I jumped in my car and caught the tail end of a Neil Young song on ukulele. I was listening to "The Coffee House" on Serius XM Radio. Anyone know the name of the song? Thank you.

I think it's "Tumbleweed" from his new album Storytone. I don't have the album and I havn't heard it, I read a review.

Other good Neil Young songs that work well on ukulele,
and I have played for years,are 'Hey Hey My My (Into
The Black),'Pocahontas' and 'Roll Another Number'!

There was recently a Seasons theme dedicated entirely to Mr Young.

Some really good stuff on there.

Pocahontas is one of my favorite songs to play. I think a bunch of Neil Young tunes would be fun to learn.

Wasn't much of a fan of Neil Young until I started playing some of his songs. Now Harvest Moon is tops for playing to my loved one and After the Gold Rush is a favorite for my most loyal fan and critic (Me). Tumbleweed will probably join the rotation.
Thanks and Keep on Strumming

Tried to get a copy of Tumbleweeds for the car on iTunes, well it is an orchestra backed version that is just not right. For the life of me I don't know why they are offering this version. I loved the solo and hate the orchestra.
