Jake extols the ukulele:
Another nice version of “I’ll See You In My Dreams” this time from the Dollis Brook Potato Slappers…(a familiar face ?) We’ll forgive the BIG ukulele…this time!
Stunning playing from “Waitswatcher” !!
Not a new video…it’s from the “Bosko & Honey’s Ukulele Safari” from 2008 but its such fun I’m putting it up anyway!
Ukster Brown “This song was written by Marcy Klauber and Harry Stoddard in 1929. Annette Hanshaw probably had the first recording as you can hear hers from 1929 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUblD3… . When I first heard this version I immediately thought it would make a great country song and you can hear Jim Reeves do just that here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gzkE_… This song was a request from Chris in the U.K.
There is a free practice sheet at www.ukesterbrown.com for your musical education and enjoyment. This practice sheet is in the same key that Annette sings it in so you can play along with her….”
Gerald Ross: “I call this waltz a generic ethnic tune. You can play this at an Italian, Greek, Polish, Jewish or any European wedding and each group will claim it as their own.”
Howard Rugg discovered an old ukulele that turned out to be one of the original ukuleles by Jose Do Espirito Santo. Jose was one of the Portuguese carpenters who started making the first ukuleles in Hawaii. A terrific “find”.
