    Stevie Wonder's "Dont You Worry 'bout a Thing" for concert ukulele with singing; overdubs of Ashbory Ubass, whistling, and secondary vocal. I think this is the most melismatic song in my repertoire.



    thanks for hosting, bonesigh!

    Here was my first thought. Would have liked some more time with it but my left hand was getting tired and i think i was winding the family up. Won't get chance to multitrack again this week so here's what I have.

    I have more overtly melisma-y songs planned for the rest of the week.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    My album is releasing on the 26th of June!

    Good afternoon folks! Pa started us out with a baaaad song that is so gooood. Perfect an well played and sung. Course I don’t think Brian is capable of anything less :-)

    Jim Yates, I think “We’ll Be Together Again“ will do.
    Pretty much any song that draws out a one syllable word.

    Croaky K...I don’t know if I’d call it “warbling”, which is more of a quavering vocal or bird sound but....why not? It kind of is ( ;

    CharlieB that was sweeet and right on the mark! Loved id! Not sure why you have “baby” in the house and I’m not sure I wanna know, lol!

    Flatbaroque you are a crooner for sure and had me swooning with this blues number. Bluuueee is on of my favorite words to hear melismised (I wonder if that’s a word?).

    Liz I ho ooo p you’ve got the idea noooowwwww!

    Joko! Goood one!

    Perfect clarification Keith!

    Hendulele....if you can do that...go for it! That guy cracked me up!

    Wee_ginga_yin, ba dum bum (cymbal sound)! I wonder how you would spell that sound? Anyway, I’m loving the jokes as well as the songs maybe people could keep them going.

    And Wee, what a lovely song for the week! You would think after all these years I would remember peoples names. I am very baaaad at that!
    I might have to learn this song I liked it so much. Well done :-)

    UkeFoote, melisma does indeed love company!
    And....WOW! That was a great selection of song for the week. Your always so good! This Mama ain’t worried bout a thiiinggg...except that you might not do another song this week!!!

    Rab11....is this a Nirvana song? Hence the tee shirt. Well, no matter, well done and executed! Super!
    Here’s another thing I’m wondering....is babyyyy the most popular melismatic word sung?

    I’m delighted with the diversity of songs for the week. Looking forward to many more as one can go to any genre and find some melisma.

    I’m thinking if anyone doesn’t want to sing but you can play an instrumental of a well known song we would know the melismatic words to. Gi ahead and do that.
    Heck even if you want to just strum a song, do it. Just tell us what song it is and I’ll sing along at home ( :

    OK, I believe I am caught up.

    Thank you for all the submissions so far. All I have to do now is add them to the Looking forward to moooorrrre music!!

    SOTU 483 - "He's Gone" - Grateful Dead. This song has a somewhat bizarre back story. It was written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter after the band's manager Lenny Hart, who was also the father of GD drummer Mickey Hart, disappeared with $155,000 of the band's money in 1970. He was later arrested in San Diego in July of 1971 while baptizing people and using the name "Reverend Lenny B.Hart". He was convicted of embezzlement and sentenced to six months in prison. Mickey Hart was so ashamed of his father's actions that he left the band and did not resume playing with them until 1975. In subsequent years, the song has evolved as a tribute to friends and members who have passed away, including Jerry Garcia himself.

    Thanks for hosting, Janet!

    Old Chinese proverb says: “Only the brave or the foolhardy attempt to cover an Annie Lennox vocal”. Don’t worry - I know which category I fall into!

    Took a good few attempts to get the vocal halfway near acceptable here, then accidentally went an octave higher than planned for the outro! Luckily, according to my YT channel stats there aren’t many viewers that ever get that far anyway!

    Thanks for hosting Janet! It's good to see you take a turn and join in

    After discovering Cat Stevens with my first girlfriend, his music was a regular presence in my life for around 10 years. When I started playing the uke a little over 4 years ago, I learned one of his songs, and was reminded how much I really liked his songs. I think this one has a few clear examples of what you're looking for this week. Cheers ~

    Talk less, play more . . . .

    Alright! A few more gems to add to the list!

    Stanley I enjoyed that very much. I never realized this song is comprised of the popular 50’s chords.
    Well done sir ( :

    Marcsuke, I enjoyed every minute of this song. Well done. Thank you for the background on this as I was listening I wasn’t sure what the story was about. I listened to you first before I read what you had written.
    I did not know that story about the Grateful Dead.

    Dell! I heard this song yesterday for the first time while looking up angel songs. I love angel songs. Anyway, I wouldn’t even have attempted this song myself.
    You did a fantastic job, I mean really good :-) Thank you!

    Mezcalero brings a fine, fine cover of “Wild World” by Cat Stevens. Not to be missed. I was living on a smile throughout this cover!

    Don’t forget to comment on Seasonista vids and give them a round of applause!
