Ukevember 2016 Day 5: Falling Slowly

I must admit I’ve watched a lot of American Idol. I never caught all the seasons, but I did see the season where Kris Allen won and he played “Falling Slowly” by Glenn Hansard on piano during the season. That’s when I fell in love with the song. You can also see my new little newborn in this video. 🙂

Ukevember 2016 Day 4: Fur e Reggae

I found the sheet music for this tune on Colin Tribe’s page. It take Fur Elise and makes it into a Reggae tune. Yeah! For all you classic players out there. Also, my eldest son is here joining in on #ukevember.

Ukevember 2016 Day 3: Out Loud

I had heard this song on the radio here in Arizona. I’ve also heard this song on a Pandora station I created for Eric Hutchinson. It’s also been played by musicians on patios at the restaurants here. It’s got a great groove and should be played everywhere!
Here’s my take.

Ukevember 2016 Day 2: Many the Miles

Ah, Day 2. I’ve had this song on my radar for years. I’ve used the melody in slideshows for my wedding reception, and for my brother’s 26th Birthday video because we live far apart. It’s a great song for the friends and family that are miles apart. Plus, Sara Bareilles is an amazing musician.
I’ve also gone live with #ukevember this year. Time to catch up, eh?

Ukevember 2016 Day 1: Kanaka Waiwai

Aloha! For my followers, I DID start #ukevember this year…I’ve just gone live with it on Facebook. I do want to keep up with my blog and add the chords here, so keep up with me 🙂
I chose this song as I’m working on the pronunciation of the Hawaiian words and we also had it play at our wedding when I was walking down the aisle. 🙂
Enjoy and get our your ukulele to play a song every day in November (Ukevember as I call it)!

Bare with me as I figure out how to embed my FB live videos. 🙂
