    Default Your Song (Elton John)

    I remember where I was the first time I heard "Your Song" and was entranced by it. By the time "Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player" came out, I was already a huge fan. Hope you like my rendition.

    Bravo, John! This is a great song for you to cover. Thanks for posting this one.
    I was wondering how you pick which ukulele you are going to record with, is it random or do you try the song with each one?

    Lovely job. I often play this song. I love the early Elton John songs from around that era.

    Like ? Love it John.
    You are such a great player and singer and video creator. Your videos are always a joy to watch. You sing with such charity on the words . I bet your students in your English class love to learn English from your singing.

    Thanks, Bill! Regarding my choice of ukulele when making videos, my real workhorse uke is my Kanile'a Soundmonster tenor. It's the one with the old KU logo they used to use. It's light, feels good in my hands, and I like the sound. It's the most convenient to grab, too, because it sits on a stand right by my desk. My other ukuleles are hanging on my wall. I've been thinking I should use my other ukuleles more often.

    Thanks, EDW! I really like "early" Elton John up to the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road double album. After that, he got a little bit too "glittery" for me, but then I thought he made a comeback with "Sacrifice," "Nikita," "Blue Eyes," and other great songs. All in all, one of the greatest pop music careers of all time.

    Thanks, Dave! Thanks, DBWhite! I really appreciate it!

    Thanks, Brenda! When I take my ukulele to class, sometimes the class seems appreciative, sometimes the students seem a bit indifferent. I still get a bit nervous performing in front of people, which is why video-making better suits me!

    I haven't been on the forum for awhile so it was nice to hear your latest video. This one is pure solo ukulele with voice- no overdubs Less is more! Cheers

    I'm still trying to determine how many George meant when he said "few"..

    Thanks so much for your great videos. I have been playing for 2 years and just "discovered" you. Your style suits me so well and you generally play in a key that I can actually sing in! What a treasure trove of wonderful tunes. Thanks! Jack
