Completion, of sorts (YouTube phase)

Just a note to mark my completion of (subject to some double-checking!) learning all the chanties in Stan Hugill's Shanties from the Seven Seas. I finished learning and recording the last one yesterday, 31 Jan. 2012. I do have yet to record, to satisfy my own sense of completion, one well-known chanty that for reasons of a time in the past I did not make my own version of.

There are also a couple more "songs used as chanties" that Hugill merely mentioned in passing but which I'd like to learn and record.

After that I will probably turn my attention back to this blog and the reassessment ('second pass') of the YouTube recordings, in order.

  1. Super Congratulations, Mr. Chantyman, on a huge piece of important work well done. I'm looking forward to the continuation of the blog. J.

  2. Congratulations! What you've achieved so far is massive and enormously helpful, and I look forward to seeing the next stage. (and, indeed, finding out what your next project is!)

  3. OK, it's now officially complete!

    Thanks for the support!
