    Default Season 443 - HICCUPS!

    hi folks and welcome to season 443 of the ukulele.

    this week - and following on from the fun season that was 336 -
    is all about short songs.


    your challenge (as it was that week) is to record a song in 60 seconds or less!
    anything goes. lots of fun kids songs, cheeky folksy ditties, punk and pop, or cartoon themes and on and on it goes...
    you could also write an original, or record an instrumental arrangement,
    put a poem to music, or present an abbreviated version of a longer song, etc. the only limit is the constraint of your imagination!
    there is also the album joo and i made from season 336 that features
    69 songs in 54 minutes from each seasonista who contributed so you
    could also cover one of those performances.

    a couple of links to get your creative juices flowing:

    COMPILATION ALBUM FROM 336: 69 SONGS 54 MINUTES!

    SEASON 336 PLAYLIST

    usual start and finish times apply
    hope you all have a lot of fun w/ the theme everyone
    please listen to as many songs as you can and comment as you can
    Andy's awesome season 442 continues for another day too so no
    need to jump ship yet.

    We once put on an evening of thrash metal - Arena, the BBC arts series no less, came along to film it: "Earache Records proudly present: Bolthrower! Intense Degree! Extreme Noise Terror! - and topping the bill, Napalm Death!"

    I had Napalm Death's set list stuck up on my office wall thereafter - 23 songs in 30 minutes. - if anyone's looking for somewhere to start

    I loved this theme last time as well ... great idea to revive it, Jon! Assuming there is no song limit?

    Just like the last time, here's a couple riffs I've been playing around with recently that are probably never gonna make it into proper songs so I decided to just improv around them.



    Edit: how many years I've been doing this and I messed up the video tag?

    This is not directed against women but to anyone who is consumed
    by how they appear to others in public. Bukowski was an alcoholic
    street fighting gambler and he made his reputation by being a low life
    bowery bum. He just did not care about the image of himself,
    but he did care about the things he wrote. And I am not particularly
    concerned about wearing a 100% pure virgin acrylic Davey Crocket hat
    that I got from Ms Louden.

    The first time you did the 60 second season I was a bit dubious. By the end of the week I was completely won over. Good on ya Jon Boy. An original.

    Lucky with music... unlucky in love... or so the story goes
    What is Beethoven drove a red sports car and picked up chicks
    from Sunset Boulevard... what music would he have written then,
    and would it have helped him to find someone to love?
