New Ukulele Chord Solo Book under Construction

I’ve tabbed 19-odd old songs to be included in an e-book that I’m hoping to publish before the end of 2012. Its working 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. [UPDATE: SEE THIS POST]
The tunes are:

Moonlight Bay by Percy Wenrich (1912)
My Gal Sal by Paul Dresser (1895)
By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Gus Edwards (1909)
Peg o’ My Heart by Fred Fischer (1913)
Rose of Washington Square by James F. Hanley (1920)
April Showers by Lou Silvers (1921)
When You were Sweet Sixteen by James Thornton (1898)
Avalon by A. Jolson, B De Sylva and Vincent Rose (1920)
Second Hand Rose by James F. Hanley (1921)
Poor Butterfly by Raymond Hubbell (1916)
Ball-in’ the Jack by Chris Smith (1913)
Carolina in the Morning by Walter Donaldson (1922)
You Made Me Love You by James Monaco (1913)
If You were the Only Girl in the World by Nat D. Ayer (1916)
Ain’t We Got Fun by Richard A. Whiting (1921)
Pretty Baby by Tony Jackson and Egbert Van Alstyne (1916)
Somebody Stole My Gal by Leo Wood (1918)

Please let me know if you think it is worth my while…. Ta

The Backward Ukulele Player meets Bosko and Honey!

The internationally famous ukulele couple, Bosko and Honey (and friends), took time out of their busy schedule to drop in on the backward ukulele player and family. I was incoherent with happiness — and remain so. 

B&H at Our Place

Bosko and Honey are travelling to the Melbourne Ukulele Festival. With them are amazing ukulele performers, Gensblue and Yan Yalego, Mark the driver (who has already had his first ukulele lessons on safari) and the friendly camera-person-from-Melbourne-who-plays-ukulele-while-surfing, Jo Bangles. 

You can follow them via their UKULELE SAFARI OZ 2010 page.

PS: my youngest son found that Honey was very interested in his six different lego versions of Indiana Jones.
