Thanks for the Ukulele and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

The ukulele well-played has commanding simplicity and passion.  I like Smells Like Teen Spirit, and this version.  The song is imbibed with Nirvana and Kurt Cobain’s raw energy; and the ukulele brings that out beautifully, while precise plucking of strings tenderly draws out the angst of – as it’s introduced in this video – “…a teenager in love”.

Want to know more about the ukulele? Please check out some of the Zemanta-fed Related Articles, written by people who love, adore and play this very special instrument.

    Last minute choice! Salmon and chopped egg with garlic scapes and chives, piled on slices of crispy light and dark rye toast slathered with melted butter!! Yum yum. For the salmon spread mix together: 1 diced garlic scape with 1…Read more ›
  • Three Sisters Chili 
    This chilli was a big suprise! I’d never had a squash chili, though after reading recipes with squash and beans, and looking at mouth-watering pictures, I had to try it. The result is a slightly nutty, almost parmesan taste! Ingredients…Read more ›
