Redid the video and it seems to be working properly this time!

I wrote this song a few months back while trying to add some percussive elements to fatten up my sound. I hope you guys enjoy, any feedback welcome :)

Thank you guys so much for taking the time to listen and respond! This was definitely one of my favorite songs that I wrote recently and it's definitely a fun one to play!

Froy and Olivah: much of the sound is coming from a mixture of a fan (four fingers on the right hand coming down hitting each string during one down strum) and mutes (used with my left hand). I'm hoping to create a video soon breaking it down so other people can experiment too :)

Ukunuke: let the count down begin to an amazing festival!

Really nice playing and singing, good song.

Thank you! I've only been writing a few years now and it's still something I need to spend a lot of time experimenting with. Are you going to the big NYC ukulele festival this year? I'm going to try and push for next year, I'd love to visit some friends down there!

I haven't been to the NYUF in a few years. But I'm also spoiled. Most of the featured musicians gig for free in NYC all the time.

Lucky! It'll be interesting to venture out east to play... Hopefully it won't be too cold, I'm such a wuss in cold weather!
