I'm just a kid again, doin' what I did again


It's been rather a while since I last posted a ukulele video but, as I uploaded one last night, I thought it was about time to post another. I'm really not sure how interesting these are for everyone but I shall continue to post them, anyway!


This one is a short recording of a sweet little ditty written in 1926 that most of you will know: When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob Bobbin' Along). The song was written by Harry M. Woods and, since 1926, has been recorded by many artists including fellow uke player Cliff Edwards, as well as Al Jolson, Doris Day, Dean Martin, et al. It's a very fun and simple song for me to play, so I hope you all enjoy listening to it.

 



Since the last time I did one of these posts, I've actually uploaded a few videos to my YouTube channel (which you are all more than welcome to subscribe to) but I don't want to inundate you all with videos of me singing and playing, so I shall just add one more to this post. 

A while back on Tumblr, I asked my followers for requests/suggestions of songs I should do. I got 5 (or maybe 6) responses...and only recorded one so far. Eep! Anyway, this song has also been covered by a few artists but was originally by The Zutons and was then covered famously by Amy Winehouse on Mark Ronson's album Version. I have so much fun playing this song, too, so I hope you like this one, as well!





If there are any other musicians (uke players or otherwise) out there who have some music up online I'd love to have a listen! I'm still at the stage where I'm only covering other people's songs for YouTube but I hope to start dabbling in song-writing a bit more this year. 

Love,
Andi B. Goode
