Original Ukulele Song::I Need Your Light

 

Woke up to a rainy morning so I thought it might be a good day to record a new, original song titled: I Need Your Light.  This song is inspired by a new friendship layered upon a newer friendship.  My girlfriend was telling me about an experience she had with a great friend in the dark of night.  On the bus ride home, I began to turn over what a GREAT metaphorical experience she had with this good friend and how this awesome friendship helped her walk through the night.  Thus, this song.  I hope you enjoy it and it encourages you. Happy Dappy Monday, Ya’ll and cheers to every single friendship that helps light a way through the darkest of nights!! 🙂  🙂

Original Ukulele Song::Cup of Tea

I know it’s been a bit since I’ve posted an original song but here’s one I recorded a few days ago called, Cup of Tea. I’ve been really trying to concentrate on learning cover songs but this song kept bubbling up so I just decided to take a break and record it quickly. As with mostly everything I do, it’s obvious that I have no clue how to really record but it’s all in good, clean fun! Hope your summer is wonderful wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!! 🙂 🙂 Thank you for following along my amazing uke journey. It’s been almost 5 months since I picked up the little 4-stringer… and I’m more infatuated than I was at day one! 🙂 🙂 Happy Dappy Friday, Ya’ll!! 🙂

A very special thank you to Steffen O. (stoman.org) and Stefan S. for helping me with chords and song arrangement. These guys continue to help me in a multitude of ways I could NEVER full express!! Sorry about the bad video recording… standard fare from me!! 🙂

Lean, Look, Love::Original Uke Song

Some songs are more challenging than others. Original uke song, Lean, Look, Love is certainly was one of those as you’ll be able to tell but I still very much enjoyed the journey from concept to “print.” Ultimately, it’s about the long, never-ending journey (for me anyway) of what truly matters to me in this lifetime. 🙂 Happy Blessed weekend and I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed working on it.

(The next few weeks will be a little less productive (I think anyway) as I prepare for an international trip; however I hope once I’m settled, I can work on everything a little more consistently. We’ll see! Thank you VERY VERY much for following along and for being incredibly encouraging and kind to this fledgling singer/uke enthusiast!) 🙂 🙂

Original Song for the Ukulele::Thaw Out::Inspired by Tony Cas {StratCas} Music

 

9 weeks of uke playing and feel more and more grateful each day to have been encouraged to try this tiny instrument of happy, happy, joy, joy. 🙂 I hope wherever you’re at in your journey; you’re loving it too! Keep on keeping on, Folks! 🙂

I wrote these lyrics and melody a couple of years ago against a beautiful backing track created by Tony Cas of New York. He is an amazing musician and a nice friend. Thanks, Tony! 🙂

{**EDIT! I accidentally reset something incorrectly on my tuner so it’s off two semi-tones–in order to follow along, you can either re-tune your uke strings to D tuning or two-semitones down. I’m very sorry and will definitely try and correct it for the future so I have the correct chords! Thank you!}
