    Daddy Take Me Fishing

    I've been writing songs for nearly three years and now have 14 published on my main youtube channel, "songandancedaisy" as well as several "unlisted" songs that you need links for. This is one of my latest songs, all about going fishing with my Dad when I was a child. I thought perhaps I should...

    You Don't Remember Me - original song

    I've been writing songs for nearly three years and now have 14 published on my main youtube channel, "songandancedaisy" as well as several "unlisted" songs that you need links for. This is my latest song, a rewrite of one I did a couple of years ago. Written about someone I used to know. I...

    Formby style split strokes tutorial

    With great humility, because there are loads of Formby players much better at this than I, here's a little tutorial on the syncopated Formby style - I did a couple of Formby songs on Season 216 of the Ukulele earlier this week, and my fingers were not properly visible - a few of the folks wanted...

    Season 212 - Play this one for your Mum!

    Wow. Already, reading the posts so far, I have this great lump in my throat. My Mum died almost exactly nine years ago, after a long life, the latter half of which was a constant struggle with her health.... you name it, she'd got it... heart troubles above all else. We were close, and though...

    New Uke Day! DJ Morgan "Morganino" mini-pineapple uke in solid maple

    I am so thrilled with this little uke, I can't believe it's mine - I wanted a pineapple uke, I wanted a maple uke, I wanted a sopranino - and suddenly - I have all three in one uke! It is a superb little thing, the prototype for a new line in ukes for Dave Morgan (DJ Morgan Ukuleles, England) It...

    Dark Days of Frost

    I wrote this song last November, early one morning. It's very much of the day on which it was written - it's self-explanatory. I hope you like it! I think it's one of my better songs... and I do hope that the tune is my own!

    It's 10.00 am at Hill And Midnight in Hawaii

    I wrote this yesterday morning for my friends in Hawaii - they know who they are! A New Year song fondly remembering a warm welcome and good company in Hawaii in May... I have to say I'm not happy with the melody - it's one of those tunes that you just know has been written before, perhaps even...

    Song Help Request The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

    Aw CeeJay, why the stress? No problem at all! I made a mistake with the fret numbers and you pointed it out... and I was glad you did! Casey and I had adjourned to facebook for a chat about it as the conversation would have been awfully long-winded... I know you're not an insensitive bugger! :D...

    Song Help Request The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

    Casey, I'm working on it right now....it's pretty well what I said, for the first few lines of music anyway.... but playing it all through, in the second run of the melody John goes into such a flurry of embellishments on the tune that it's really hard to grasp it... I've sort of worked out the...

    Song Help Request The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise

    Hi Casey! I don't play this song - I've always loved it though, especially the way John Bianchi plays it - shame he doesn't seem to play much uke these days! Since I've been having lessons I find it easier to spot chord shapes - this arrangement seems to be built mainly of 4 finger chords; major...

    New Uke Day! DJ Morgan spruce and birdseye maple soprano

    I couldn't wait to get my hands on this - as soon as Dave Morgan had got this uke finished and photographed I knew it had to be mine - I saw it, played it and snapped it up. It plays like a dream and it's loud. And it's beautiful. When I bought on of Dave's mahogany concerts just a few months...
