    Default Peanuts on the uke...

    For all of us who appreciate simple things - which is probably all uke players... (and especially you Jon...)

    ha!!!
    I think this is my one and only claim to fame brus:
    in 2011 I doctored the original strip which said, "banjo".
    I coloured and scanned it and posted it online and it went sort of viral - in the uke loving commune anyway
    still always makes me smile whenever I see it reposted.
    the original print I made is sitting in a picture frame on the drawer in the bedroom.
    as an aside, I wrote a song just a few days back and roped in a few of my favourite friends for the video.
    this thread post just made my day day man. thank you.
    here's the song.

    I love the song brother Jon....you just made my day! The song reminds me of some of the songs you used to post in a previous life. The only thing missing was the famous Eugene "knock" on the soundboard!

    Cheers to ya, well done, not medium-rare!

    Eugene is in all of us... just like Peanuts is, or Michael Leunig, or Cliff Edwards - what ever we get, we are.
    We are uke.
    Hey - this one boomeranged right back at you brother Jon!
    Thanks for the song - it made my day (I needed it)

    Instead of anticipating the goal, learn to enjoy the Journey for this is where we spend 99.9% of our time.

    Love "I'm Always Trying to Catch a Sunbeam"!! Really nicely done -- thanks for sharing!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Damn good song and recording Jon! I didn't realize it was an original until I went online to search for the chords so I could learn it
