    Ukulele Mike's arrangement of Blackbird by The Beatles/Paul McCartney.

    Although it was tempting to play this on one of my Blackbird ukuleles, I hope it sounds nice in high-G on my Santa Cruz mahogany concert. Thanks UU!

We had just a few days before became friends and starting talking to each other, plus Mike being younger then me got to me. I have ordered and received his Chord Melody books 1-3. I think they are great. I really hope his books are always available and all of his u-tubes. They are a collection of the best learning material I have ever seen in the seventy years since I first started learning clarinet at age 10. I hope someday soon to be able to post a song on here.
    This tribute to Mike is very, very nice. Thank you.
    I am glad you found this thread at last. I hope you will participate in this thread too. Yes Mike's daughter is managing his business. You can still buy through the same website.

    Kevin, That's another beautiful uke you got there. It has a very nice sound to it although it is not a blackbird. Mike's arrangements are all meant for high G but you can get away with a low G tuning on some songs.
    Your skill has improved so much in a short few weeks. It's good to see you continue posting video and one is better than the last. Another fantastic video!

    Great job there Kevin.....anything by the Beatles is fine by me. Your Uke choice also spot on. Lovely warm tone. Mike Lynch would be proud!

    Kevin that really was wonderful.........one of my favorite songs and you did it justice my friend. That Santa Cruz is one of the nicest sounding re-entrant ukes I have ever heard, it's a keeper.

    What are you using for recording equipment, the sound quality is excellent
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!

    Dave, you have an impressively good ear. Because of this thread (thanks, SoloRule and Camsuke), I've started doing a bit more video recording, and I just decided to upgrade my recording setup. This video recording of Ukulele Mike's Blackbird arrangement was my first use of Apogee's new Apogee Mic Plus. I just plugged this new Mic via USB into my MacBook then recorded the video using the free QuickTime player that's built into Mac OS X. Just a raw recording, no effects or anything. I think the gain was set a tad too high, but I'm learning. Thanks!

    Dave just turned up his hearing aids. That’s all


    He does have good ears. He knows a good uke when he hears one.
