I don't think you do have to sign up, you just play the song in the little player thing on the page. Unless i have got it all wrong:(

What comes up when you use the link? Does it ask you to join or does it go to my music page?

Sorry, im not very good with this stuff!

I'm a dork. Working now. Sounds cool. Has a Greek-ish or Gypsy-ish feel to it.

Very cool! Listening to this brought me back to the six months I spent drifting about the Cyclades.

I love hearing all this original uke music. Good stuff. Keep it up, man!

It definitely needs a melody line. A liberal application of tremolo, slides, and ornaments would work well, I suspect. A bit of a Mediterranean jig!

Thats the plan! I had been listening to them earlier in the day and thought; "Hmmn, lets see if i can pull off something like this using my limited resources."

Need to record the vocals when i'm feeling more hyperactive/tipsy.

The bass and electric guitar were recorded direct using in built amp simulations in garageband. The Uke tracks and percussion (tapping the back of the uke! + tamborine) were just recorded through my laptop's built in microphone. Its very slap dash, but then i prefer to put down ideas quickly while they are fresh.

Reminds me of Camper Van Beethoven.

That's a huge compliment, coming from me.

This is really cool! I've never used Garageband, love what you've done with it though. That sounded really great.
