Rule number one when yodelling in a kilt...

... Do NOT drink a double Whisky and a beer before performing in a yodelling concert, however nervous you might feel. Tripping on stage when in a kilt is not a good idea and hysterical laughter from the audience really does not help to concentrate on the Swiss-German lyrics and all the jos and los!

IF I had, I would have not had such a big "hooooooo" from the audience...and "ho" is a traditional Swiss yodel sound, so that's ok!

Re: Rule number one when yodelling in a kilt...

For those of us who have inside contacts in the kilt department, there are those who go commando. As to McTAVGE maybe he can only hit the high notes when it is cold & he's hanging out.

Re: Rule number one when yodelling in a kilt...

However, the Swiss have forgiven me: I am taking 21 Swiss-yodellers along to Scotland next year and we'll be yodelling "Loch Lomond" on Loch Lomond. Should be epic!

Shouldn't that be "Roamin, in the Romand"?

Like wearing a kilt on one of Lady Godiva's high stools is a good idea!
