#JollyGoodFellow etc

Got right through with RH this afternoon - not 100% memorized yet, but almost.  It's an interesting one to learn with.  You need to be spot on with this as regards tempo: people who don't normally sing, will sing it, chorally, so you need to give them what they're expecting, no faster or slower, no awkward pauses.  So, although it's quite simple, it needs to be right.

Later, trotted though Lilliburlero a couple of times.  Need to do it once or twice every practice, to improve it and as a kind of personalized Hanon/warm-up/wtf.

Best of Elvis Costello PVG sheet music arrived in the post today. It has Shipbuilding and My Funny Valentine, which I want, and which both look graspable for the near future.
