  1. do you know anywhere I can find some 12 bar blues to play along with? all I find when I youtube it is tutorials…

  2. Whoa! Who knew there was so much possible with a ukulele. Whenever I see them normally, it’s in a very narrow light. It’s cool to see someone really doing something out of the ordinary with them. Using it to demonstrate blues music is a very creative take. It makes me appreciate the instrument much more now. I can see you are very happy using it as well.
