Here's video shot by David Harrison, manager of the great Reggie Wingnutz, of me playing the Formby song, "My Granddad's Flannelette Nightshirt" at the Ukulele Cabaret last Friday night. Playing a little too fast into that solo, but at least I stayed on the road... :)

Excellent! :)

And I'm from Wigan (where George was born) and considering you ain't a native, you can do a pretty good accent!
Next time you're in Wigan, I'll take ye out for fish and chips and do a duet with thee! Hee hee! Turned out nice again, hasn't it? :)

:D Someone once said that his songs are so dirty, they're really only single entendres.

Thanks a lot, Roberta, Tor, Carrie, Stan, Jon, Gmoney and Ambient Doughnut; I really appreciate your opinion. :) UkeLad - You're from Wigan? Thanks for being kind about my attempt at losing my NY accent and speaking English properly. ;)

This made me smile so wide my face hurts...great rendition, and that BU sounds top shelf. Great playing, great singing, and great tribute to George. I plan to play this immediately tomorrow for the eight year old I drive to school every day. She can sing almost all of George's songs, which makes my life just grand.

I am indeed - so it's very easy for me to do the accent - because I already have it - I've heard some REALLY crappy versions of George from UK folk, so to hear someone across the pond doing such a difficult accent, is certainly worthy of note - again, well done to you sir. :)
