    Another great selection, Al! I wouldn’t have wanted to miss any of them. Though I must admit I’m surprised that none of the videos from the Corktown Ukulele Jam that TorontoUkes uploaded the other day made the cut. If you haven’t had a chance to look at them yet, I particularly recommend Sunny Widerman’s cover of “Levon” and Zoe Henderson’s original “Cryin’ in My Sleep.”

    Is there anyway some one could figure out the chords to Solito Solo?

    Thanks and I love the site! I’ve been playing for about 3 years, but just found this site like last week! Fantastic and thank you.

    Al, somehow I’ve missed that Polish ukulele video. Thanks for sharing it !
    Acilius, thanks for prolongating the Saturday uke tube with the Corktown Ukulele Jam. I quite liked Nick Tustin’s Glory of Love.

    Armelle: I’m pleased to be of service!

    Personally disappointed that that last youtuber made the sensible decision not to make the “I Will Remember Uke” pun.

    I love Craig Robertson! :)

    Acilius: I did watch a few of them but none of them really did much for me.

    Max: Thanks for the kind words.

    Armelle: Thought that one might catch your attention.

    Carrie: What sort of idiot makes the uke/you pun?

    Aimee: Me too.

    There were a total of 25 new video clips uploaded on the Corktown Ukulele Jam (torontoUKES) channel last week – a significant undertaking that involved a huge amount of effort and generosity on the part of all involved, performers and organizers alike. What a shame that 25 performances were evaluted on the subjective merit of “a few”.

  10. Woodshed October 19th, 2009 6:52 pm

    stevius: Are you seriously suggesting I should watch every single ukulele video that’s uploaded to YouTube?

  11. stevius October 19th, 2009 7:31 pm

    Woodshed: no. but I do suggest that writing off 25 on the sense you got from a few is unfortunate.

  12. Woodshed October 19th, 2009 8:15 pm

    stevius: I agree it’s unfortunate I can’t watch all of them but I fail to see what choice I have.

  13. stevius October 19th, 2009 10:03 pm

    Woodshed: well, the bottom line is that you are doing fabulous work and amazing job of tracking the ukiverse as we know it. Cheers and thanks for that. Keep on keeping on!

    Great selection! Helen Arney is definitly funny! Thanks!

  15. Woodshed October 22nd, 2009 12:31 pm

    Marcelo: She is. I hope she does more uke songs soon.

  16. Acilius October 22nd, 2009 4:03 pm

    @Stevius: I agree that the bottom line is that Woodshed is doing a fabulous job. Not many people do as much good for as many people in full-time, high-paying positions as he does putting this site together. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

    As for the Corktown Ukulele Jam, well, why not set up a site of your own and post about it there? I posted some of my favorite Corktowners on my site.
