Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “Y”


Event Type: General Blogging

Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly

Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
Last week we had the “tagged X”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “Y” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “Y”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “Y”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the duck’s “Yas”:


Considering what to use for “Y” (yellow is too easy) I decided to learn the ragtime blues “The Duck’s Yas-Yas-Yas” as described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Duck’s_Yas-Yas-Yas – I hope you like my continuing tribute to the black music of the twenties, played on my metal Dobro (resonator) guitar (thanks to my friend Luzz, who added chromatic harp and double bass):

  4. What fun! Yellow is always tempting, but too easy as you say. I’ve gone for some famous London guards. http://travelwithintent.com/2014/06/24/y-is-for-yeomen-warders/


    • hi Debbie,
      “The Yeomen Warders, also known as Beefeaters, …” – P.S.: when I asked an Englishmen, why they are called “Beefeaters” he answered “because they eat beef” – I thought he was kidding me…


  5. Fun music, Frizz… I’m off to a Welsh valley for mine, posting a bit later

    a dirty blues song that you and Luzz replicate so well in this combo of sounds – mine is just innocent youth


    • wow, Laura,
      yapping or
      yodeling but a
      young blackbird, fresh from the
      yielding to the sun…”
      breathless I’m counting
      seven YYYYYYY!

  16. Hi Frizz, since I couldn’t find a “y” I liked i picked up your idea from last week: http://geriatrixfotogallerie.wordpress.com/2014/06/25/frizz-a-z-gallery-tagged-y/


  17. Hi Frizz,

    not yellow, but yaşıl, the Azerbaijani word for green. Here is the link to yaşıl bazar, one of my favorite markets in the city.
