    If I Told You, You'd Cry

    If I Told You, You'd Cry A solo instrumental thing. Just did this a little while ago after messing around with it for a couple of weeks. I had time and need to get it out of my system for a bit. Never let living under a flight path deter you from a complete take.

    Where Eagles Dare

    I have a day off today and nothing better to do than record a video of Where Eagles Dare by the Misfits. Played on an Ohana sopranino (with Fremont strings) tuned ADF#B for maximum evil and ridiculousness.

    The Sun & My Baby Blues - a bit of risque hokum

    The Sun & My Baby Blues A little risque hokum of the type I occasionally give into writing when I've got nothing better to do and don't feel like reigning in my creative process for more constructive purposes. It's a little blues number made 17.5% more authentic sounding by a head cold and the...

    A song I did for a dear friend of mine who's been going through a bit of a rough patch lately. She's seen it, so I pass it along since bad days are universal. Strong Language. Viewer discretion is advised. So play it louder. TTG

    Pick-up The World Pickups

    I was doing a bit of poking around exploring pickup options without much in particular in mind beyond knowing a bit more about what the options are. (Which is a good way to do some ukulele related shopping without any intentions of purchase) I came across a brand that I had not previously heard...

    Wally & May

    Wally & May It really is the first thing I ever came up with on an ukulele. The wife and I were and I were in HI for her grandfather's funeral and I kind of plucked the original parts for this out by ear on the Kumalae that the person we were staying with had laying around. It's gotten a bit...

    Milfoil Presentation Blues

    Milfoil Presentation Blues This was originally a little bit of music that I put together as a soundtrack for a group Power Point presentation that I had to do for a Biology class last semester. Unfortunately when we did our actual presentation we couldn't get the sound to work. But we did get...

    What It Isn't (- it's a riddle song)

    What It Isn't This is the other original from the event I played at last week (9/17/11) before a screening of "White Mane" at the Minneapolis Public Library as part of the Childish Films series. It's rather silly. You have been warned.

    What passes for a children's song

    I played for a children's film series this morning at the downtown Minneapolis library this morning and set up my laptop to get a capture of it. I forgot to record the first one, but here's one of the original's that I finished up especially for the event. I worked very hard on my diction...

    Ewe-bunctious - It's kind of a rag, I think

    A bit more playing around with the webcam and a number of takes later and I got "Ewe-bunctious" documented for the world to see with the least number of personal mistakes that would bother me but nobody else would notice. It really was the 2nd piece I concocted for the uke after I picked it...

    Winter Dragging On (tk 2)

    A quick video to try out the webcam on a new laptop. It's tad fast, but I'm slightly over-caffeinated this morning. May or may not be worth your time, but I have a few things I'll be making later on that I just may put more time into.

    Uke sighting : Little Big Planet 2

    In the Opening video at the start before the game loads there's a lovely young lady playing ukulele for whatever that's worth to you. Little Big Planet 2 Opening We've been playing it pretty solid for the last couple weeks and got a chuckle at this. My guess is that she's got a painted Ohana...

    Casanova Custom Ukuleles Carbon Fiber Uke

    Well, I saw a poorly listed eBay auction for a tenor uke with a carbon fiber back and the brand name of Casanova. I did some internet sleuthing and hooked that up with an Hawaiian maker named Stephen Sydow who showed at the 2010 UGH show. From that I was able to find this short vid by MGM at the...

    TCUO playing for Record Store Day at Hymie's Vintage Records.

    It seems like the first flickr sets for the day's events are starting to show up. This one fortunately has the money shots of the Twin Cities Ukulele Orchestra tearing it up in the .25 record room in the basement. It was a blast and if you're in the Twin Cities and jonesing for some vinyl...
