Year of Uke #11! God Rest Ye Merry
One of the great things about the uke is that we can pick up the basics quickly. Being able to do that means we can play with others quickly! I have always enjoyed the communal element of music and miss it now that we to have to play alone as we wait for...all the things we are waiting for. Thankfully I have a lot of videos like this one to take me back.
One of the great things about the holidays is the chance to remember the good times, whenever they were. This is one of those good times. Here I am with my oldest back in 2013 playing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. He is now a college grad (Music and History) and works as a farmhand. Like many people in his situation he lives at home and I see him every day. He still plays the uke, which sometimes makes me think of the good old days when we used to play together frequently.. He also plays his trumpet--his main instrument--daily as he keeps his chops up and waits for the Great Unpleasantness to end. Then I remember how loud a trumpet can be in an enclosed space.
Anyway, I am in the midst of prep for multiple church Advent events so I am just going to leave this here. Honestly I don't remember what chords we used anyway. The words are easily googled...

I play a number of musical instruments. In addition to the ukulele I play the mandolin, guitar, rhythm bones, and a few other things. This page, though, is about my uke project. I recently decided to post once a week on a uke-themed topic. Most of these posts will be simple songs you can sing along to. Maybe later I will do more informational videos as well.
