    Default Uke Lesson 15 - Island In The Sun

    Hello everybody! March's episode of Uke Lessons is up (and it's not even March yet!). Check it out:

    Uke Lesson 15 - Island In The Sun

    This song was discussed a few weeks back in this thread, which lists several takes on chords, tabs, and lyrics for this song.

    So hopefully we covered pretty much everything that needs to be said about this song (except for pinky mutes, which Aldrine will punch me for mentioning ). Questions, comments, thoughts, ideas for interpretive dances to this song? Post them below!

    Default Critique my version please.

    I play some of the local open mics here in Seattle, Washington. A couple weeks ago, I was delighted to learn that a new open mic was being held at the Alderwood Mall's food court. I work there! Not at the food court, but at the big store at one end, selling major appliances. I didn't do so well at my first performance. I sang Doctor Sparkle's "Flingin Poo at The Zoo"... Someone noted later, "You were singing about poo while people were eating?!?" Uh, yeah.

    So I decided to come up with a song about the Food Court itself!! Who better to sing about than those poor girls who have to wear that funny costume at Hot dog on a stick! I was looking for something to do when I came accross UU's singalong for Islands in the Sun... SO I changed some lyrics around a bit and came up with this song... which I plan on singing live in front of 50 people or so in just five days.

    First thing I gotta do is practice it constantly! Second, I need to nail that Amin7 chord better. That's a new chord for me. What else do you think would make this performance better? Be brutally honest, please.

    Aldrine: many mahalos for this. it was perfect timing as my cousin just returned from a quick trip to the philippines, was going through a little post-trip-back-to-reality blues and this was one of the songs that totally reminds her of this past trip.

    Joko: awesome - hahaha! "dip, dip!"
