Obviously this tune sounds amazing with all the drums and brass...but just for you lucky people, here is an acoustic uke only version:

That's an old Slingerland banjo-uke (ain't it loud!!) & a special cigar box uke I had hand made for me by this man:

I really should do a thread...you can't tell due to my terrible frailing, but it's beautiful.

Also just realised...I'm wearing a Duke Of Uke 5th aniversary t-shirt.

I wish my husband were still alive--he would have ADORED THIS. And he loved guitar though didn't play. I keep thinking he'd be a natural at ukulele. He'd be making me play that banjolele like Mrs McGee in a jiff. I watched this three times and really enjoyed it. It's special.

Mr Ging-yin, our new songs have been described as "Lindy-pop"....it's also been described as "Groundskeeper Willie invading a New Orleans funeral."

p.s. do you have a CD I could buy off you, and one for my dad who loves your tunes...
