On Friday night I had the most nerdy-music-fun I’ve had in yonks.
We sorted cards in song.
(I know it sounds boring, but it really wasn’t).
A week or so ago, Burfit started sorting his (thousands of) Lord of the Rings cards into groups. Each card has a number in the top-left corner, usually between 0 and 5. When he put a card down with a 1 on it, he’d sing “one” using the first degree of a minor scale. When he put down a 2, he’d sing “two” using the second degree of the minor scale, etc (“zero” was the seventh degree using a natural minor scale). When I walked by the games room and heard him dealing cards and singing a chant , it made me want to try a two-part chant.
We each had a pile of cards and as we sorted them into number groups, we sang the number on the card .
Here’s some crappy audio of us counting, using a natural minor scale:
Here’s some more crappy audio of us using a major scale:
And here’s me laughing at Burfit:
