    Default You're So Square

    Well, LimosineLil already posted a version of this, but hey, great minds think alike. I tried this out on a number of different ukes but it seemed like my new Kala archtop worked the best. Hope you like it.

    Well, lets keep count, shall we? ONE!

    I can't recall another week that had a similar [STRIKE]excuse[/STRIKE] prompt that would [STRIKE]justify buying yet another ukulele[/STRIKE] allow for fulfilling the week's task.

    So - shapes have corners, right? Hope that’s not too tenuous a link to the theme, Rick? So here's a different one, originally by one of my all time heroes, George Michael:

    Hello again, Rick ... a bit of a quickie, but an event which had to be celebrated! Yesterday, something amazing happened - England won the Cricket World Cup, defeating New Zealand in a thrilling final and by the narrowest of margins. We have never been victors before! (My apologies, this will mean absolutely nothing to anyone on the other side of The Pond ... but, believe me, to us it is HISTORY!!!) I hope that a ball - being round - will qualify in this week of shapes, and I played it on my Gretsch Camp Uke, which is also round. (I seem to have more than my fair share of strangely-shaped ukuleles, which probably says a lot about the fact that I don't take my uke-playing ability very seriously ... thank heavens!)

    I also have a 2-fer: different shape uke is a Flea, and the song with a shape is a cover of Tom Petty's Square One, from his 2006 Highway Companion album. Big Petty fan here, really miss that guy. Especially like the lines in this song "Can't sell your soul for peace of mind" and "Always had more dogs than bones". What a songwriting gift he had.
