UKULELE!

Banter about the rhythm of the movement of the feel of the melody of the rhythm of the feeling of Bret and Jemaine's music. Here you will find the largest known collection of Conchords lyrics and chords.

I love Sophie Madeleine as well! Beard Song is one of my favorites to play. Some other favorites are Sea of Love (Cat Power version), Folding Chair (Regina Spektor), I Am Not A Robot (Marina and the Diamonds), Build Me Up Buttercup (Julia Nunes/The Foundations), and Vampire (Antsy Pants).

I have a binder full of songs, and those are just a few of my favorites. Good luck with B! You can do eet! #thumbsup#

I cannot feel the keys beneath my left hand as I type this because I've been playing so much...I'm really into Sophie Madeleine. I've learned about five of her songs. I think they have most of her stuff on ukulelehunt along with her videos.

Anyways...this is my uke. Van. Short for Vanuatu. Isn't he sandy and gorgeous? I can't keep my hands off of him. #love3# Van is a Lanikai concert. He actually caught the Vegas FotC gig with me. Van and I were both disappointed that we didn't end up in Bret's arms that night. #haha# #cry# #sadlove#

I also recently aquired a Fender tenor. He has a much deeper sound, and one steel string!

I love seeing everyone's ukuleles. I would love to know what your favorites songs to play as well. I've been playing for well over a year now and I STILL can't play the B with any consitency. The first string is always buzzy. >:(

Good luck on your videos, unabridged! #cheer#


Those are beautiful!!!! #loveeyes# #loveeyes# #loveeyes# #loveeyes#

Here are a few pics of Timmy playing one of my ukes #aziz#

This one is from Hawaii and is shiny and beautiful but I don't often get the chance to play him. :(

http://ukulelehunt.com/
really good site with email updates of new choons added as well as videos from other uke players.
uke hunt is an important resource for F.U.C.

http://www.ukulele.co.nz/
the official site of the WIUO #love3#

http://www.alligatorboogaloo.com/uke/
more songs with chords

http://www.chordie.com/
searchable by artist and you can even choose uke tuning and can get it to transpose the chords without you having to think #aziz# this is good for avoiding E chords >:(

http://www.get-tuned.com/ukulele_tuner.php
ukuleles are always out of tune so you can try and keep yours as in tune as possible here.

and not forgetting

:P



Adding to the ukulele sites, this one is one of my faves #excited2#

That was pretty awesome laura. ;D

I finally created my ukulele specific youtube account. I thought I would share if anyone is interested. I only have one song up right now, and it's not all that great because I'm sick right now and my voice kept cracking at the end.

I've finally joined Flighty Uke Club! #excited#

I bought a soprano ukulele a couple of weeks ago, borrowed a book with chords from Vesna and I'm learning my first song, "Wholly Molly" by The Phoenix Foundation. #excited# I was too shy to tell you about it at first, because I was afraid it'll end up with nothing, but I heard some complements from my housemates' kid's nanny, so I got more confident. I've got one man audience! #lol#

Here's my baby, Laka by Vintage #love3#

Image

and it's got inbuild tuner! #excited2#

Image

I bought it on ebay for £50. I saw the same model in an internet shop for £80, so I think I made a good deal.

It's the cutest thing I've ever had, apart from my cats.
