#357 - How Much is that Yagi in the Window



Introducing.....Yagi!! He's our wonderful dog we adopted a few days ago! He is just the best and will even put up with me playing a ukulele while he's sitting on my lap, there seems to be no end to his patience and sweetness. He has a touch of kennel cough, so you will hear a little hacking, but it's already getting better. You may also notice a new background, that's because we are in our new house! So many new wonderful things in our lives, now just need to carve out some time for more ukulele playin :)

Artist - Hank Williams

I'm loving this new Outdoor Ukulele!  It's durable as all heck, made in Oregon and has a lovely, bright sound.  I'm excited to take it out and about this summer without worrying about it getting beat up and tossed around.  I've seen them around in Portland, give one a try!

#353 - It's only a paper moon



Song - It's only a paper moon
Artist - Harold Arlen

The past few weeks I've been taking a really fantastic uke class at Artichoke music! It's been a fantastic experience; I've learned a lot and enjoyed meeting other ukulele enthusiasts. I take away so much knew knowledge from each class that I need to practice a lot more in order to retain it all. This is one of my favorite new songs that I have taken with me from our weekly classes!
