This is my first video effort at playing the ukulele.

The song is a Scottish Folk song. "Coulter" was a real person who made and sold candy in the Scottish Borders in the early years of the 20th Century.

I think all first videos feature the headless uke enthusiast :) Great stab at a cool tune- hoping to see many more

Great vocals and rhythm...

I think the uke lends itself well to folk songs,

Nice job and welcome.... really enjoy the music on your You Tube channel.... I like playing bluegrass and other traditional Appalachian music - not too far removed from some of the folk tunes you play.....

First of all, thanks for the kind words all who commented.

It's a bit of a quandry. I have my instruments in a small room and I cannot get far enough back from the video camera. It's either a headless uke player or a ukeless head. Some go for one some for the other. :) Thanks for your comment on the song, anyway.

Thanks for your kind words. Of course, Appalachian music was originally brought over from the British Isles by the early settlers. There is a shared heritage. I have a copy of Cecil Sharp's book of songs he collected in the Appalachians and there are many interesting variants of songs that were also collected over here.

Thanks

Many thanks. I have modified the lyrics on the info on You Tube to include the chords that I used.

Great tune, good voice for this song. Nice video, though the best part is almost completely out of frame the whole time - rock that beard next time! Just the bottom is such a tease.
