#5 - I'm Gonna Mail Myself to You

Song - I'm Gonna Mail Myself to You
Artist - Woody Gurthie

I spent last night with my folks out near the coast where it is SO much cooler than in Portland! My mom gave my dad and me a song book called Rise Up Singing, which lead to us playing music for about 3 hours. It was really wonderful and a great opportunity to "jam" with my dad who is so knowledgeable about music, instruments, and all things interesting about old songs.

We first learned this song (me on the auto-harp and I think my dad on the mandolin) when I was around 13 and we were a production called "A Tribute to Woody Guthrie". It was a lot of fun that we both remembered it and could play it on some new instruments.


  1. Very cool connection to have with your Pop!!!
    This may end up being a rebirth of one of my favorite old pass times, tenor four string banjo :) Glad I stopped and checked out your blob

  2. I'm so glad you want to start playing again!
