Sittin' on Top of the World || Lil' Rev & Kentucky Kids

Lil' Rev's version wars posted 8 years ago and I'm sure that I've posted it once or twice before. He is a master multi-instrumentalist. I was reminded of him when watching the second video of Bluegrass Playin' Kids from Kentucky. There aren't any ukuleles in the group but it shows amazing musicality & cooperation to have so many kids share the limelight.

Lil' Rev has a new Fiddle Tunes on Ukulele book out for standard GCEA tuned ukes. I have a copy of it and I've just begun working with some of the tunes. He writes for Hal Leonard and the book has all of the songs posted on the Hal Leonard site where they have a super-player that allows on to change speeds for learning and possible even to one to change the pitch to work with the bari's lower tuning.

This 8 year old video is a bit grainy but Marc's talent shines thru...

Kids on Bluegrass perform "Sittin' On Top of the World" at the 2012 International Bluegrass Music Association Fan Fest in Nashville. They're a lot of fun to watch...
