Midnight in Harlem

This is one of those songs that can move you to tears.  I just wish I could play it as well as Derek Truck, but I guess we all want to play as well as he does.  Midnight In Harlem... enjoy.

I Just Want...

This is an old Willie Dixon song.  Muddy Waters once recorded it, and it basically speaks for itself.  Enjoy.

Bored Purple

"I am bored."  "This is so boring."  These statements are heard frequently around our house.  What I think the girls really mean is, "I don't want to do that." or "I don't like that."  The statements re heard so often that I decided the sentiment needed to be honored in a song.  I hope you enjoy it.

Uptown Funk (ukulele cover)

First and foremost, may the fourth be with you.
Now, this is a birthday gift for my friend Sabrina.  When asked what she wanted for her birthday she replied, "a ukulele recording of uptown funk."
Obviously, I was happy to oblige.

Shake It Off (ukulele)

I was messing around one afternoon and this came to me.  So, I decided to record it.  I mean it is almost guaranteed to make you smile...

Walking Major

This little melody came to me the other afternoon.  King of fun.  Open tuning, and slide, who could ask for more.

Old Love

Have loved this song for a while.  Thought I should just do it.

Monday, April 6, 2015


I love George Harrison, and I love this song.  After all, Sinatra called it the best love song ever written.  So, why not record it on the ukulele?  I did.

Day Tripper

I've always loved George Harrison's guitar riff on this song, so, why not try it on the Ukulele?  I think it works.

That Thing

This is a little melody I had in my mind for a while.  I would whistle it around the hall at work, so I thought I should record it.  here you go.

Love Is All Around You

I have written another song.  This one is my version of a hippie love song, complete with mandolin and slide guitar.  I mean, of course right?  Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

When I'm Sixty Four

Was browsing at Sam Ash the other day and came across a Beatles song book.  That got me to thinking.  I should record "When I'm Sixty Four" on the ukulele.  Then as I was playing it I realized I can play the intro and some of the riffs with a slide.  So, I did.  I hope you enjoy it.

Let It Go

Well, the girls have been singing this one for a long time now.  So, I figured I should just join them.  I have recorded my version of Let It Go.  I hope you enjoy it.

Old Man Gad

I was messing around the other day and this folk style song came about.  So, I decided I should try to flush it out and record it.

Love me so Blue

This song just kind of hit me on Thursday, so I wrote it down and now here it is.

The world may not need another love song, but here it is anyway.

Sucks to be Blue

I was talking with a friend and she said she was having to clean out her sing snap account because she was down graded to blue.  She then said, "it sucks to be blue."  And viola, there is a song idea.

This has a lot of slide/dobro cause that's what I love.  I hope you do as well.

Glory in the Highest

As I have been working on some songs for the girls I have come to realise what I write about and what matters has shifted.  No more songs about dancing, or girls, or parties.  Now it is family, friends, and God.  I guess that is called growing up.

Anyway, here is my latest song.  It is my version of a praise song.

Color Me

A while back I got an idea for a song.  It was kind of a "Cat's In The Cradle" song about my daughters and the things that life throws at you.  Well, here it is.  I am not Harry Chapin, but it comes from the heart.
