Abbe May, Michael Wagner, John King and Others

Loads of great videos this week including John King, Ohta San, Aaron Keim and the most charming version of Stormy Weather you’ll ever hear. The big surprise was Abbe May. Usually, she makes PJ Harvey-style alternative rock. She does a great job with a uke.

I haven’t been posting Bosko and Honey’s Ukulele Safari on here because I assume everyone is watching it anyway. You are watching it, right?

    I have just bought my first uke as I heard that Abbe may song ‘The Storm’ on you tube and really want to learn it. Could any one help me out with chords to this song to give me a head start?

    While I like Marie’s version of Stormy Weather, I LOVE what Danielle ate the Sandwich did with it.

Got something to say?
