Clementine – Sarah Jaffe (Ukulele Cover)
October 14th, 2013

Clementine by Sarah Jaffe is such a lovely song. 50 boys, 50 lies, 50 I’m gonna change my minds. It’s bittersweet and pretty sad. The chords progression for ukulele is Bb Gm Eb Bb.

So my Dad emailed me a recording of him singing and playing a Bluegrass song called “I will Always Be Waiting For You” (lyrics). I tried to figure out the harmony and recorded my vocals on top of it and mailed it back to him. He said it made his day.

I Love It – I Don't Care (Ukulele Cover)

Partying in Ghent

Listen: I Love it I Don’t Care (Cover).mp3

This song is great and should get an award for being a perfect pop song. This recording gets no awards and makes me laugh.

I'm Working on a Building (Ukulele Cover)
April 29th, 2013

Building a Porch in 1990

I don’t remember when I initially heard this awesome Bill Monroe song, but it must have been floating around in my head for ages until it magically popped up in my dream last night and I knew all the words.

Listen: I’m Working on a Building (Cover).mp3

Turns out, it’s criminally fun to play and sing. Plus the ukulele sounds an awful lot like a mandolin.

Girl from North Country (Ukulele Cover)

North Country Farm

I just found this recording on my computer of Bob Dylan’s Girl From North Country, which for some reason I thought was not good enough to put online. Silly me, this is so good. This is one of my favorite Dylan songs.

Listen: Girl From North Country (Cover).mp3

And here is a crazy GarageBand vomit version I for some reason thought was better based on the original file naming:

Listen: Girl From North Country (Remix).mp3

I used these chords from ultimate-guitar.com, but did not capo up:

Em – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – C – – – – – – G
Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair […]
Em – – – – – – D – – – – – – G
She once was a true love of mine.

I stole this song from Gina, who sings it better than I do.
