So as a little reward for completing my 10,000 word, final year dissertation, I decided to buy myself a ukulele!
HERE IT IS!!
Ok, this is a cartoon interpretation of me looking ridiculously happy with my new hobby.
HERE THE REAL THING IS!
Again I look too happy and I can assure you that I am NOT NAKED in this picture. It very much looks like it. That would be a strange photo if I was!
I've learned quite a few chords already but I think I'm sending my fingers to an early arthritic grave because damn that thing is tiny!
Tunes I aim to learn:
- Pokemon theme tune: Because this sounds awesome, always.
- Over the rainbow - Isreal Kamakawiwo'ole: Why wouldn't you want to learn this?
- Always - Blink 182: As my favourite band, I would love to do a ukulele cover of my favourite tune by them.
- Tip toe through the tulips - Tiny Tim: I find this song hilarious and creepy at the same time but would be pretty cool to be able to play on the uke.
Under no circumstances will I ever play anything by George Formby. Sorry but NO!
