I'm currently working on a large ukulele driven collab in support of the tsunami survivors in Japan. The video will mix scenes of musicians performing with scenes from the tsunami, and also have information about how one could help out. I've chosen the Beatles classic song "Let it Be."

I thought it might be a cool idea to have a grand finale for the video taped live at UWC. In consultation with hoosierhiver, we figured the best time to try this would be just after the group photo on Saturday evening.

For those who are attending UWC and interested in doing this, I have assembled a backing track and songsheets. Just send me an email at ronin@gopherp.com and I can forward the materials to you.

I think this would be a fun way of sending some ukulele love into the world. My hope is that some watch the video and not forget about the situation in Japan. I also hope that some of those directly affected by the tsunami may see this and feel just a little bit supported.

I wanna do some work. I haven't in a long time and need to get my ukulele gears up and going.

I just taught that to a newbie at HUGz (Hampton Roads Ukulele Group) meetup tonight!

He was so excited -- he plays guitar, but can't read music.
