Chrome Music Lab

I had every intention of finally getting started on another great new post this evening, but I got distracted. When I opened my browser, I couldn’t help but notice the text at the bottom of the page telling me, demanding me, to explore how music works. So I did.

Ukulele Russ Live Performance Review

I hate to call this a review, because I hardly have the credentials to do such a thing. What I can do is relate my experience as a regular Joe/ukulele enthusiast; the everyman, enjoying a few drinks at the local dive bar. I can’t say I’m unbiased though, because I already like the guy simply because he’s rocking the ukulele and playing the kind of songs you can’t help but sing along to. But, review I will. My opinion is as useless as the rest, so let’s get on with it. Continue reading “Ukulele Russ Live Performance Review”

Reddit

Since I’ve started the website (blog), it’s become abundantly clear to me that I need to up my social media game. So today, I jumped into I’ve heard about Reddit; seen links and sharing buttons on websites (in fact, I just added the Reddit sharing button to my posts); and stumbled across the occasional provocative Reddit-related headline.

But no, that will just have to wait, because tonight I want to talk about Ukulele Russ. I will keep it local, though. Continue reading “Ukulele Russ”

James Hill

Now that I’m “officially” getting this website off the ground, I feel like I have an obligation to get back in to the uke scene and get to know the old, and new, online resources. I jumped back on the Ukulele Underground Forums and caught a James Hill video.

After watching this, I headed straight to his website and checked out more. I recommend you do the same. Continue reading “James Hill”

Ukulele Hunt

One of my favorite ukulele sites is Uke Hunt (Wikipedia might refer to this as a “Gag Name”). And I’m not ashamed to say that since this is my first website ever, I might use his site as a model (but also ukulelego and Got a Ukulele). Imitation is flattery. Eventually, I’ll branch off with my own ideas and do my own thing, but I think that website has a good thing going and I would like to use it as a diving board.

The tabs on Uke Hunt are great. In fact, I discovered my favorite uke tab (Naked As We Came – Iron and Wine) at this site. Continue reading “Ukulele Hunt”
