If you’ve been following this blog, you might remember that I wrote a ukulele instrumental to celebrate the New Year 2010.
For the language anecdote, I had named it Year Shift because I had the Norwegian word årskiftet in mind. It was just the result of me experimenting on my Fluke, and playing along a melody I ‘discovered’ and liked.
If anybody had told me that my tune would be covered one day, I would have thought they were out of their mind.
Guess what ?
My friend Al from Uke Hunt has done just that. And he has changed my ukulele ramblings into a really nice tune :
Al, thanks a million for this cover, it is very inspiring and shows me different ways one can improve a tune. You rule !
The first thing I have decided to do is to look back into Al‘s excellent ebook How to Play Ukulele Chord Progressions. I believe I bought the ebook too early in my ukulele learning but now I’m determined to find out about those nifty chord tricks that can change a tune for the better !
Got to go, I have an ebook to read and a uke to strum !
