I wanted to create this blog as a place where I can store and retrieve information for future reference. I chose the name Humble Uker Ramblings because I have started out strumming my father's 1950's painted Harmony ukulele. I think that the greatest appeal of the ukulele as "the people's instrument" is it's humble simplicity. My contact email is HumbleUker@gmail.com. I have also been working on a blog for the Baritone Ukulele called Humble Baritonics.
Hein Overbeek plays ukulele accompanied by a vintage Jelly Roll Morton tune. Hein has quite a a collection of vintage tunes he plays in that beautiful old-time ukulele style on a sweet Martin ukulele. I think I see a traditonal Swedish "tomte gubbe" standing in the foreground. Click on the title above to link directly to the Hein's YouTube page for more songs of this era... .
. Here's a little ukulele and saxophone. Reminds me a bit of Andy Andrews wailing away. .
