    Default Help Me ID This Song

    Can anyone help me identify this song? Mika Kane frequently uses it to demonstrate ukuleles. Warning: the song is a real "ear worm" - once it gets stuck in your head it's hard to dislodge.

    Thanks for any help,

    Can't help you ID the song, but that's a nice sounding ukulele, and different looking.
    Sigh, the Ukulele Friend website can stir up UAS.

    The song is the old Hawaiian standard: I'wannabuydauke

    Seriously, that is a neat, unusual uke. Way more than I'd pay for any instrument, but It looks like it'd be interesting to play. Props to the builder for doing something so different. The player in the vid is great.

    Write to Ukulele friend, maybe they will provide the music to you. Or, post this over on the song help forum...

    I contacted Ukulele Friend via Twitter, and they said that was an improvised song.

    It certainly sounded familiar to me, but I guess someone needs to slow the video down and make some tabs! (No, this is not me volunteering!)

    There were some vamps thrown in, maybe that is what seems familiar?

    Cluze, Thanks for contacting them about it. The reason it sounds so familiar may be that Mika Kane not only uses it to demonstrate instruments on Ukulele Friend's site, but also on The Ukulele Site. It's not that difficult to deconstruct, but the fact it's so catchy made me want to uncover its origin.

    I detected teases of Freight Train, a song that has been played on HMS videos before.
