So, exactly one month ago, today, I made a ridiculous promise on Twitter that I'd release an original ukulele song every #MusicMonday. I haven't let you down let (although today it was close, as my chest cold has returned with a vengeance). I had planned to use my new Gorillapod and my FlipVideo to make a cool video and song, but my voice is wrecked today. See.. I've been sick for about a week, but regardless of that, I had to play a show on Halloween with my heavy new wave band. It was our 10th anniversary of our interpretation of the David Bowie Ziggy Stardust record. So, long story short, I feel like hammered crap today.
But.. never fear! I'm not going to break my promise (yet). Here is a ukulele ditty that I recorded for my new born son back in 2004. I had this concept in my head that I wanted to be the Leon Redbone of ukulele or something. You know, bolo ties, mint juleps and whatnot. Anyway, that explains the production on this recording, anyway. I still play this song all the time, it's one of the first songs I wrote on ukulele and I love to play it. Although, I play it maybe too fast these days. I like how jaunty it is in this version.
