9-1-4 piece was making an older poem into a song, and Diamond Lights was a rewrite.

For those of you who read this far, here is a limerick-

"They couldn't wait to the end of the wake,
To hear the will and find out their take.
Did they all get parity?
No, Grandpa gave it it charity!
Call the lawyers! That will is a fake! Eek

Soon, very soon. I made a video of the song (took me three whole nights, and I mean nights, I went to bed as the sun was rising), and we will post it as soon as UnMask makes up his mind which of the two versions I made he prefers. Also he has to open an account with a video hosting site, so we can post the link to the video here.

In the next couple of days, I'd guess. Very Happy
