This video segment was recorded and filmed by Sitting In Pictures - the film company which is producing the on -going heritage documentary series "FOODAGE ". So far 2 episodes have been aired on Okto tv every Thursday night at 10 pm. The song I did " Tng Suah Nang " is an old time campfire song we sang in the 50's and 60's. I accompanied myself on my Maestro Concert ukulele without any extra amplification. The segment was done impromptu without any prior rehearsal or practice. So do forgive any technical minuses if any. It was featured in episode 2 of Foodage shown on 11 August 2011. It's now on Youtube.
In fact, if I may say so, musicians like myself and others who know many old songs that are seldom sung or even heard of today should put it down on video or recording so that the next generation can learn from these same songs and how to sing them. Don't wait for a proper occasion like a recording studio. Just do it whenever the opportunity presents itself...like what I did here.
I'll put up the lyrics and the chord arrangements next.
Have fun, sing and strum along !
