Another great ukulele resource is out of England called, http://www.ukulelecosmos.com/ I often go here for research and dry English humor. There are many topics to dive into in their forums. They have a gizmo where they chose a song of the month and people submit their versions, and sometimes they are crazy or good. I saw one month they chose Slow Boat to China.
My friend, Sue Graziano, wants me to sing Slow Boat to China in Swedish at the next ukulele club of Santa Cruz open mic. I’ll put the Swedish language video at the bottom. Be sure to listen to the duet with Craig Robertson & Karen Langlie of Ukulele Noir in Boston.
SURF CITY SHIRLEY
This video is about 9 minutes long. Shirley plays the song. Then she plays it again showing the chords for a play along. The vamp is discussed G7-C7-F, G7-C7-F. Shirley then discusses a triple strum and a latin/brush/roll stroke.
