I use the 'fan' strum. And I do use that when I play You Don't Love Me Anymore 8)


So when will we get a new vid from you then, Laura? Surely you belong in the Uke Goddess Club too :D

:supz: :dance: :supz: Those were wonderful, biscuit! :clap: Do you have a link to the chords you're using? The first one with the finger picking is so beautiful. I tried to google it ...do you know how many songs there are entitled, "You Belong to Me"?!?!? It's a bit disturbing actually. :lol: :wink: Your fan strum sounds fantastic with the Pretenders song. :clap: I would have liked to have seen your hands as well. Do you use your thumb when you fan?

Wow, kipples. I guess you're not the first or only ukulele rapper. :o I like your vibe better though. 8) Her "got ukulele" shirt was choice! :thumb:

Nonch: I sort of cheat at the fan strum I think, cause I only use the nails on my ring finger and pinky :whistle: I might re-record to show you.... If I can be bothered 8)

ETA: No, wait. On closer inspection I also use my middle finger. No index or thumb though!

I have no idea who has the original 'You Belong To Me', but I covered Kate Rusby's version :D Check her out on YouTube ;) She is amazing!

I'll have a look to see if I can find the chords for it ;)

Finally! A video!!!! :supz:

Promises Promises, by Incubus

http://youtu.be/vYkqGUkxJlk


I know, it seems like a random first video, but it's for a song cover contest. The more views I get, the more chance I have of winning the contest and meeting the band! So, click away, friends! :D Feedback is much appreciated also.

DM, great job! :clap: You have a really beautiful voice. :nod:

I grew up listening to the Duprees singing You Belong To Me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvLmxQqEa0I
It's a much more straightforward version of the song. I liked your version of the bridge. It was really different from what I was used to.

It was also recorded by Jo Stafford, probably before the Duprees.

Thank you, Nancy and Nonch! :D The last couple of months have been a lot of fun, and hard work. I will definitely be making more recordings and videos soon. I have a lot of original songs that I'm trying to re-learn on uke.

Biscuit, I liked both your vids but I LOVED :heart: the Pretenders one :D :rock:
A fan strum and a chunk?! :supz: Sounded brilliant :thumb: I'm putting it on my mp3 player :nod:

DM, that was beautiful :clap: Your voice reminds me of Des'ree. Don't leave it so long for your next one.

Hey kip. You should rework the words of your rap "White and Nerdy" and change it to a song about Bret's latest short film...call it "Hot and Dirty" perhaps? :lol:

In the mean time I'm desperately trying to find a weird as advert from when I was a kid that totally reminds me of Black Sands.....

Also in the mean time....don't think it would be right to not post this here..

:woohoo: :woohoo: OMG, that was brilliant. First off in all seriousness...the finger picking!! Bravo! :clap: ...and your lovely voice over such a range! :o :clap: :clap: But oh, that song is so funny and it made me laugh out loud with delight and astonishment that you could sing both parts and blend them so nicely. Well done. :clap:

Did you find tabs for the intro somewhere?
