Well, it has been nearly two months since my last post (simply to busy getting my book together) and it is also nearly a year since I made this site which is fantastic. I originally created this site for the brilliant Beatnik and his Ukulele music teaching software and with in doing so I took up the Ukulele and began to learn myself (slowly and not to good ha) but I thought I would post again for people looking to learn the Ukulele with Beatnik.
Just heard this on a radio the other day and really liked it so I just had to hunt it down. Every one remembers the song that was written by Prince and song by the talented Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares To You, a beautiful song and classed as a classic.
Well I heard this version being played on the Ukulele by an Australian singer-songwriter by the name of Dan Kelly and I loved it. Have a listen, it is very cool, very chilled out version of this song and again making the Ukulele the king of instruments.
I have seen just a couple of bad reviews for the latest music adventure by the great Eddie Vedder and these bad reviews have come by the hard core die hard fans of Pearl Jam who just cannot comprehend what Eddie is up to, but, to music lovers and also Ukulele fanatics, this is truly a beautiful and personal album and I love it.
In recent weeks I have only come across Amanda Palmer who is formerly from the group The Dresden Dolls but has become a solo artist, or as announced on her blog on Tuesday 26th, may now have a new band called “8 in 8″ and have just finished recording a new album.
I have been attracted to her talent and also to her interest in of course the Ukulele.
I have come across some cool videos (below). She is a very talented lady I must say. She has been involved in theater as seen from her musical production The Onion Cellar.
