New tune on Ukulele page

To be honest, I didn’t think it would take me this long to post just the second tune on the ukulele page! Believe me, it’s not because I’m not playing… I just haven’t been able to sit down and record anything. Well, this weekend the wife and daughter are away, and I had run out of excuses!

Well, the first tune, “I’ll Fly Away,” is a slow, lovely tune. I was going to post “Can’t Help Falling in Love” as the second, but it is also a slow, lovely tune. Didn’t want to feel in a rut, so instead, I’ve posted a catchy, funny tune from the Monty Python gang, their “The Lumberjack Song.” Yes, it’s possible to do on the ukulele – just check out the chart!

In the queue for upcoming recordings will be “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” because it’s a very nice tune, along with a Billy Joel tune, “Movin’ Out,” and one of my favorite show tunes, “Edelweiss.”

Trying out the audio…

I’m going to be trying out the audio features on the blog. Started with a simple one – a recording of my arrangement for I’ll Fly Away, on the ukulele page.

Ukulele page…

Just for giggles and grins, there is now an ukulele page. As I work them out, on this page I’ll be putting charts for the songs I play most often on the ukulele.

For starters, I’ve added “I’ll Fly Away,” a lovely gospel tune written by Albert Brumley in 1929. The version I like is by Johnny Cash, who had the incredible ability to get to the essence and heart of a song, and so that’s the version I tried to duplicate in the chart.
