Scott Huddleston Music and Avocado Trees

Scott has a great YouTube channel that features awesome songs. He asked for song suggestions, so I asked for Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

He made a great version, and even gave Circuits and Strings a shoutout.

Scott also started a channel where he is documenting his quest to grow an avocado tree. His accent, the subject matter, and the theme song all make it a winner. Go and subscribe.

Four Uke Bloggers on Creating Original Arrangements

This month we were challenged to make a ukulele arrangement for a song that we love.  I decided to do “Spangle” by The Wedding Present.  I first heard a cover of this song in 2002 and I’ve liked it ever since.

Click on the link to see the chords I used, plus hear 3 more great songs.
