Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “NNN”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “O” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “O”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “O”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the ballad “Banks Of Ohio”:


me, trying to finger out on my acoustic guitar the melody of the BANKS OF OHIO:

  1. Hi Frizz, your music always makes me smile. Ohio. What a beautiful choice. My O contribution is Oldtown Bratislava. 🙂 Here’s the link!


    • about the sculpture, looking out of a whole: “this man is forever stuck here as he likes looking up women’s skirts…” – I suppose it is a World War 2 hero, resistance, fighting from under the boardwalk?


  2. I thought right away of Odes so I’m attaching Another Ode. But Banks of the Ohio, as you know, is one of my favorites. I’ll attach it later. Here’s the little ode.


  3. Here’s another version of Banks of Ohio. But yours is excellent. One of your best. That bass sounds very soulful. Hats off!


    • wonderful tribute to blind Doc Watson, R.I.P.! But he cannot be the murder. But your voice here sounds painful and guilty. What have you done! Electric chair, pistol or hanging – what will you choose?


  4. Love this one Frizz, but even better it took me to ‘Wind from Africa’ .


  5. Two beautiful renditions, Frizz 🙂 It’s one of those so familiar tunes that I only know one line of- down by the banks of the Ohio. Thank you for sharing.


    • it’s a very ironic version, a ballad about a murder, I’ve often sung that with my friends – and made a German translation – and then suddenly the audience realized what I was singing about!

    Oozing a lovely lazy sojourn by those banks 🙂 I’ve gone O literal this post


  7. Been enjoying your Ohio this morning, Frizz. To your Ohio I add my Only One Ogunquit:

    I really enjoy the Ohio video. Thank you, Frizz! Here is mine for this week:


    • hi Lynne,
      your wonderful “onion domes” in St. Petersburg
      “…used as a warehouse for vegetables
      through the Cold War; finally re-opened in 1997…”
      greetings by
      Russian Dolls


  9. A peaceful look at the Banks of the Ohio. I enjoyed it very much as I have never been. of course, your finger style guitar playing adds to the enjoyment while viewing. I have been on a paddle boat. You feel like you’ve gone back in time. Very nice …


  10. Like Ohio, though I’ve never been.
    This was a tough one for me, but here you go


  11. Oooo is what we say after a canadian thanksgiving meal – here is one of the ingredients! Please have a look at


Hearing from you makes my day!
