I finally got a few free minutes during lunch to make a video showing off the Kala pocket ukulele.
I think that the powers that be must have known I only had a few minutes, though because they kept effing with me. I'd play the song perfectly and the cat would run by and mess it up. Or, the shot was great and my brain turned off. It seemed like it was something every time, so finally, I just decided that I was going to do one more and that was it. Of course my freaking knee was covering the pocket uke the whole time though. Doh!
Next time I'll be more careful to let you see the uke while I'm playing it. Anyway, this song is one of my favorites to play (even if I can't always remember all the words) and my son Simon really loves it as well. He usually sings the chorus with me if he's anywhere near while I play it. So, that's pretty fun. He and I have a Ramones cover band also, (we're called "Second Verse, Same as the First") so maybe I can convince him to make some videos with me of that action.
Anyway, if you have ever watched George Formby play this on Youtube then you'll notice that he uses different chords. I learned it this way and I guess it just stuck so there's no undoing it now.
