Happy New Year!

Here's to more laughter in 2013.

This is a tune called the Laughing Rag by Roy Smeck from the 1920s. Buster Keaton would have certainly known this one and probably could have played it better than I can. Anyway, here's a version recorded during the packing and moving from my old studio. I'm using my 1930 Reed/Regal ukulele purchased from Antebellum Instruments.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I love that, Matt!! I've always wanted to play the ukulele— it looks like so much fun! Happy New Year to you :)

Lauren, sounds like you have a new resolution. The uke is easy and fun to learn (but a bit addictive). I'll give you some tips!
