    youtube accounts?

    Here's my channel for prog rock ukers. My kids got me to start it after surgeries restored my ability to play. A torrent of newly recorded tracks led to the suggestion that a new channel to replace my old dormant one needed to be launched, so @Thommy_B was born. Here's a recent video featuring...

    Flatwound on a UBass - advice please

    Never liked rubbers on my Ubass. Kala round wounds for me. All the recordings on my YouTube channel (shameless promo...) have my cigar box Ubass strung so if you want a listen. It's not that hard to get a flatwound tone with them as there's always a preset on my Fender Rumble amp that will give...

    The Uke Opera "Thommy" pt2

    Right? My son showed me this AI image generator and I started asking for Dali styled pics. I asked if he ever heard of Dali and he said, "yeah, that's who made the software, Dall-E." Then a Who's On First routine ensued...

    The Uke Opera "Thommy" pt3

    In part 3, Thommy is on an endless desert southwest bus tour and has one too many diner stops along the way. Tired of the desert, tired of the mobs, he blows up when he doesn't get his coffee, steals a car and goes on the lam, ending in a cliffhanger... literally... even I don't know what's...

    The Uke Opera "Thommy" pt2

    As a sequel to Back To The Underground, Thommy, after selling his soul in The Underground without approval, finds fame after awaking from a dream he can't shake... or something... Anyway, it's the CBUbass and extended soprano CBUs L/R trying to sound like a Hammond B3. Visuals are AI generated...

    A tribute to The Underground

    Next one! I did do the eye blink bit for the last half. Sometimes I like hitting the beats

    A tribute to The Underground

    It was Dall e. It is sluggish for sure, shuts down from too much traffic, etc. I just prompt with something like "A man with long dark hair follows a dirt path with an ukulele on his back. The path is lit by fairies with purple berries. It adds the rest! The fun thing is the spelling it gives...

    A tribute to The Underground

    After a long absence, I am celebrating my return with a tribute to the UkuleleUnderground. I love this place. Great to be back. My son got me to embrace AI for the video...

    The Uke Opera "Thommy" pt1

    In part 1, Thommy returns to The Ukulele Underground to join the Fourmyle Circus after selling his soul for mad skills, like Robert Johnson at The Crossroads... or something... This is in NO WAY derivative of the rock opera spelled "Tommy", as Thommy is is not deaf or blind, just dumb. With...

    "Good Friends" feat. Thommy_B!

    Here's another one. This was fun to overdub onto.

    "Good Friends" feat. Thommy_B!

    Greg is starting to load up some songs on his YouTube that I appear on. Here's "Good Friends" with me sounding like an organ on the rhythm track and adding the little "You should run a party" bits. I'll put up anything else here that has with ukes as they appear...

    Another Prog Uke Mashup

    Thanks! Yeah, I do want to put something like that together on something. My collaborator is a busy guy, so I'd have to go to him to shoot actual sessions. We send tracks back and forth, recording in ProTools. But I have thought about documenting a solo session with overdubs, etc. Definitely...

    Guys!! I got another achievement!

    Impressive!

    Another Prog Uke Mashup

    Thanks, Patty! That's Greg on the lead vocals. I'm doing the stacked backgrounds. He's frankly not crazy about them. He's a less is more guy. I'm a more is more guy. He's warming up to it, but he's also going to do a more soulful R&B version some day. We'll see... ( >=< )? ... come on...

    Another Prog Uke Mashup

    Greg sent me a lead vocal of Ain't No Sunshine over his drumming and an organ playing Sunshine Of Your Love, and I laid one fingerpicked uke on the left, doubling it on the right with one of my wooden picks, added my cigarbox ubass playing the Mississippi Queen riff, and used Let's Spend The...
