    Sandi: Glad you enjoyed it.

    Another fine selection, especially – to my ears – Skinny Lister. Have I missed the ukes on the Janelle Monae, or were its other obvious charms enough to make the list?

    Mark: They’re a very fun band. They have even better songs without ukuleles in!

    I’m pretty sure the first instrument you hear (doing a back and forth with a guitar) is a ukulele. It does get a bit lost in the mix as the song goes along though.

    Mandy: That’s awesome! I love that the second half of their videos is always them doing something very silly.

    santiguana: Happy first uke day! I hope you enjoy it.

    Mark: You’re very welcome.

    Would it be too much to ask for chords to “Love in Monochrome”? I’ve had the song on repeat for ages and it’s just so pretty.

  13. Woodshed September 25th, 2013 7:41 am

    Angie: There’s a pretty good chance I’ll be doing one of Sophie’s songs once the new album is released.

    Do you plan to do chords for Dance Apocalyptic?

  15. Woodshed October 3rd, 2013 11:09 am

    JJ: Maybe. I do like the song a lot but it doesn’t seem to be all that popular with ukers. The main riff is G – F – C
