    Default Nightmoves (Michael Franks)

    Love this song from Michael Franks 1976 album called "The Art of Tea." Hope you like my rendition:

    Thanks, Brenda! I'm not good at it, but string-bending is a fun technique to mess around with!

    Thanks, Laurence! Yes, I agree! I tried Popsicle Toes years ago and have been wanting to give NIghtmoves a try for a long time. There's at least one more song from this album I want to try someday!

    Thanks, Jim! I didn't want to try string-bending on the Moore Bettah. I'm treating that baby gently! My Kanile's will remain my workhorse ukulele, but you haven't seen the last of the MB!

    Fabulous work John, I'd be keeping the MB wrapped in cotton wool as well!
    All the best,
    Campbell

    Thanks, Campbell! Yes, you don't want to ding or scratch an MB. But it'll be played!

    Thanks for the suggestion, Laurence! I'll check it out. I just found out Michael Franks has a nice album out, too!
