Mark ‘Fingerstyle Solos for ‘Ukulele Nelson has a new book of slack key uke arrangements out: The Uke Buke: Learn to Play Slack Key Style `Ukulele. You can buy it in paper form on Amazon or, in pdf form, on his website.

This week’s most exciting news: Garfunkel and Oates have been signed up for a Conchords-style show by HBO.

James Hill is putting together a new album and is taking pre-orders for various levels of goodies.

Eddie Vedder is planning to release a “batch” of ukulele songs.

I’m never sure if I’m allowed to mention Buke and Gass (since the baritione uke has been modified into a guitar) but they’re one of my favourite bands and the moment and this session on NPR is too good not to mention.

Some quick videos: Ralph Shaw makes a very brief appearance in The A-Team. 2001: A Ukulele Odyssey (Via Got a Ukulele). A handy place to write your ukulele chords.

And a long video: Skynt The Musical: A musical with songs in Cornish including a uke song at the 10 minute mark (Thanks to Jack).

Why can’t all ukulele lessons be like this?

Pictures: U-900 effects pedals, “I play the ukulele” “Wow, that’s really interesting”, New Drawin’ Ukelele, Ukulele boy.
