Bosco from Ukulele Cheats does a lovely rendition of Redbone by Childish Gambino in a beautiful forest setting. It would be wonderful to be able to play in such a location all the time. That is the convenient thing about a small ukulele. You can take it with you when you venture into the great outdoors. There is usually a log or rock to sit on and play while you contemplate nature.
Here’s the accompanying tutorial for this song:
Young British performer Amelia Coburn gives her own interpretation of David Bowie’s Life on Mars with her ukulele. She has a lovely voice and a fresh style. It’s great to see such an enthusiastic ukulele player.
It’s a cold and rainy Sunday in Melbourne. We need some ukulele warmth. That one man band from Edinburgh, Pockets, does a terrific rendition of Jet’s Are You Gonna Be My Girl with multiple ukuleles, bass guitar, cajon drum and tambourine. Love his studio.
Don’t panic, it’s a ukulele duo. Just discovered South Australia’s Ukulele Death Squad (Ben Roberts and Julian Ferguson) who will be playing at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival on 9, 10 and 13 of August (Here is a link if you want to see them play). For a taste of their performance here they are doing Misirlou made famous by the movie Pulp Fiction. Fantastic playing.
Many musical genres sound great on the Ukulele. India’s Shanay Shah performs Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You then segues into two popular Bollywood songs. Will get you dancing.
The Staves, UK sisters Jessica, Camilla and Emily Staveley-Taylor, perform folk rock music with beautiful harmonies. They combine ukulele with guitar which makes for sweet sounds. Magical.
A lively ukulele version of The Allman Brothers Band hit song Ramblin Man from the Ooks of Hazzard. Great finger picking.
