    I really love the ladies this week. Camryn definitely just got herself a new fan.

    Have you ever heard of Peyrson? great ladies from France! Thanks to my friend Agathe (the one with short hair) I started playing -and loving- uke.
    Tell me how do you like them.
    Thanks for the time you dedicate to music.

    Hi Woodshed, Just a big THANK YOU from me here in Perth Western Australia. I’m new to uke I bought your Strum Patterns ebook and it has helped me a lot. In my ignorance I bought a Mahalo (Les Paul copy cos i like em) I am now putting loose $ into a jar for a new Uke around June, my Birthday present to me. Love your work Mate and look forward to more ukelele enjoyment. As I upgrade I will be handing my old one down to my 3yo Grandson, who has a Monterey but hey he is picking out Baa Baa Black sheep so once again thanks from us in the antipodes Michael

    Just seen James Hill and Anne Davison perform in Wellington tonight. Funnily enough he was sporting the same shirt as the one in the Heart Shaped Tattoo clip, too. A fantastic show, and if anyone has the opportunity to go and see them live then do it. Amazing stuff!

    Snojimbo: I hope he washed it between those two performances.

    Couldn’t tell. Didn’t get there early enough to be seated at the ‘uke-player mosh pit’ at the front…

Got something to say?
