Thread: Don't Know Why - Ukulele Solo

  1. #1

    Default Don't Know Why - Ukulele Solo

    Norah Jones classic song "Don't Know Why" arranged as a solo piece in the style of the great modern Jazz Guitarist Pat Metheny! Played on a Kanile'a tenor ukulele with low G tuning. Just spent a month or so remodelling our kitchen so took the opportunity to record there......which is surprising really because when I was working on the kitchen I was sick of the sight of it!

    I hope you all enjoy,
    Mike

    I think we all try to emulate who we like..........And I like Pat Metheny. Especially his time with Joni Mitchell, Jaco Pastorius and Lyle mays!

    Strings are Aquila Nylgut with a Fremont soloist low G!
