    SOTU 605 - Gold In Them Hills

    Joo - thanks for the crash course in Ron Sexsmith. Until this week I'd only heard a few of his songs here on SOTU. I enjoyed listening to his work and trying to find a song I could play. What a great singer and lyricist! I tried a few of his original songs and could not pull them off. Then I...

    SOTU 604 - Love & Heartbreak

    I did a love song earlier in the week, so it's time for heartbreak. Here's The Man Who Can't Be Moved by the Script (2008). I love that it tells a story. Going back to the corner where I first saw you. Gonna camp in my sleeping bag. I'm not gonna move. Got some words on cardboard, got your...

    SOTU 604 - Love & Heartbreak

    Here's Maggie Rogers' "Love You For A Long Time" from 2019. That same year, Rogers was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy Award. I've always liked this song so I attempted it despite the pesky E chord. Good practice! ;)

    SOTU 603: Speed!

    I'm in the midst of some major house renovations, but I had to take a break from all that. I really needed some restorative ukulele time. Here's "Speed of Sound" by Coldplay, first released in 2005 (can it really be that long ago?). My mic is packed safely away so I couldn't try any...

    Season 600 - Seasons And Seasonings

    Here's "Lost Stars" from the movie "Begin Again". Both Kiera Knightly and her co-star, Adam Levine, sing their own versions in the movie, which is one of the plot conflicts. I prefer Kiera's take. "Tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young / It's hunting season and this lamb is on the...

    Here's "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson. I'm getting better at the multi-tracks - singing, harmonizing and tapping! Fun stuff. Thanks for hosting, Joko.

    The Seasons Collaboration Exchange

    Hi Wendy - I’d like to give this collab a try! Can you give me some tips on how to do it? Im thinking this: I watch your video on my laptop while wearing headphones. I record myself on my phone trying to stay to the right side of the screen. I PM you the video and you somehow stitch it...

    SOTU 598 ... "THERE ARE FAIRIES AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR GARDEN!"

    My repertoire of supernatural themed songs is rather sparse. I had no idea before this SOTU that that was a deficiency that needed to be remedied. Here are some aliens!

    SOTU 595 ~ 100 100 100

    I'm back for my second Season! For my first season last week, I just videoed myself on my phone. This time I used more technology. I used my phone to take video, but I used a separate microphone to record the vocals. Then, I figured out how to add a second harmony track and synch the audio to...

    Season 594 - Berries, fruits & Japan

    I’ve been lurking on SOTU for a couple weeks. I’ve finally got the courage to record and post. Here’s a song by Halsey from 2019. She has a sweet reference to a sour apple right at the beginning. 🍏 I’m hopping this embedded video works! Halsey : Finally // beautiful stranger

    Aloha, y'all!

    I’ve visited my local stores: Strait Music and the Guitar Center. Both carry ukuleles < $800 but there was only one higher end uke there (on consignment). There is another store, Fiddler’s Green, a bit further away but I’ve heard they are moving and have no higher end ukes at the moment...

    Aloha, y'all!

    I just attended my first Austin Ukulele Society last month! I had a great time. The organizer, Bob, is a great teacher. I’m glad your cousins are keeping it weird. I love that about Austin!

    Aloha, y'all!

    Yes, I am very lucky! My husband is very supportive. You could call him an “enabler”. :) I will check out that thread! I would love to try out many tenors before I buy, but I don’t seem to have a local source that stocks exceptional ukuleles. UAS whispers in my ear, “that’s ok, you may need...

    Aloha, y'all!

    Aloha from Austin, TX y'all! I've been lurking for a few weeks. I've enjoyed learning from your discussions, especially the ones about Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome. I contracted a fairly severe case when my Ukestra colleague showed up a few months ago with a Kanile'a D-series. Until then, I'd...
