Really lovely. I could see you chasing the bass notes. Excellent stuff. I would like to hear more from you!

Hey thanks Brenda! I've been around - but most people are into the singin' and strummin' (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I'm not much of a singer. Glad you enjoyed these tunes!

Holy moly!

You must be a jazz guitarist?
I would love to hear about your transition to uke, if there was one.

Thank you! I'm more of a jazz wannabee :) I also play guitar and 5-string banjo and I merged some techniques from both and transferred them to the ukulele. Whatever instrument, I always try and play the music I love and jazz is one of them. Anyway, after hearing Jake play I realized that this instrument has not limits, so anything is game!

and play it so beautifully.

Laurence,
Being new to the uke, and relatively new to this site, I have since found many members here I have denoted ‘heroes’ of mine and a complete inspiration to me. I’ve just discovered you and immediately listed you among their exhaled ranks! lol
Seriously, great playing and feel my new friend. I look forward to seeing much more from you over the months to come.
Luv n stuff,
Dave

Terrific playing. You have great style and play some really nice lines. There is an ease to your playing that is very appealing, especially as those are not easy tunes. Bravo!

So glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I think that just about any kind of music can be played on the uke :)

Thanks Dave, that's quite an honor - hope I don't disappoint!

Thanks, you just said what every musician would like to hear. Not too sure about the "ease" part, that is just an illusion! :)

Well, somebody's got to do it :) Glad you enjoyed my attempt at this tune by Bird...

Wow..best jazz uke I've heard in a long time. Your playing style reminds me of Barney Kessel.
Any chance we can get/buy the arrangements?
