The vintage ukulele has been out of its case tonight and I've been chordifying. Lord knows, when the pressure's on at work its nice to have a few other avenues to pursue.
I am trying to meteorite the new chords and its going to take a few attempts. I can play all sorts of things by ear, but its time to learn the chord shapes.
Every instrument, even different guitars, subtly suggests different ways of writing songs and the ukulele is no exception. For a funny little instrument you can play some remarkably beautiful chords and the gruesome weather encouraged me to dwell on the more grey and mournful ones.
