    Default Your Virgin Song

    Thought it might be fun to hear what you learned as your very first uke song :-)

    Mine was HOME ON THE RANGE.

    Five Foot Two... Grandma's favorite song. She played it a zillion times on a 30s model Johnny Marvin Harmony uke, which I have now.

    The intro to 'Postcards From Italy' by Beirut. Odd, because it includes a hammer-on which is a little complicated for a first stab, but because it's a song I like a lot it was instantly satisfying and encouraging.

    'Losing My Religion' also made me smile because I could here it coming even when I couldn't play a thing. If you're brand new and like REM, give it a stab, it's fun.

    Cocaine Carolina.

    I still keep the video around to remind me how much better I've gotten.

    I think it was the arrangement of Somewhere Over The Rainbow on that ukulele.de site. I had already been playing guitar for a year or so.

    This Land is Your Land.
    Chiun: It would be better for you to eat this can than what is inside of it. Why must everything in this country be coated with monositi-... monosoti...
    Remo Williams: Monosodium glutamate. You can't even say it.
    Chiun: I can say "rat droppings." That does not mean I want to eat them.
