How to build an amazing paddle ukulele.

One of my students, Colin Hovland mentioned to me recently that he had built a paddle ukulele himself. I asked him to bring it in to show me and I just could not believe my eyes. Not only was it stunning to look at, but it played like a dream. Colin very kindly agreed to share how he built the ukulele in a little blog which is below. He also let me have a go on the ukulele and you can hear it in action in the video below.

Free Tabs for a classical ukulele piece

Here is a video of a classical piece I wrote for ukulele. It is called 'Memoire de la Mare' and I wrote it in Le Pouldu in France in 2017. The original version is available on my album 'Me, My Ukulele & I' which you can order through this website. If anyone would like a free copy of the tabs for this just drop me a mail at and I will send you a copy. I hope you enjoy the video.

New ukulele internet collaboration

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by 'Global Ukulele Companions' to do a collaboration over the internet. I must admit I have been asked to do these before but work schedules usually prohibit my involvement. This one though, just looked too much fun. Florian from Uke Companions asked me to do a Xylophone and Ukulele duet of the Muppets Theme. Who could resist such an offer ? So, here are the results - a collaboration done over the internet of The Muppets Theme. Relax and enjoy :
