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.
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).
