    Snuck in during halftime of the North Carolina-Duke basketball game. A bit of a rush job, but it's such a fun song. One of these days I'll get the whistling chord pattern right.

    This was covered live by U2, and it is from the year I was born, so enough reasons to do this one. This is my take on Mother and Child Reunion by Paul Simon.

    Thank for Geoff for this great theme. (I've played this on a 6 string for you. )

    For Season 264 of the Ukulele, “the sounds of Simon” we're playing music written by Paul Simon. Here's “Homeward Bound", played on tenor ukulele, with two vocal overdubs.

    By a strange coincidence, only last week I used an Amazon voucher to grab a bargain box set of all the Simon & Garfunkel studio albums. But...I am going to get in quick with this one from my favourite of his solo albums.

    Soprano - KoAloha KSM-00, Maccaferri Islander
    Concert - Barron River Mahogany, Barron River Cypress, MyaMoe Koa, Johnny Marvin "Tenor"
    Sopranino - Rob Collins Cigar Box
    ...all with Worth strings
    ...and a few chords

    If Paul Simon were a lecherous Scotsman.

    Another bit of an experiment. I multi-tracked six takes on top of each other. This song is from my favorite Simon album, "There Goes Rhymin' Simon," and the melody is partially based on a Bach work.
