    Yeah, me too. Our local Uke club is starting in person sessions again (outdoors, masks and social distancing) so ,today, I'm going through the song book reacquainting myself to the chords and strums.

    For more serious study, some exercises from a classical guitar text that can be adapted to four strings

    For fun/strumming, Teenager in Love (Dion and the Belmonts 1959); the lyrics scarred me for years.

    Ok, so I figured out the keys solo to Just What I Needed and just need to sculpt my synth pedal tone and play with the knobs a little.

    Anyway, my song for today is Green Day's Pollyanna. Spent some time to figure out the main melody this afternoon and I feel like I have it mostly down.

    I think I prefer that version over this one:

    But maybe I'll end up with a hybrid version. I seem to be doing that lately. Take part of one tab and another part from another tab, and then wander off from there.

    Such a beautiful song, and I'm a major Beatles fan.
    Great choice Joyful Uke. A Beatles classic.

    Hey Ken, Here's a tab I made for our local uke group. I should have left the second fret of the 4th string fretted in the fourth measure. I was trying to imitate a Scruggs style banjo.

    Works best in re-entrant tuning.

    Gonna start working on a new song. Somewhere Only We Know. I feel like I want to use to do a hybrid version between Keane and Lily Allen's. We'll see how it goes, but I'm trying to brainstorm for new songs to learn while at the office.

    Started working today (Sun. 6/6/21) on recording the bass uke track to add to the track the leader my group sent me singing and playing uke of her arrangement of Wild World by Cat Stevens. I will then upload it to my website so the other 40 members of the group can play along to prepare for our next session.

    Accidentally chunked a few bars of "Freight Train" yesterday. Made an interesting Reggie sound. Begs the question, did Bob Marley ever observe a freight train in Kingston?

    Dunno about that, but you got my wheels spinning, so I gave it a whirl with a kinda reggae strum, so I guess this is my song of the day. Thanks for the idea!
