Here's my rendition of that old classic gospel song by Charles W. Fry. Fry wrote the lyrics in Lincoln, England while working with the Salvation Army there. It first appeared in the Salvation Army's "War Cry" of December 29, 1881. The tune was adapted by Fry from a melody by William S. Hays. I have found a friend in Jesus, He's everything to me, He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul; The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole. In sorrow He's my comfort, in trouble He's my stay; He tells me every care on Him to roll. Refrain He's the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, He's the fairest of ten thousand to my soul. He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne; In temptation He's my strong and mighty tower; I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn From my heart and now He keeps me by His power. Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore, Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal. Refrain He will never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here, While I live by faith and do His blessèd will; A wall of fire about me, I've nothing now to fear, From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill. Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessèd face, Where the rivers of delight shall ever roll. Refrain
How to keep your new Kala Ukulele in tune.
Some wine, a baritone 'ukulele, a little classical pop tune, a sweet lady...what more can an old buck ask for?
This is a standard 12 bar blues tune called "Stormy Monday." Originally written by Earl Hines and Billy Eckstine, and later rewritten by T-Bone Walker. It is a cloudy afternoon as you can tell by the lighting, so I decided to play the blues. Este es un estándar de 12 bar blues tune - "Stormy Monday." originalmente escrito por Earl Hines y Billy Eckstine, y más tarde reescrita por T-Bone Walker. Se trata de un nublado por la tarde como puede mira por la iluminación, así que decidí tocar el blues Recorded in Hawaii, June 2010.
Download mp3: www.mediafire.com This is an experiment. I put bronce strings on my Pono mahogany baritone uke (which has a scale length of 550 mm), using the following string diameters: .023w(D) .017(G) .014(B) .010(E). The uke sounds slightly out of tune (however it is not), I guess it's because of the compensated saddle which is made to compensate nylon strings and thus "overcompensates" now. I like the sound, but a real tenor guitar probably sounds better. :-) The sound is acoustic, I just use the Microcube in the background to play back the rhythm. Please cut me some slack since I usually never use a pick.
Happy little made up tune in the style of 1930s / 1940s. I have also uploaded this tune in a Baritone Uke version for sound comparison of the two sizes. Just for fun!!!
Old Harmony Baritone Uke - Cracks and all - still going strong - Made up little tune in the style of 1930s/40s. I have also uploaded a soprano ukulele version of this tune for sound comparisons of the two sizes. Just for fun!!!
A Benny Golson.composition, he recorded it first with Art Farmer in 1960. 9 years later the tune got pretty populare by theversion of Quincy Jones. Since I needed some space on the fretboard I played it on my Clearwater baritone ukulele.
For the Ukulele Underground Mya-Moe "From Our House to Yours" video contest. An Arthur Godfrey tune was selected so I could play my baritone uke, a two-of-a-kind hand made instrument. As lovely at it is, someday, I hope to have a ukulele that looks like a ukulele.
yet another favorite song, -I've the soundtrack The Harder They Fall, so many gems on dat LP!! The Slickers , the cut..many folks it would seem love this tune, as I do.. .....I found time to have a folly in the midst of a mowing weekend!! LOL.............heard once again--the lil Harmony Baritone Uke, mic'd sent thru the Roland mini Cube.....single mic handling both uke and voice. THANKYOU ever'body--for joining me here,...I do appreciate!;-) XOs, Laurie

This song is dedicated to the Baron (BaronK69) and his beloved Kiwaya that I sold him way too cheap... "Give her all of your spare time, love and treat her right..." I am playing my 60's Silvertone Baritone amplified through a Vox DA5 and accompanied by an SX stomp box. If you don't know the song, it's my take on a classic RJ tune.
I picked up a Hilo Baratone UKE at daddys junky music.. awesome to play, easy cords. and made up this tune.
An old favorite Dylan tune, played on the Cigar Box- Resonator- Baritone Uke that we just finished building for our friend Deena.. We love to built and play odd stringed instruments www.muttmotorpool.com
(c) 2010, DeGirolamo This is an original ukulele instrumental that I wrote. The video was recorded the day that I came up with the initial melody for the song. Tsani and I were at summer camp with the Boy Scouts and decided to head up to a scenic waterfall and shoot some ukulele videos. We got a lot of great footage, but the waterfall was so loud that you could not hear the ukes. I held on to the the footage with the idea that I would dub in the music later, but now I can't remember what songs I played, so the whole thing seemed kind of pointless.:-) After working on "Summer Camp" for a number of months and getting a decent recording of it, the video footage I had seemed like a suitable back drop for you to watch while listening to the tune that was born on the same day. Orignally, I had lyrics in mind, but, while the music came together nicely, the lyrics did not. So, they were cut but the instrumental remains. Enjoy. The ukulele in the video is a concert sized Kala made of laminated Koa. The ukuleles you hear are a Kamaka baritone ukulele with Aquila strings on rhythm and a Kamaka Tenor with D'addario Hawaiian Style strings on lead. Both are gold label vintage made sometime between 1954 and 1969. Show Tsani some love and check out his YT channel at: www.youtube.com
i love the Weavers' version of this tune....well and Pete Seeger's......oh and most of all BURL IVES' version......mmmm hmmm that's right.... hugs, todd
Yes, this is an 'ukulele, and no, the sound is not changed electronically. This is my Brueko baritone 'ukulele. I use Thomastik rope core strings to tune it one octave below the standard 'ukulele. I call it the "very low g tuning". Obviously the instrument is not the ideal choice for this fantasia, but Brayssing wrote six fantasias, so I decided to use a different 'ukulele for each.
Note: The image is reversed. This is a Terry Mead Banjo Ukulele that I just got today. It has a 22" scale length just like my Wildwood banjo. 5 strings - nylon but he built the neck strong enough for steel strings. I got my first set of finger picks this summer and have been having a blast with my Wildwood. I have about 3 years of playing baritone Ukulele and tenor banjo with a flat pick. So it is just a mater of fingers learning something new plus slightly different cord shapes. The tune I was picking was a melodic style mix of Cripple Creek and Banjo in the Hollow.
i'm a huge fan of folk songs in the 1.5 to 2.5 minute song range....so here you go ha ha! seriously though, i just like this simple tune. get yer folk on! hugs, todd (brother sonny)
Vivian the Ragtime Ingenue and Prof Plum play again! The old McHugh and Fields tune on baritone ukulele and archtop guitar.
i've been fiddling around with a re-entrant tuning on my kala baritone uke.... i do like it for some stuff, but i think the low string set up the best.... here is another tune i picked up from the 5 CD set of Pete Seeger that i scored last week..... hugs, todd

