Five-finger exercise

It’s music time again. Another old song finally brought to completion (though not as old as the last one I posted!)


Pentadactyly – Jon Garvey 2014

If you’re interested in technicalities the wind backing is a sax quartet on tenor, alto, soprano and sopranino. The guitar is my trusty 1984 Lowden. Ten fingers were used in the recording of this track…


About Jon Garvey

Training in medicine (which was my career), social psychology and theology. Interests in most things, but especially the science-faith interface. The rest of my time, though, is spent writing, playing and recording music.

    Well, I never pictured you with that voice. I always envisioned you with a softer “tea-time” type of voice. Now everything is ruined. 😛

    Jon, I usually get little to no response on biology geek songs, but my youngest nephew (a promising drummer) liked it on Facebook. At 17, he knows music from the ’40s when his namesake great uncle was drumming in college swing bands up to the present moment. You might have a little talent. 🙂

    Preston – the Internet makes a “one hit wonder” somewhat less of an achievement than before. As my father was playing in swing bands in the forties there’s no doubt some common musical ground between your nephew and myself… though not that many swing hits were in 5/4.
