Saturday means it's time for a ukulele break. Today I found a helpful tutorial by a lovely young woman with the screen name pnaigrlrizz. According to her Youtube channel pnaigrlrizz is a 20-year-old woman named Rissa. You can see her other tutorials listed there. I wish the writers and producers of "Glee" would write a part for her!
And here's a lovely bit from my childhood, played on a ukulele. On his blog Uke of Carl uses the tagline, "TV Themes + Ukulele = Happiness." He couldn't be more right. Check out his rendition of Quantum Leap for Solo Uke.
(I also enjoyed this series and while I thought Scott Bakula was great in it and continues to be fun to watch ["Men of a Certain Age"] I have long been a Dean Stockwell fan. My favorite episode happens to provide details of Admiral Al's character—"The Leap Home [Parts 1 and 2]" from season 3—I can't say more or I'll spoil it.)
Let's go out with Uke of Carl playing the theme of one of my favorite TV comedies "Parks and Recreation." (He's right the tune is excellent and delivers everything needed in one brief shot—and it also perfectly fits the mood of the show.)
Now it's back to work. (Don't spend too much time with Carlton [that seems to be his name] but just in case you don't go back far enough with his blog check out this piece of John Phillip Sousa's that you're sure to recognize.)
Oh, what the hell, don't leave Uke of Carl until you hear him play "Bonanza." (I never liked the show, and I LOVE westerns, but it is a catchy tune and he plays it well.)
I seem to remember someone around here has a deadline to meet…
UPDATE: A short time later…
OK I couldn't stop. Check out Uke of Carl's Black Adder.
