Shazamio || Somebody I Used to Know

Here's something that I cam across today. I have had issues with reading musical timing and staying on with complex beats. I want to save this Shazamio musical composition video here for some study.

I chose the baritone sax version to link to just out of ignorance of what instrument would be best. The note range looks like it might work for a baritone ukulele as well. Shazamio also have pdf print outs of the compositions...

Garret Baker || Particular to Me

I am a big fan of Garret's music. He's a modern story teller expressing life with a solemn sound...

Tripp Hudgins || First Thoughts: The King of Love

Unusual and I like that. Reminds me a bit of Tom Waits style...

Jennifer Delilah || River Stay Away from My Door

Jennifer Delilah || Tonight You Belong to Me

Bruce Emery || Baritone Ukulele from Scratch

I highly recommend Bruce Emery's book and I just received an e-mail from him that after many work diversions he has uploaded his audio files to his website. And guess what -- he has a brand new book designed for the standard GCEA ukulele. 

I think this is the best book on the market for a baritone 
ukulele player with beginning to intermediate skills. 
Bruce fills the book with theory, technique and wit.

 Here's the link to his music book website, Skeptical Guitarist.

Here's the link to his Baritone Ukulele from Scratch book.
Note that his sound files are downloadable.

Another book, I recommend is Lil' Rev's Hal Leonard
Baritone Ukulele Method Book 1. These are the two best 
baritone ukulele method books on the market today.

Mats Oljare || New Ukulele Tunings

Here's an in depth review of an alternate 5th's tuning. Perhaps this may be controversial to GDAE instrument players. Mats displays also sorts of examples on both a Baritone and Standard ukulele. It is clear he has a broad and experimental approach to music... (17 minutes)
