I guess with this one I just "outed" myself as a former banjo player :)
This is a traditional tune in a tonality usually called modal - it sits between major and minor keys and has a haunting yet beautiful quality that I hope I managed to express here.

Laurence :
Your uke has got to be a magic uke. You can make it sound like anything you want.
What an amazing performance!
My hands hurt from clapping!

Thanks Campbell! I won't be doing Foggy Mnt Breakdown but I think this tune suited the uke quite nicely.

Thanks Brenda! I think I keep trying to change things up because I get bored easily! :)

No banjo uke John, I really prefer the warm tones of wood - appreciate your comment!

I caught this on a Ukulele facebook post and really enjoyed it. One of the reasons this stands out to me is that not a lot of players are playing in this style and the way that Laurence is playing!
Very ukulele unique and musical. Also I feel that Laurence is really at one with this style...........you have made it your own!
Really great stuff,
Mike.

Thank you all for the very kind comments!
Mike, it's a sobering thought but I have been playing music for 50 years now (okay, I started young) :) But if I put everything I learned in a blender it might come out something like this post!
