Saturday UkeTube: Watercolor Paintings, Cousin Alice

Three old videos from people recklessly making great uke music without tagging it to make things easy for me: Watercolor Paintings (who aren’t, as I first thought, covering Mirah), Cousin Alice and Charlot Webster. Along with plenty of more diligent ukers.

One uker who didn’t make the cut is Aaron Carter (who is now, apparently, successfully wearing big boy pants).

Watercolor Paintings – Telephone Wires

Cousin Alice – The Weather Song

Charlot Webster – I Cry

Kevin Loh – Gypsy Ukulele

Mambor Musicians

BloodRedaXe – Chime

Todd Baio – Ananias, Ananias!

Snap Jackson & The Knock On Wood Players – Minor Setback

Joseph Ho – Isa Lei

Pholly – Sister Kate

    In case anybody likes Joseph Ho’s “Isa Lei”, the tab is in Mark
    Nelson’s “Fingerstyle Solos For Ukulele” book.

    gonna have to come back and check out the rest, but I absolutely loved the quirky (yet very melodic) tunes of the watercolor paintings and charlotte webster…..

    Good stuff. And speaking of Watercolor Paintings, are you still going to do a monday exposure of Lost Sound Tapes?

    Seeso: I’ve was humming that song all weekend.

    Minamin: I said what now? Sorry, must have had a brain-spazz – don’t remember that at all. I’ll get on it.

    Many thanks Al for featuring my video of Isa Lei. It’s an honour to be associated with such excellent musicians. I feel a little out of my league.

    My best wishes to you.

    Love that WCP video! We (Lost Sound Tapes) are releasing a Watercolor Paintings/iji split 7″ in about a month or so. Just sent it off to be pressed a few days ago. It’ll be ready in time for our 2 month long summer tourrrr.

    Also compiling a new ukulele compilation soon. If anyone sees this and wants to submit a song, feel free to email me!
