Ukulele Festival videos from Paris and Taunton.

Kainoa at Easy Ukulele has been uploading a bunch of ukulele tutorial videos this week. Particularly interesting are the lessons on Chord Bending and Reggae Strumming.

Jen Kwok has made it to the last ten of the Comedy section of Famecast. With plenty of uker solidarity, she has an excellent chance of winning. All you have to do is register here. Then bookmark this link and click it once a day. EVERY DAY.

Last week, I mused out loud that I didn’t think there were any ukulele groups in Ireland. Tony got in touch and told me that he’s in the process of setting one up. If you’re interested, you can get Tony’s email address here.

Ukulele mp3s up for grabs: ilovefizzypop has Portishead’s familar sounding Deep Water, and Heartache with Hard Work has an adorable uke song from The Sinister Turns.

Theme from the Littlest Hobo on Uker Tabs.

World’s smallest ukulele T-shirt.

This week, Ukulelia mentioned the Kani Ka Pila Klip – a music stand that clips on to the end of your ukulele.

Karaoke + ukulele = Karauke.

Mel Torme on ukulele (he crops up at about 2:20).

Ukulego (thanks to Andy for that one).

Baby Blues Ukulele: Part 1 Part 2.

Improve your instrument with a vibrator.

Internet coincidences creep me out.

    Hey, Hey, Hey I just organised my first ukulele festival…cool. Thanks for the link.

    Any uke players who fancy a trip down to Taunton for the next Ukulele Revolution should drop me a line.

    I think I over-hyped both yours and Paris’s ukulele shebangs into festivals. Looks like a damn fine time whatever you call it.

Got something to say?
