    I'd just like to know if they look roughly Ok, so that I don't sing complete gibberish if I give this a try. Thanks.
    It looks pretty good. Just some tips for pronunciation...

    1. Vowel sounds = a is as in father, e is as in pen, i is as in pin, o is as in dog, u is as in chute. If there are any vowel combinations, it doesn't change the sound of the vowel. Pronounce each vowel individually (nb "you" is not pronounced as you would pronounce "you" in English)

    2. Where it says "wo," don't pronounce the "w."

    Otherwise, I look forward to hearing it.

    Good theme Sarah. There are a number of foreign language songs I would like to do. Iam not sure I know many Catalan Songs do you have some link suggestions?
    "Inspire me muse to sing of the wanderer, who sailed the wine dark sea and toppled the towers of Ilium"
    "Make a Joyous Noise"
    "Let there be song to fill the air"

    Thank you! I have a basic idea of how to pronounce Japanese (tried to learn it years ago, never got anywhere beyond the very basics) but a few of your tips were new to me.

    I remember it, but never really got into it.

    If I get time, I might try another song by Joe Hisaishi this week. It was written for a countertenor, so I'll have to bring it down an octave. Trying to convince Tiffany to do something too.

    Sara, I plan to have my husband sing while play the ukulele. I hope that is within the rules. I will bring you something in Catalan and maybe something in mumbo jumbo

    So far in the Seasons, I've sung in French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Japanese.

    I'd love to someday do a song in Malagasy, but it probably won't happen this week. There's a song from Madagascar that I figured out the chords for years ago. I can now find the lyrics via Google, but the language is so dense (lots of syllables per second) I don't think I can figure out the singing in a week.



    If you want to try following along with the words: Mahaleo - "Ramiaramila" Lyrics
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!
