    Default Banish Misfortune

    It's not even St. Patrick's day but here is a traditional Irish jig that I think works pretty well on the uke

    Great arrangement and fabulous playing, Laurence! I've heard many iterations of that tune, but yours really captured my fancy. Thanks for the smiles!

    Wonderful, Laurence! That's some mean playing! I don't think you missed a beat!

    That almost got MY ageing bod out of the armchair and jigging around the room Laurence!
    Thankfully, for the sake of my health and wellbeing at my advancing years, your performance was great, but I managed to refrain from such physical activity! lol
    Well done buddy.

    Thanks Jan, it was a joy to play so hopefully some of that came across in the vid.

    Thanks John - I might have flubbed a few notes but I think a few mistakes add interest - that's my story anyway!

    Sounds really good, especially the double stops!

    Great playing and just love your style. The thumb pick really drives things along. I first found this tune in a book by a tin whistle player in Leeds. It was a popular session piece in the local music pub. Never heard it played on the Ukulele before......just gorgeous!

    Thanks again Mike, I first heard this tune played by guitarist Richard Thompson and it's been a favorite ever since. I am probably not faithful to the original melody but to my mind, these tunes are open to some interpretation.

    Fantastic. I was tapping my foot with your beats all along and had a hard time keeping up.
    A day without playing uke is a day not well lived.
