I am totally into Sophie Madeleine now after being introduced to her by Venus in NY with this video. :heart:



It's fun to play and I'm learning several of her songs. Love her. Love them. They are talented, funny and there's a UKE!

This was a really cool project from Sophie, and more of her stuff. http://www.youtube.com/user/misssophiemadeleine

I don't know if anyone has embedded any of the Garfunkel and Oates stuff, but it's beyond wonderful too. Secret Cheri had me rolling with these. :roll2:

I :heart: Kate Micucci.

Yay, glad you're enjoying Rocky and Balls and Sophie Madeleine's stuff! I found out about them through Uke Hunt and I've been playing I Heart You Online on the uke for a while now and I agree that it's so much fun to play. :nod:

I'm glad you like it, kipples. Maybe a couple of us could try a duet, harmonies and stuff, if biscuit still has the ability to pair up two videos? With just a few phrase changes...the song could work nicely for the forum. :D Where is biscuit anyway? :stick:

I have also been working on Hey, Soul Sister, and was amazed to see the uke in the acoustic video is just like my new (used) Fender tenor . 8)



I want to point that camera right at the uke. It's just four chords. E, B, C#m and A. He is barring the E and I get a severe cramp in my hand trying to do it. It's really the only way to change from a B to an E and back that quickly though. Did you use those chords, LauraK or are there alternates?

Je suis ici, mes amies ;)

I Love You Online was really sweet and catchy :rock:

I think I could still merge two recordings, if I can find the programme I used.. I've changed computers since working on it last year. Or maybe it's on hubby's in which case I'll be happy to help you anytime after 12th October :)

Did I use those chords, lol....you're funny nonch!

No. No way did I use those chords. I have real trouble with E and B. I found barring the 4th fret and hitting the 7th with pinky works, it doesn't sound quite the same....and it's hard!

Here are the super-easy chords I used:

That was cool, kipples. :)

Heh, heh. Yes, that was much easier with C, G, Am and F. :worry: Thanks, Laura. :D How does the dude in the video make it look so easy? :dunno: What are you playing now?

Cuz he's a pro and has innate talent- like you and others have. 8) I just enjoy myself.

I'm kind of all over right now....Jason Mraz's I'm Yours (also w/ easy chords found at UkeHunt) Teenager in Love, Tim Minchin's Not Perfect (which also describes how I play that song, but I LOVE it), The Glory of Love, Dream a Little Dream of Me....(playing this song at the proper speed, lol.)

You play quite well, Laura you big tranny ho. Whacho talkin bout? :P

I'll bet The Glory of Love is fun. It's funny cuz my UAS is flaring up and I adore Bette Midler, check out the UAS thread for my latest coveted uke.


I'm seriously ODing on Sophie Madeleine right now. I bought all of her recordings, and have learnt to play all of her songs (somewhat).

This one is close to my heart, for obvious reasons. :lol:



Chords

But this one is my favorite to play :heart: and the song reminds me of Bret's ridiculous love song to Coco. :lol: (and it's about a uke)



Chords

It has lots of tricky (for me) chord changes and fun strums. The F (with added 1st string) switch to Fm is killing me, but I love a challenge. So fun. I just wish I could sing, then I would record it. Her voice is so beautiful.


Oh! And Venus, did you know that Sophie played a gig in New York City on September 10th!!?!?!?!?! :| We just missed her.

I'm a tranny ho, too?? :*-) (That's a happy tear.) :hug:

Hm, I saw Bette Midler on Ellen with her sparkly uke....I'm very curious to see what your heart is set on next! :)

Oh wow, what a gorgeous voice she has! I love the Beard Song. :thumb:
