Hi Folks

Just posted my 'no frills', 'one take' attempt at Irving Berlin's 'Blue Skies' on my lovely luthier built, Argapa piccolo uke that I won in the raffle at this years Hollesley Ukulele Festival.

Hi John, nice to see you making videos again, haven't seen you on here for a while. Well done for winning that little Uke, it sounded great, so did the song.

Hey Leroy, Nice to hear from you too! Yeah, I haven't been on here alot recently, but still playing my ukes loads and getting to as many ukulele festivals/gatherings as possible as work is very quiet this summer. How's things with you these days?

I love that song. You did a good job. Where did you find the beginning piece?

Hi roxhum

There is also a nice instrumental tab available, which I haven't quite cracked yet!
