Uke Song (Contemplating the Inevitable Return of the Tonawanda Kardex In Glory)

October 28, 2010 10:05 AM

A little song on ukulele and a few other instruments. This was recorded last night in one take per track, improvised around a basic chord structure.

I've been trying to teach myself to play the uke for a little while so that I can teach my son to play. So far, though, I'm sort of stuck playing it like it's a tiny guitar. Lots of little noises because I'm not used to sitting still with a uke in front of a microphone. The slide mandolin was the trickiest part, for some reason.

The uke here blends really nicely with the other instruments. Forgive me for asking, I've never played a uke before, but how is it not exactly like a tiny guitar?

Also you've managed to capture the percussive boom of the upright bass quite nicely. It lends a certain thump to the overall mix that helps keep the track from feeling too "improvisational", if that makes sense.

So nice! I'd like to listen to a full album of this while drawing drawings.
