My Jams

Uncategorized

For Christmas, my mama and pops got me a ukulele. They got it on their recent trip to Hawaii. I thought it would be a lot easier to play than it is. I’ve played guitar for almost 6 years, but I have a lot to learn. The softer strumming, new chord fingerings and tuning… It’ll be fun though, and much more portable for travelling fun.

Right now in the musical world, I’m loving a couple things:

1) One Republic

2)Breezeblocks by Alt-J

Their album NATIVE just runs through me like fresh water. It moves me, lyrics and melodies and all. I can’t stay still while I listen to it, and it is my favourite thing to have going in my earbuds at the moment. I even have started to plan a music video I want to make for Counting Stars, however, there are so many good ones on that album, I don’t know which I will choose yet to work on.

I have a remix of Breezeblocks by Alt-J on my running playlist, but the original is my favourite. They have a bit more of a unique sound and Breezeblocks weaves voice and silence and beats in an intriguing way I think. I also like their song Bloodflood, it’s very mellow.

  1. Good luck with the new uke. I’ve been teaching myself for a couple of years & it’s a fun instrument to play, so portable & very social! I’ve even ended up becoming the webmaster for my local group (check out my signature block for our site with loads of free resources, tips for beginners, songbooks etc).
    Happy strumming!
