    Here is my take on the Sting song with this title, Shape of my Heart. I used my SG ukulele with my Honeytone amp as it does not have very much sound without amplification.

    Been a great and interesting season Rick! Thanks for hosting! Star in the title of this one. It's a Ryan Adams song called "When the Stars Go Blue" Joined here by Joo Joo on harmony vocals and she also did the artwork and put the video together ~

    A lot more people call the shape a diamond than a rhomb, right? So here's some Pink Floyd.


    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    ALL I'VE GOT TO SHOW

    i spent 7 days creating the world
    the sun moon and stars
    and all I've got to show

    from your rib i created her
    from her womb i created you
    and all i've got to show
    is a cross

    i am a square peg
    i am a square peg in this round whole

    for 33 years i walked
    among you upon this earth
    and all i've got to show

    i covered your sins in my blood
    gave hope when all hope was lost
    and all i've got to show
    is a cross

    you can't turn a circle into a square
    you can't buy love when love isn't there
    and all i've got to show
    all i've got to show

    Did you know that singers go onto Sesame Street with (amazing) educational-ish versions of their hit songs?
    This is James Blunt’s ‘My Triangle’ - perfect for this week’s theme!

    An original about a boxer for ya Rick -"The Night the Square ring caught him"


    That Friday night the square ring caught him
    To it’s canvas, to it it’s heart
    A right cross from “The Colt” Ramirez
    Broke the dam apart

    Legs turned to spaghetti
    Roller coaster eyes
    Planets were revolving
    In a blood red fighter’s sky

    Chorus
    There’s not much sound or fury
    When a journeyman goes down
    No lights in any tunnels
    No diamonds in the lost and found

    When he woke the world was different
    At newspaper words it was strange to look
    And why for no good reason
    His coffee cup just shook

    Commissioner said “we’re sorry Jim
    Time to hang those old gloves up”
    Dr Roy says” That boy
    Has been knocked out once too much.

    Chorus

    He’s kinda young for the old folk’s home
    But he doesn’t mind it there
    Meals come like clockwork
    And they let him sit and stare

    Tonight he is Floyd Patterson
    Cleanin’ up Archie Moore
    And the shadows that he boxes
    Crash heavy to the floor.

    Ahoy everybody.
    I made a little Uke during the past two days from an old neck and a drawer (see photo)
    Uke 1.jpg
    After that I ended up doing a 'star' shaped song
    The song starts a minute into the video so you can skip straight to there unless you want to listen to me ramble.

    Cover of Sweet Pea by Amos Lee, on concert Flea. 1 take into cell phone, for better or worse.
