1930. Gus Kahn; Walter Donaldson.

wonderful jazz standard that became the great Nina Simone's signature song. (apologies for the truck noises...mum and dad live on a highway and barely a minute passes when the log trucks don't roll by)

recorded on an ohana sopranino.

with much appreciation to ukesterbrown for the chord transcript and his beautiful rendition. Thanks for taking a look gang. :)

Jon what can ya say that hasn't already been said before? You are my uu idol. You are #1. Your choice of songs, playing, singing and delivery never disappoints and always delivers top entertainment and inspiration. You make your music seem effortless and smooth and fun. And now I think I need a little bambino ukulele.

Excellent as usual. Great vocals, picking and sliding too. Boy it must feel strange putting down a baritone and picking up a sopranino?

gee thanks Rox, that's so sweet of you to say these things mate. I appreciate it very much my friend. And yep, you need one of them little baby's for sure. so much fun. it actually fits in my jacket pocket so no excuses for not taking it everywhere. Was funny yesterday, we took Zackie down to the local park and there were heaps of little munckins there...they were totally fascinated with the baby uke, we had a ball. :)

ha ha, cheers brother. Sure does feel weird. Just been at my mum and dad's for a couple of days...I took down this one and the baritone...very different instruments no doubt. Had them sitting next to each other in the loungeroom and it did make my daughter laugh to see them side by side. Talk about the long and the short of it... :)

thanks Bruddah! No this one is the little ohana sopranino I told you about...looks a bit bigger than it is in the video i think because of the weird camera angle. Takes some playing though cause of the small frets...them dang diminished chords and some of the 7th are a bit harsh...he he. Thanks for watching mate and the nice comment. :)

What, you shaved for your mom? Nice.
Anyway, I agree with everyone else...you just "gots" it.
