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.
If you want a regular dose of tablature to tease your fingers with (and practice counting out notes in measures, like me) then I recommend being on Alistair Wood's e-mail list. He regularly posts rock guitar riff's as part of his daily posting repetoire. Since I mix in a dash of work betwixt my ukulele playing I think of it as work for the brain - a bit of Ukulele Sodoku!
Remember, I am just a humble uker and I can't blast thru these songs as quickly as Al does, But some of the melodies are quite interesting even if slowed down. Al is a first class, top shelf blogger/musician and puts an mp3 of each song with the post. As I write this, I think of course y'all know Ukulele Hunt by now -- but perhaps there's one person still out there.
As a kid I was a philatelist, oh no! - and still love those miniature masterpieces! HU
