Mr and Mrs Sams

Posted by Bill500000 on Thursday, August 25, 2011

I found Mr and Mrs John Sams on You Tube and just had to have a go at 'The Absentee' !! I uploaded my attempt to my MP3 music if you want a listen... any advice on singing/playing will be appreciated, ...( I may have strummed the tune a bit too quick).

hiya Kester,
Here's the link below, .. I like the was Mrs Sams sings, I'm going to post a video singing this, but I'm going for a lower key than the one I did for the Mp3, .. Going to try it in 'E' instead of 'A'.

It is food made from left over vegetables fried with flour and water into a basic pastry. The squeak is the meat part which is usually finely chopped. I believe it is sometimes called toad in the hole. I never liked it but it fed people during the time of food rationing during the second world war.

Hi Chaps, I like bubble and squeek, they sell it here in the supermarkets, but it's best homemade. Toad in the hole is sausages cooked in yorkshire pudding (yorkshire pudding is eggs flour and milk made into a batter)... Ain't it confusing!!
... thanks for checking out Mrs Sams, I really like that old time singing, it's really hard for me to get that sound at the moment, I just did a vid in 'G' but I'm not happy with my singing yet. ....more practise needed!
