    Default Jim Beloff (Flea Market Music) Needs Your Help.

    Those of you who have watched Aldrine's NAMM 2012 interview with Jim Beloff of Flea Market Music already know this, but for those of you who haven't seen the video, Jim is asking people to send him song suggestions for The Daily Ukulele Vol. II, The Leap Year Edition (366 songs!), the followup to FMM's popular The Daily Ukulele. Information on what Jim is looking for and how to submit song suggestions to Jim is in this video.

    Great idea! Says we have til the end of February to get our requests/suggestions in.

    What I like about the Daily Uke is that there is so much variety, from traditional, old timey, and pop stuff. Hope the new edition will carry a similar balance in material.

    But what I really, REALLY want is a sequel to the "Lute to Uke" book. Jim was right in saying there's not that much out there for classical, but this book was outstanding and there is so much more stuff to be transcribed. Tony Mizen did an excellent job on it and I'd like to see more.

    Our club, Scottsdale Strummers, uses the Daily ukulele on a regular basis. I like 20's and 3's music plus folk music. I'd like to see a folk edition.

    Thanks for the link!

    I emailed 3 song suggestions to him yesterday - one being "Summer Song", and the second is my favorite Ross Bagdasarian song, which translates very nicely to Uke.


    Most of you are familiar with the vocal group that got credit for the initial recording - Alvin and the Chipmunks. The song is "Witch Doctor".

    This is a great opportunity for ukulele clubs (like mine) to shape their next songbook. I don't know if Jim even knows about this thread, so you should email him at jim@fleamarketmusic.com with specific folk songs you'd like to see in Daily Ukulele II as well as your suggestion of an all-folk songbook.

    Jim is class act. Here is a video of him at the Island Bazaar in Huntington Beach the night before Aldrine interviewed him. I was fortunate to have been on vacation to see him there at their club meeting.

    I recently received a catalog from Flea Market Music that said the same thing. I believe FMM is targeting the "What do I get my ukulele-playing significant other/friend/relative for Christmas or Chanukah" market.
