    Groundhog Day A&B in one video using A and C chords. A sort of tutorial on some blues licks.

    This is another version, this one features a Shaker egg (in my strumming hand), Bass drum (left foot) and foot Tamborine (right foot). So everything was recorded live, doing this is much harder then I already thought it would be.

    Boodle Am Shake is a fun song from the great jazz composer Spencer Williams. In Part A, I'm doing this "raw," with no reverb, multi tracking, or even green-screen!

    Here's Part B of Boodle Am Shake, in which I added some synth instruments, reverb, and a fun background.

    Phil Ochs was a Protest Song Singer=Songwriter in the '60's and 70's.

    Hmm, I might have to get in on this one.

    If anyone brave enough to cover one my songs, I have charts for most of them.

    And Phil Miller, who played guitar for National Health, Hatfield and the North, and Matching Mole. All of which translate oh so well to the uke.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    I have a wonderful subscriber who always leaves the most thoughtful comments on my videos and recently asked what process there is to choosing a Uke for a song (which has recently changed now that my old Bari lives at school spreading the mojo). It was an interesting question and this season allows me to give you a little window into what life is like for the Cloverdale Wife.
    Essentially, I find the song I want to do, and then the whole gang comes out. I usually play the song in more than one key...and so on.
    Stylistic variation will be hard for me because I have my own groove, but key changes and different instruments is easy.
    Anyway- I will shut up and play you all another Lost Dog Street Band Song that I really love.
    When I went Down To Georgia- done very late last night (I don't know when it is midnight in HI-so I saved it for now. ), in the Key of C on a giant Banjolele (SLingerland Maybelle Irish Tenor 1930's tuned DGBE with nylon strings)...Haven't played in C since I quit smoking...not sure I should again
