If you’re a hardcore Twitterer, you can keep up to date with my latest blog posts on the Uke Hunt Twitter feed.

ukelution ukulele t-shirtMy preview of the Ukelution T-shirts stirred up some interest, and now they’re available to buy. There are also some rather nice iPod cozies.

Bushman Ukulele are hosting a Ukulele Luau at the end of May with performances from Julia ‘jaaaaaaa’ Nunes, Rachel Zapen and Narciso ‘Seeso’ Lobo and other uke related shenanigans. That makes it two uke festivals going on at once.

Ukulele Review’s Play It Forward Contest is taking of well. There are already plenty of entries including a mammoth four part lesson on Something from Dominator. There’s still plenty of time to enter if you fancy getting your hands on a new Flea and, much more importantly, a full set of my ukulele ebooks.

Bob Dylan and Amy Winehouse on Uker Tabs.

Now that you know how to read tab, you’re ready to tackle learning to read music with Uke Thingy.

Silent screen legend Clara Bow on ukulele.

SweetAfton23 has been uploading he pick of the comments she gets on YouTube. One of them has her kicking against the uke haterz, but most are just hilarious perverts.

Well, what would you expect a Flea to look like in Bette Midler’s shop at Ceasar’s Palace?

    Tiki King left a post (on FMM??) about Bette’s uke but I hadn’t seen a picture.

    I’ll say what I thought then… hope to god she’s had a pickup stuck in it because that poor laminated top sure ain’t moving anymore!

    Hobbit: Yeah, I don’t think tone was the main consideration putting that thing together. I keep meaning to spend more time on FMM, but ever time I go I pissed of with the general user unfriendliness of the site and leave.

    zym: I’m always happy to lower the nation’s productivity.

    Fun? If I got comments like that I’d be carrying around a tazer. Luckily, I’m pig ugly.

    I think being one of the hottest youtube comwhores evurrr entitles you to cut comments short.

Got something to say?
