Day 7 of Ukevember!!!!!!! Tracks of My Tears by Smokey Robinson

I chose to hide another song in today’s video. A person who can attest to watching Hugh Grant films will certainly guess this one. It’s really kind of hidden, so comment below if you think you’ve got it.

You might also be committing to saying that you watch romance comedies. 🙂

Behind me you’ll see a painting by Margo Leitz. Beautiful, am i right?

Song: Tracks of My Tears by Smokey Robinson. Chords and Lyrics.

Day 6 of Ukevember!!!!!! The Big Bang Theory Theme by Barenaked Ladies

Took our lazy Sunday on the road today and we’ll get to take you with us in today’s video! Several places we visited you’ll see have amazing scenery! Don’t miss the interesting fact below. We learned something new today.

  • White Rock, NM – The Rio Grande is right behind me.
  • Los Alamos, NM – Named “The town that never was” after Oppenheimer declared the scientists needed a Laboratory with specific land requirements…it’s the only reason the city was built…AND **INTERESTING FACT* Everyone who was born in that time had a birthplace of PO BOX 1663, Santa Fe, NM instead of Los Alamos…even drivers license! No one was to speak of this place. Hush hush stuff. If you know anymore interesting facts about Los Alamos please comment below. 🙂
  • Abiquiu Reservoir, NM – Fantastic reservoir and red rocks in the distance.
  • Rio Grande River, NM – Standing on a bridge with a “Keep Off” sign that was supposed to prohibit us from getting our footage. We succeeded!
  • Taos, NM – Stopped by to visit a friend of Josh’s family and a bite to eat. Friendly, friendly.

Song: Big Bang Theory Theme by Barenaked Ladies. Chords and Lyrics.

Day 5 of Ukevember!!!!! Two Princes by Spin Doctors

Today’s song is about making choices, which love will you choose and why will you choose it? Today’s struggle is where to record these videos since the temperature outside is reaching “stay inside under the covers” weather. There’s a simple 4 chord song about choosing…you live, you learn, right?

Our song for the 5th of Ukevember is “Two Princes” by Spin Doctors. Chords and Lyrics.

Special kudos to people who can tell me what other tidbit of a song I squeezed in there.


Day 3 of Ukevember!!! Faster by Matt Nathanson

Day 3 of Ukevember and still cookin’ with the modern songs. This song makes me smile. I decided to play a song in duple and with a more complicated strum.

This was recorded at Journey’s End sculpture on Museum Hill in Santa Fe, NM. When I first moved here, this was the place where I had my first nose bleed (adjusting to the dry climates that are of New Mexico). It’s both part of history and a bit sentiment *chuckle*.

Today’s song is “Faster” by Matt Nathanson.    Chords and Lyrics

If you’re wondering what Ukevember is…listen in or poke around my blog.


Day 2 of Ukevember!! Hold You in My Arms by Ray LaMontagne

It’s the second post for Ukevember. This was recorded in Cornell Park, Santa Fe, NM. Some people brought their dogs out to play with them…it’s cold *brrrr* here. My fingers were freezing!

I’m playing “Hold You in My Arms” by Ray LaMontagne. Chords and Lyrics Here. He has a beautiful voice. This is a great song.

Felt like some people needed to be held in my ukulele arms today. Enjoy!

Day 1 of Ukevember! Promises by Morning Benders

Taken from our porch in Santa Fe, NM with a view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the background.

I’m playing “Promises” by Morning Benders.

And here are the chords and lyrics.
