Revisiting the Rubin Uke

I’ve had a fairly productive weekend so far. I fixed a laundry room door, dyed my hair, got some spackling done in the bedroom and bathroom. And, I sat down to work, once again, on my little Rubin soprano uke. I don’t use this uke often for a number of reasons, but I’ve also really […]

New Tune: It’s You

I decided to write this one on the new baritone uke as an excuse to noodle around with it and get used to it. Ultimately, this song pretty much exists because I had two weird encounters in the same week. This happens to all of us sometimes, I think – where we have a totally […]
