I had so much fun covering "Garden Grove" by Sublime yesterday that I decided to cover another one. I play Sublime's version with some lyric changes. The song was written by The Toyes. I almost gave up on this vid, because the tempo was just all over the place. I even tried to use a click track, but my fingers have a mind of their own. It was a fun project and I hope you like it!

Lyrics

I play two ukes in the morning.
I play two ukes at night.
I play two ukes in the afternoon, it makes me feel alright
I play two ukes in time of peace, and two in time of war
I play two ukes before I play two ukes,
And then I play two more

Daddy he once told me son you be hard workin man
And momma she once told me son you do the best you can
But, then one day I met a man who came to me and said
Hard work good, and hard work fine but first take care of head
I play two ukes in the morning.
I play two ukes at night.
I play two ukes in the afternoon, it makes me feel alright
I play two ukes in time of peace, and two in time of war
I play two ukes before I play two ukes,
And then I play two more
Krabbers plays two ukes
Deach he plays two ukes
Lisa plays two ukes
Andy plays two ukes
Danielle plays two ukes
All of u.u. plays two ukes
Everybody should play two ukes
Everybody should play two ukes

The Chords are A F G just about the whole way through the song.

There were 5 tracks
1. uke and vocals
2. drum kit (yamaha dd-60)
3. conga kit (yamaha dd060)
4. electric guitar (plugged in through a ux2 toneport)
5. bass (microkorg synth)

I used audacity for the audio and power director for the video. I wish I had sony vegas...
