    Jim wrote a fantastic song this week and it expressed pretty much how I felt/feel...
    I almost gave up on covering it as i didn't think I was doing it justice but I persevered and have something I'm OK with. I hope Jim feels the same way. There was his usual real fine uke work which I didn't attempt.
    A song by uke4ia.
    I can't recall your last name Jim but I think it starts with P. Would like to acknowledge you properly on YouTube.

    Thanks a lot, Brian. I'm honored. My last name's Persky.

    I try to make my original songs musically different from one another. On this one, I did it by messing with the rhythm of the first line in the verse. The singing starts on the upbeat, so I have to mentally shout "One!" to myself, then come in singing. I'm using a low G string. What sounds like a couple of different chords at the start is just me hitting A (2nd fret) and then C (5th fret) notes on the G string while I keep playing a G chord. This is what I was playing:


    Code:
    
    G
    I’ve always been someone who
    G/A         G/C            G           Am
    Misses everybody when they go on their way
              G                      D9 (2203)
    Some move on, others are called away
                  Bbmaj7  F
    In ways unforeseen, unplanned
                 Bb              C
    I keep their memory close at hand
    
    
    There was a time when 
    Just ‘bout everybody lived their life in one place
    Went their whole life seeing the same face
    Now I know people in different lands
    I may never get to shake their hands
                G              Am
    But they’re still close at hand
    
    
    I try to understand, I 
    Know that everybody has their own hills to climb
    They’ve got their tasks and I’ve got mine
    And if responsibilities should pull me away
    Know there’s part of me that always stays
    Stays somewhere close at hand

    Some danes might consider it sacrilege to play this song on ukulele, but I couldn't help myself!

    This song by danish band Sort Sol is very popular here, usually played on guitar - on some recordings with a mandolin in the background.
    But I tried to adapt it for ukulele.

    This one smacked me in the face and kicked my derriere. In other words it was dead obvious for me as one of my fave songs from the past....Mr Clapton's version from "Time Pieces" LP. Simple as a knife and fork.

    "Good morning" from deepest France, where it is - again - dark! (I'm not sure what time it actually gets light here at the moment.) Many thanks to Joko, CeeJay and Lynda, who kept the ball rolling "overnight". Please keep the songs coming in ... remember, there is no limit! Here is an awful "hand joke" ...

    Ooh, and I have just found a supply of jokes about hands ... all exceedingly corny or downright rude. However, herewith....

    I say, I say, I say ... why did they make the hand on the statue 11 inches long?

    Well, if they'd made it 12 inches, it would have been a foot.


    (This is a pre-metric joke.) Anyone want to join in???
