In my first episode I have a chat to my ukulele teacher, Michael Rosenberg.
Michael plays snippets from a few songs. If you want to hear the originals, check out the playlist on the YouTube channel.
- “I Am Sailin’ ”, by Memphis Minnie (1941)
- “Dream A Little Dream of Me” by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schwandt and Gus Kahn (1931)
- “Ukulele Lady” by Gus Kahn and Richard A. Whiting (1925)
- “Has Anybody Seen My Gal” by Ray Henderson, Sam M. Lewis & Joseph W. Young (1925)
I’ve put photos on the website (www.ukuleleisthenewblack.com) of Michael’s resonator ukulele and the amazing tri-coconut uke.
Thanks to Seb Carraro for doing my graphic design, and to everyone who has given me advice on this massive undertaking!
