    Sound of Silence

    It's not perfect, far from it, but I've been meaning to record this song forever and finally got off my butt to do it! Let me know what you think :)

    Mumford & Sons - Reminder (Plus new YouTube channel!)

    After a break of far too long from making and publishing ukulele YouTube videos, I'm trying to kick my rear into gear by starting a dedicated YouTube channel for my ukulele covers and originals. First one is a song I've been playing a lot lately, Reminder by Mumford & Sons. Please check it out...

    Rocky Top + Story Time!

    I recently started streaming ukulele jams on Twitch, and I've been having a blast! I miss open mic nights and karaoke and everything about leaving the house, so I'm trying my best to substitute for it. Here's a quick clip of playing Rocky Top and explaining the story about how I got a hold of my...

    The Boxer - Simon & Garfunkel

    Just wanted to share a quick cover I threw together of probably my favorite song to play on ukulele, The Boxer. It's originally by Simon & Garfunkel but the way I play it is also strongly influenced by the Mumford & Sons cover (which is absolutely brilliant). All the best! -Phil...

    Wednesday Morning, 3A.M. by Simon & Garfunkel

    Once again, I dropped off the face of the earth! I haven't kept up with playing as much as I'd like since grad school is kicking my butt. But today while studying for preliminary exams, I decided to whip out the uke and put together a rough cover of one of my favorite Simon & Garfunkel songs...

    Pancho and Lefty - Townes Van Zandt ukulele cover

    Hey folks! I've been pretty absent here for awhile, but I've kept up playing open mics and writing music as much as I have time for along with my studies. I realized recently that I haven't recorded anything since I got my Mya Moe, and I wanted to rectify that! Here's a quick cover of one of...

    New (to me) uke day and a happy story

    Afternoon, UU! I've been absent from the forums for quite awhile, but I just wanted to give a quick update on the next big thing that's happened in my ukulele journey. Some time ago, I was on the waiting list to get a Mya Moe ukulele. I had been playing for several years and finally wanted to...

    It's happening!!

    Thanks for the kind words, guys! I'll probably use this thread to give infrequent updates on the process over the next few months, when I pick my wood and whatnot :) If anyone is interested, my inlay will be something along these lines: The symbol is a Chi Rho, one of the oldest symbols used...

    It's happening!!

    After years of dreaming and an agonizing wait, I've been moved off of Mya Moe's waiting list and onto their build schedule. My serial number is 1863, and my string date is April 6, 2016. I can't even explain how unbelievably excited I am to finally be getting the ukulele I've dreamed of for the...

    Teaching Uke!

    After weeks of phone calls and emails, I finally have a scheduled interview with a local music store for the position of ukulele instructor. This is a fantastic opportunity, as this music store is regularly voted as best music store and musical lessons provider in the county (currently the most...
