Hey UU,
I posted an acoustic rendition of "little wing" on youtube. No effects, no backtrack, just straight up uke. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJlkEneOYw0
hope you like it!

Thanks my fellow UU peeps,
I'm glad people like the vid. I promise, tutorials will come (though I can't promise soon), but rest assured they will come :D. Besides the UU is supposed to be a place for people to learn, not just show off and make "A" right? :P

I'll definitely let you know about any SD gigs. I may have a possible lead to a venue from bruddahmark (UU member). So there's an off chance it might happen :)

Hope so. Hey...what pick-up exactly do you have installed in your Koaloha tenor right now??

I know its a fishman, but I'm not sure what model. This guy back home in Hawaii installed it. I've recently installed a Dean Markley uke pickup in one of my other ukes, and I like the sound, its an easy install, no soldering needed and the output is larger than the fishman.

Heres a youtube video that shows you how to install a uke pickup. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdLUDWoh-cE

Awesome job Jason. Just might have to add this to my list of songs to tab in the future.

Nice...and thanks! The only thing I would be worried about is if I didn't drill the hole perfectly straight. That would not be good:( I wish there was a way to ensure that I get it straight. Any ideas...how did you do that?

It was really risky but it ended up working, I just held the uke and drilled. I would suggest using one of those workbench type clamp things that they showed on the vid. That way you can keep the uke stable while you drill. Also most drills come with a leveler type thing on the back and tops of the drills. This way if you keep the bubble in the crosshairs you'll be drilling a nice straight hole. Most guitar places will install pickups too. Its not too expensive for labor (60bucks maybe?) and then you don't have to worry about ruining a uke.

Dom, that would be an honor. Let me know if you need any info, (should be pretty easy to tab though).

Wow, nicely done. Smoky voice lends itself well to the tune. One of my YTube favorites now.

I don't think Jason's version is tabbed, but you get seeso's arrangement (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?13651-Little-Wing-Jimi-Hendrix).

Hi Seeso,

Thank u so much for the tabs, that must have been an enormous job. Is there any real video/audio other than the midi playback ? Which performance did you tab this from?

Thanks a lot

Said it couldn't find the video. But then I've been having all kinds of crap with YouTube tonight. Songs starting, stopping starting from the beginning again, only playing for 30 seconds, etc. Anyone else having problems?

Nope, everything seems to be working fine for me.
