All the videos for my book-in-progress are up on YouTube

I’ve now tabbed the 17 old songs to be included in my e-book that I’m hoping to publish sometime soon [see update here]. Its title is The Social Life of the Ukulele. I intend including some of the stories on this blog (my favourites) and of course tabs for some of the tunes posted here as well.
