    Something definitely right about an instrument so many women play.

    Whoops. No wonder it said “it seems you already said that.”

    Alec: Is there an echo in here?

  5. Woodshed November 14th, 2009 3:09 pm

    …echo in here?

    I love all of these, it’s great you bring light to them for us =]
    Loving the Paraskavedekatriaphobia song, made me smile, makes me wanna write my own quirky stuff and youtube it…
    (youtube it…)

    Jam: I enjoyed it as well – partly because I had a crappy day yesterday.

    (… day yesterday)

    …Top selection Al…loving all the laydees…especially Sophie Madeleine, wonderful…But Mood indigo, wow, that guy really gave that National Guitar a work out…was that a national uke…the bit that made me grin the most though, was that tiny dude playing that Big Assed Bass…

    I’m glad to see Tally Deushane and Kaylee the Ukulele here- I’ve been following them since their debut a few weeks ago, and it’s impressive how quickly they’ve been coming along.

    The guitarist with Mood Indigo is John Reynolds, a legend in the
    Southern California vintage music/dance scene, & one of my own musical heroes. A regular at Maxwell DeMille’s Cicada Club in Los Angeles,
    a good place to watch John’s awesomeness on the shiny National guitar & banjo is at’s Broadcast Archive. Start with the Oct. 4, 09 & May 3, 09, Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys shows, & the April, 12, 09, Rhythm Club All Stars show (as a member of the RCAS, he plays on their CD), but there are many other videos onsite that he plays on.

    (…he plays on)

  12. Hello Jodi November 15th, 2009 1:37 am

    Love Rev. He is serious as a heart attack but totally charming.

  13. live2tivo November 15th, 2009 7:18 am

    Wow! Thank you so much for putting my song on here! This just made my day!

  14. Emily November 15th, 2009 9:38 am

    Lovely selection. I really enjoyed Victoria’s air trumpet :)

  15. PaulC November 15th, 2009 10:21 am

    Yay to Shelley O’Brien and Victoria Vox!
    Live2Tivo was great fun!

  16. Marcelo November 15th, 2009 1:37 pm

    Nice selection! Thank you!
    Woodshed, that would be nice though if you consider posting Sophie Madeleiene’s The Stars chords, how about it?

  17. Woodshed November 15th, 2009 5:08 pm

    Nick: Yeah, I’m fairly sure it’s a National uke.

    Todd: Oh man, you ended the echo joke (…echo joke.)

    Acilius: She’s definitely got something.

    Ron: Thanks very much for the info.

    Jodi: And he can play a bit.

    live2tivo: Thanks for your contribution. Keep them coming.

    Emily: She’s really got that down. She should do it in every song.

    PaulC: Yeah, you like Canadians. We get it ;)

    Marcelo: Don’t be too surprised if it shows up.

    (…shows up)

    Great to see some Turkish folk on here!

  19. Alan November 16th, 2009 12:02 pm

    Umm… Victoria Vox … Yan yelego in drag? No far too pretty!!
    This mouth trumpet seems to be catching.
    Sweet voice as well. I love it!!

  20. Woodshed November 18th, 2009 9:40 pm

    Bossarocker: If there were more Turkish folk on ukulele, I’d feature it.

    Alan: I’d say Victoria wins in the mouth-trumpet wars.

  21. L.Bo Marie November 19th, 2009 8:08 pm

    TWO cork-towners on one Saturday???
    how lovely.

  22. Woodshed November 21st, 2009 11:31 am

    L.Bo: It pains me to do it after Steve’s comments pissed me off, but there’s too much talent there to ignore.

Got something to say?
