I recently discovered Lisa Hannigan on Modern Ukulele’s blog where he posted the latest video clip for her new song, Knots. There’s two differnet video versions for this song, but I prefer this one relaxing out on the ocean:

Every now and then I stumble across a ukulele cover on YouTube worth posting about, this is one of those moments. Phoebe and Jack are a young sibling duo from Northamptonshire, England and this is their version of Jessie J’s former UK number one single, Price Tag. Enjoy…
Ahhh the British summer. I’ve been on holidays for a little while and on my travels I picked up this neat little book at a local bookstore.
The Little Black Songbook: Acoustic Hit Songs. It’s meant for guitar and has the guitar chord fingering at the top of each page, but as long as you know the equivalent ukulele chord it’s all the same. I’ve printed out a copy of my chord chart to stick in the front for any chords I haven’t learnt yet. The book is nice and small, almost the perfect size for travel and will probably fit snugly in my uke travel case (hopefully anyway).
There’s also a Hit Songs Volume Two, plus Beatles, Dylan, Oasis, Folk Songs and many other little black book titles in the series! Should keep me busy!
