Emily Naul || The Lyrical Linguist Challenge

I received an e-mail from an old baritone ukulele playing friend, actually a young lady that I've posted in her Sea Shanty days on the HippoMaiden YouTube channel...

Hi Jeff!
I've really enjoyed browsing your blog -- you've found some great stuff from all over :) I wanted to see if you or anyone you know might be interested in my YouTube challenge called The Lyrical Linguist Challenge. The idea is to learn to sing a song in a non-native language, and to record yourself singing and/or playing.
Hope all's well!

Emily has posted several videos to get you started. Here's the playlist...


  1. Al from Ukulele Hunt posted two Swedish Tunes for me in 2007. I am going put the link here. http://ukulelehunt.com/2007/09/09/swedish-folk-songs/comment-page-1/

  2. What an interesting tidbit about Google searches for "ukulele"! This is such a great resource--I'll post it on my site. Hope to hear your rendition! *hint hint* :)
