Just something we did for fun this weekend. I can only take credit for the singing and half of the snaps.

You have a cool, sultry tone in your voice which I like a lot. But you need to watch the intonation - little bit flat here and there. Easily fixed - practice or electronic trickery, take your pick! Looking forward to hearing more from you. Just thought - you might consider teaming up with tunewell. He does a lot of uke stuff, and does it very well.

Nice. I'm sad you cut off before the ending, though; that's my favorite part!

Does he still hang out around here? His account went dark a while back, but maybe he opened a new one and I didn't notice...

Sadly Steve Goldberg is no longer on metafilter. But of course you can still find him on the internet and playing songs in various music venues.

I love this song! I suggested a cover-fest as one of the monthly challenges a while back, but to no avail. Wish there were more of this. (You should check out John Pizzarelli's cover from his "Knowing You" album - it's really nice.)

Uf, that's too bad (about Steve). If he is a friend of yours, tell him he'll be missed around here. I didn't notice his absence because I've haven't been around much, but he was really cool.

Your song is great. I was going to ask if you had written it, but I googled and found out you made me like a Beach Boys song. I like your version better, in any case. As the major said above, will be looking forward to hearing more from you.
