    Just got the same. I decided that I would take the risk that UU was not a bot, troll, spam, from the dark net, a scam... or something else really unpleasant and dodgy.

    Just looking to see what's already taken and what I can do. I'm just getting over a cold so my voice hasn't been in good shape and I spent yesterday going to IKEA to buy some storage for our upgraded conservatory and putting together same with the aid of my very competent daughter.

    Having a cold has meant I've been fortunate to miss all the hassle over the last couple of days

    Well, I have got back in by re-setting my PC clock to August 18th 2018, a few days before the security certificate expired. So now I can get back to listening...

    (5 minutes later)...that idea didn't work. With my clock set to 2018, I can't get a connection to YouTube, probably because their security certificate is up to date. Back to the phone...

    Season Of The Ukelele 360 Celebration of Song.......

    I usually put this info on the vid...but this one ha been an absolute bastroid....nearly didn't get made ,cubase dumped the master track after I had made the first mix down to wav form...the video/s would not play properly in Movie X5 and certainly would not synch for the two parts .....The air in my little room is BLUE.........So, what with UU being uncertified and access like trying to get over and under a barbed wire fence with a bunch of balloons , it's been a pretty sh*te day ....Hope you have fun watching.



    Sorry...Its "Back In The Night" for Season of the Uke 360

    Recorded this earlier today - only just managed to login to UU after browsers on PC, iPad and Android phone wouldn’t let me in.

    My Dad was really into the early Elton John stuff - this was one of my favourites as a kid:

    Song #20 on Steve's list. My whistler's acting up again, but here you go.

    Also, let me give a strong recommendation to the Martin Premium uke strings. I'm usually a Dapper Dan, er, fluorocarbon man, but these strings are nicely balanced. My flouros are just way too bright when I'm singing in a lower key.

    A long time ago there was a radio station in San Antonio, KLLS, "easy adult contemporary." I listened to it a lot in the late 70s/early 80s. Sometime around 1980, they announced that on Halloween night, at midnight, they were going to play, in full, without any commercials, the entire album of Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds."

    I had never heard of this album. But from what they said about it, it sounded like something I would like. So I sat right next to my parents' stereo with some blank cassettes on Halloween night and recorded the whole thing. I missed a little a few times when I had to flip or change the tape. For several years, I listened to this radio recording over and over.

    In the mid-80s, I began working as a delivery guy at a pizza place. I made a friend there who had also heard this album, although he didn't own it. Then came one day when he came to work and told me that Hastings, the local book & record store, had gotten in a single copy of this album. He told me he knew how badly I wanted it, so he would give me one day to buy it, and then he was going to go buy it himself if I didn't. I bought it. I made him a cassette copy, and also made a cassette copy for myself so I could play it in my truck. I had to go buy some special 100-minute tapes (50 minutes per side) so I could get all the sides complete. I still have it.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Steve and have a lot of overlaps in our music tastes, or perhaps he and my dad share similar tastes and that's filtered down to me.... anyway. One of those overlaps which is definitely with me, not my dad, is a soft spot for the Killers.

    Here's one Steve did very early on, which was tougher than I thought it would be. With added cameo from son of mine.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Connection problems appear to have gone - there is a thread in the Talk section where Rayan says they have moved to a new server to fix that and other issues.