i'm not sure what i was thinking.... i just used to really dig the animated movie version of this story (Rudyard Kipling/Author)....from the 1970's.... that and i've been listening to a couple of daniel johnston songs i have on my ipod over and over ha ha! cheers
"You Tell Me Your Dream, I'll Tell You Mine" by Seymour Rice, Albert H. Brown, and Charles N. Daniels; arr. by May Singhi Breen. (Playing this tune on the baritone uke given to me by Tom Clark. I do, however, string it in a standard uke tuning - yummy!)
I like to do most songs with my own style. This song uses some Swing, Reggae, Jawaiian, poi dog (eclectic mix), and a slight touch of ragtime. The chords are pretty much the same as the original tune, I might have inverted some chords because they just sound better to me. Recorded in Hawaii, 7/15/2009.
another tune from "Burl Ives sings his favorites." Ol' Bangum sounds like he was a pretty rough dude.... enjoy the story :) ps oh....this is on my new Kala Spruce-Top Baritone Uke
Lately, I catch myself wanting to do all my tunes with multi-tracks, harmonies, etc. it's fun, but not feasible, so here's a simple ol' folk tune for y'all..... Leadbelly obviously does a great version, I love Pete Seeger's version with banjo, piano, and upright bass, but my all time favorite version is the Limeliters' version......very high energy, lots of reverb, and wild harmonies.... have a great Friday :)
I've had a couple of folk song requests from Zwoko and SirCoughsalot.....very cool that these young gentleman (I can say that now that i'm in my mid/late-ish 30's :) like this sort of stuff.... tis a tradition worth keeping alive. Anyway, here you go brothers.....Sir, I did a Carter family tune, but didn't like the way it turned out....but may have something else up my sleeve down the road. folkfully yours, todd
Flogging Molly - The Son Never Shines (On Closed Doors) cover (drunken lullabies album) on a low g soprano ukulele and a six string baritone ukulele both tuned very highly to match the slightly out of tune uillean bagpipes. this isn't our very best but I hope you'll enjoy it! -apologies to those with perfect pitch
This is my first attempt to play any song with my new ukulele. Got it delivered last night. Butchered another Beatles' tune while I was at it.
OOOOOOOOk sooooo this is another installment of adventure ukulele...Went out with the jeep, i figured this song needed a jeeping video... THANKS TO MY PAL monica for driving with me on the roof... Also i know the first flute slides pretty out of tune...but no tuning slide = cranky instrument...and the pan flute is kinda out of tune, but thats because it was 22 degrees outside and i left my tuner in the car, so i didn't feel like tuning all 15 tubes...TADA!

Recorded in 1988 at Washboard Bill's home in West Palm Beach Florida. Bill singing his favorite song and one he wrote - 'Sunshine Florida' (he loved living in South Florida) - on his baritone ukulele. Ironically this was filmed during a sudden burst of rain, you can hear it in the background (the static sound). Another rare video of the man with the Florida tan (as he would often joke). One of a few Blues artists given the Florida heritage award, he once recorded an album for the Smithsonian (!) with Pete Seeger and Brownie McGhee and cut several singles for King Records. In his youth he was a bona fide Hobo, riding the rails along the Eastern Seaboard. He was a storyteller and joke master supreme. His business card read simply, "WASHBOARD BILL - RHYTHM, BLUES, COMEDY". Be sure to visit Washboard Bill's home page at: www.myspace.com video/music copyright 2007 Kalynn Campbell/Roulette Studios
