    Pumpkin Blues

    So I got to thinking that now Halloween is over, all the poor old pumpkins are surplus to requirements. This is a sad thing :( I think that pumpkins must surely have the blues: The uke used for the slide part is a Riptide from MGM :D

    STOLEN: Martin Backpacker Uke (UK)

    Hey all Just thought I'd post this here, in the small hope that someone spots this stolen uke on a "For Sale" board somewhere. I was lucky enough to win the Baron's Blues contest and won his Martin Backpacker uke. Sven from Argapa Ukes had put a new top on it, with an unusual double...

    Chordsheet Generator HELP!

    Dear Geniuses of UU, I'm really hoping you can help me. A long time ago, I stumbled upon a webpage where you could paste in lyrics and chords, and it would generate a lovely chordsheet, complete with chord symbols ABOVE the text in the appropriate place. You could turn this: Some[C]where...

    iPad Mini Ad Parody Silliness on a Stylophone

    I was inspired by CoLmesUke's fab iPad Mini Uke Parody: So thought I'd do a very quick lo-fi Stylophone version. Yes, I realise it's not a ukulele, but I couldn't begin to do...

    Uke Club start, Thanet, Kent, UK

    Good luck with your club :) BUT... :uhoh: it's a shame because the 2nd Wednesday of the month clashes with our club in Maidstone. I only mention it because I'm sure some of our members would love to come to both. Certainly if it didn't clash, I'd...

    He-Man Theme (Uke Cover)

    Hello friends :) I saw a heavy metal version of this on FB this morning and thought "that'd be hilarious on a uke". So I worked it out. Well, it made me laugh anyway. :uhoh:

    Winter Wonderland Cover

    I've been snowed in for three days now, but I'm using the extra days off work to play some music and do a bit of practice. The whole of the UK seems to have ground to a halt, and even tonight's uke jam is cancelled :( Here's my take on the classic, much covered "Winter Wonderland"...

    Pigeon Street Theme (Cover)

    Hello chaps I thought it would be fun to do another children's TV theme for uke and bass (well fun for me at least...) Here's the British cartoon "Pigeon Street" re-created 30 years after it was first shown. I used to love this when I was little. As you'll see I got a bit over-excited...

    Song Help Request La vita è bella - Beautiful that way

    Try this... Hello Harold I'm sure Maestro Lorenzo himself will be the best person to tell you what he played, but here's my best guess: A E7 Smile, without a reason why E7+5 A Love, as if you were a child F#m Bm F#m...

    Levellers - Beautiful Day Uke Cover

    Hey Guys After many uploading nightmares, I've managed it. I think YouTube may have taken a slight dislike to me... Anyhoo, the Levellers' "Beautiful Day": I get to use my new uke in this one - the mango soprano that Joe Spraggan built me. It's coming along nicely and I'll get a review up...

    Uke Comparison

    I've "accidentally" acquired two more ukes recently. Ooops. I thought people might be mildly interested to hear the differences between the different woods used: 1) Solid mango soprano built by Joe Spraggan 2) Vintage koa Kamaka soprano 3) Makapili concert pineapple (all solid hinoki top and...

    New Uke Day - Kamaka Soprano *sound clip in post #25*

    OK, OK – UAS has struck again. Ooooops. :rofl: So as these things happen, I was not searching for a K-Brand uke or anything really. I just happened to notice this one and it was too much of a bargain to pass up. It started at £300 but I got it for £150 in the end. ($239 USD or €170 EUR.)...

    Jimi Hendrix - Angel (Uke Cover)

    Hello all Sadly, today is the 40th anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix. I put together a cover of Angel as a bit of a tribute. I've tried not to be too soppy or sentimental, but Jimi's guitar playing is what made me want to also learn the guitar, which led via a plethora of stringed...
