6 Day Riot, Whistlin’ Wolves: UkeTube

Some videos I watch and my critical faculties are screaming out that I shouldn’t feature a video but they make me giggle so hard I can’t resist (henceforth to be known as ‘oh, I wanna suck ’em and put ’em in my mouth’ songs). Two such videos this week.

At the more acceptable end this week are 6 Day Riot (I am expertly informed those aren’t vampires in the video, just goths – it’s so hard to tell these days), Howlin’ Hobbit (pick up the chords to his song on his blog), an excellent uke group arrangement of 7 Nation Army and a kid even I think is frickin’ adorable.

    Woodshed, tab for seven nation army would be amazing, thanks. And yes I’ve seen yours before you redirect me.

    Your ever punctuation using friend.

    krabbers: With you on 6 Day Riot. I think they’re due for a breakthrough.

    Herman: Yeah, I love it. Very much in the traditional US style. Great to see a kid who isn’t trying to sound like Miley Cyrus.

    shameless: I don’t know, there’s a lot going on there and I’m not sure how many people would use it.

    miss magdalen gives me some hope for the species, and especially hope that we’ll hear more from her soon–for as young as she is, she has a good sense for how to put across a song.

    Thank you for identifying and reporting the video of Ukulele Boudoir’s OneDay OneSong day ! It was an opportunity to create the first French conductor composed of 20 ukuleles, fantastic experience. You can find the sheet music arrangement of Seven Nation Army on our forum. You just have to be registered: http://m1p.fr/29q

    I’d like to echo what others have said about Magdalen Fossum, what an accomplished performance. I’ve tried and failed to work out what else is happening in the Seven Nation Army vid, if enough of us are interested could you be persuaded to tab some of the other parts please?

    Scrub that last bit, thanks Danton

    bob: Yeah, I hope we see lots more videos from her.

    Danton and jano: Thanks very much for putting them up.

    Riot reminds me of some of the stuff a buddy of mine used to do with his band in college. Basically put a 4 chord song progression with whatever was popular at the time.

  15. Magdalen Fossum November 15th, 2010 9:40 pm

    Thank you everyone for all the nice comments. And thank you to whoever posted my video up on here. I have one more video up on youtube under my name and there will soon be more. I just got a new ukulele! This is such a neat website, I’m looking forward to checking it out!

  16. Woodshed November 16th, 2010 11:58 pm

    Lindy Danny: They sound like a lot more than bandwagon jumpers to me.

    Magdalen: You’re very welcome. I look forward to seeing lots more videos from you.
