Gary Peare of Ukulelia says, "Let's start the new year right. And by 'right,' I mean with the world's greatest rendition of 'Tonight You Belong to Me.' Courtesy of Benjamin J. Ames and his four-year-old daughter."
Sophie Madeleine says:
"I'm very pleased to announce that you can now pre-order my Official Limited Edition Ukulele Tab Book. This is the first edition, limited to only 200 copies. Each one is numbered and signed by Sophie.
The front of the book is full tablature, chord boxes, lyrics, and melody notation. Then turn the book over and upside-down and there's a "Quick Chord Book" in the back - with lyrics and chord boxes for those who want a quick reference sheet. Take A Look!
Featuring 10 songs from Sophie's first two albums (all of the songs that feature the ukulele!)
I wrote it all by myself, and it took me a very long time indeed. I sincerely hope you like it!
One of my favorite recent projects in MAKE is Chester Winowiecki's complete instructions for making an inexpensive "panjolele." It's a cake pan banjo ukulele and it sounds great. I just wish I could play and sing as well as Chester.
Below: everything you need to make a panjolele.
