Opal Fly || This Time (Original Song)



Here's another Opal Fly original...

Opal Fly is a masterful saxophone player that also plays a baritone ukulele. Andy Andrews, co-founder of the Ukulele CLub of Santa Cruz is the only other person that I know that combines ukulele and saxophone.

SATURDAY SONG DAY || Dig a Little Deeper in the Well

I was listening to a compilation CD of Doc Martin and heard this song. It had an old time charm to it and I decided that I want to add it to my Playlist Binder. This song is best known for it's version by The Oakridge Boys which uses a lot of harmonies -- but I choose to use the bluesman Eric Bibb's version since I normally sing alone.



"Dig" can be sung once if your not doing the harmonies.

Dig A Little Deeper In The Well
Recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys
Written by R. Bowling and Martha Jo Emerson

G
Dig a little deeper in the well boys
C                                        G
Dig a little deeper in the well

If you want a good cool drink of water
                  D7                                     G
You gotta dig a little deeper in the well

repeat #1

                                                            C                                G
My daddy used to tell me don't be fooled by what you see
                                                                                                                  D7
If you want to get to the heart of things you gotta look way down deep
             G                                     C                                   G
Second place don't get it son a winner gotta come in first
                                                                            D7                                 G
There's nothing worse than to take a drink that leaves you in the dirt

repeat #1

                                                                            C                                   G
A good man needs a good woman she's the rock that’ll make you strong
                                                                                               D7
She'll be there to lean on when the whole worlds going wrong
           G                                                 C                                       G
There ain't nothing like good loving that's how it's meant to be
                                                              D7                                           G
So find yourself a good woman son like your momma's been to me

repeat #1

                                                       C                                         G
There's a mighty river flowing where the water cool and sweet
                                                                                                     D7
Don't be fooled by a muddy stream be careful where you drink
            G                             C                              G
Life is what you make it sometimes a living hell
                                                                    D7                                     G
If you want to find that promised land dig a little deeper in the well

repeat #1 x2

Richard Hefner || Away in the Manger

Richard runs the site called ezFolk, he plays the baritone ukulele, writes tablature and is a follower of this humble site too. I had posted this tune a little while back. Christmas tunes sneak into my consciousness throughout the year. I have some links to ezFolk in the sidebars and he said he would be posting more baritone tablature soon...



It's never to early to start learning a Christmas song.

Ukulele Hunt || Get Lucky (Daft Punk)

Alistair Wood is a treasure. He does the best ukulele blog in the world and has a great ear for sharing tablature and musical information. Be sure to review the archives of Ukulele Hunt and you'll be sure to find a wide range of topics to enrich your ukulele playing.

I wanted to share this one because of the rhythm skills of combining strumming and muting.

This is a original tune played on an old Vega tenor banjo. I strung it with Baritone ukulele strings re-entrant dgbe. For this piece, I tuned the first string down for a tuning of dgbd.

Chris H || Ain't No Grave (Tenor Banjo EAC#F#)

Chris writes...
"Written by Claude Ely and recently popularized by a posthumous Johnny Cash release. I'm playing my great-grandfather's 100 year old tenor banjo restrung as a baritone ukulele and tuned EAC#F#. Arrangement inspired by pabrizzer's and Massive Attack."
Pabrizzer wrote in response...
"Loved it mate. Couldn't ya hear me singin along. I know that people do occasionaly post non uke stuff in the Links and Video section."
This tuning is two steps up from the DoGBonE tuning, D#,G#CF, then EAC#F#

The 4 string banjo is on by instrument "bucket list." Chris you performed it marvelously. That banjo adds a bit of "haunt" to this old song. Thanks for sharing it.

ChristyLynn42 || The Beat Stuff

Jillie Mae Eddy || The Girl from Bare Cove

I have meant to post more of Jillie's project but my time has been quite limited lately. I don't want you to miss out in a major work, so here is...

"An original folk opera written for five actor-musicians, THE GIRL FROM BARE COVE follows a family in crisis as they face the near-loss of one of their own. With songs inspired by the folk sounds of New England and a story rooted in the ghostly traditions and fairy tales of that place, this modern-day fable invites us to explore the communities we share and the worlds we build for ourselves..."(read more)

Below is a sampling of Jillie Mae Eddy with her baritone ukulele. You can hear all of the demos by clicking the "read more" above.

Demo 01 -- Bare Cove



Demo 16 -- Not So Long Ago



Demo 19 -- You Can't Let it Burn You

Learn the Ukulele dot Com || Head Full of Doubt (Avett Brothers)

Obviously he's playing a GCEA tuned bari, but the chord shapes can be standard Bari Chords.

C = 2010,  G = 0003,  Am = 2210,  F = 3211

I like the spaces in between strum.

Flatpicking Guitar Lesson || Using Harmonized Scales (October 2006)

I have a small collection of about 15 Flatpicking Guitar Magazines although I have never played guitar beyond some simple trials. I find that these magazines are full of technical information and I would recommend that you purchase one if you come across them at your music store. The magazine is a very professional magazine with about 20 writers sharing a wide variety of information.

Tim May gives this lesson on "Using Harmonized Scales" which is in the key of G and entirely on the DGBE strings. The lesson works with scales and using the techniques of "double stops" or "pinches" as well as the flatpicking technique of "crosspicking"

Butterfly Bandito || A Year

ChristyLynn42 || First Day of My Life

I hadn't seen a post from Christy in a while and I'm glad to hear her again...

Carolyn Nobles || Cloudy View

Carolyn plays and sings beautifully. I normally let GCEA tunings pass by but since she's playing in low G and is playing the first RISA Baritone Ukulele that I have ever seen I must post...



I just had to hear that harp too!
