View Full Version : Somewhere Over the Rainbow w/ cello at my graduation

My friend is a really really talented cellist, so for our high school graduation we put together a little rendition of Iz's Somewhere Over the Rainbow. She wrote the music for the cello just by listening to Iz singing. I, on the other hand, printed out some chords from the internet. But hey, it came out good! So who cares?

Tremendously cool.
In 2 years, this may not matter to you.
In 10 years, you may wish nobody had given your kids a copy.
In 20 years when that building is something else, you are going to be SO thankful we had things like YouTube so you can look at this awesome performance, wonder what ever happened to Elaine, notice that you went to sleep yesterday and woke up 40, and realize that this performance is at least as cool as I say it is. It is very, very cool.
Congratulations, and great job! :nana:

I thought it worked very nicely with two such diverse instruments. :)

Great job. I've watched a cello/uke/SOTR combination bring tears to people's eyes. Almost like it was written with the two instruments in mind.

wow. thank you so much everybody! your words make me remember the reasons i love to play ukulele.

and deach, i know what you mean about bringing tears to people's eyes. a lot of people came up after and told me that it made them cry. i'm sure the fact that it was graduation had some part in that though.
