MUSIC POST Played On Yamaha PSR-S950

REJOICE! The Lord Is King! George Frederic Handel is my favorite composer (and Arrival of the Queen of Sheba my favorite of his works) of the Baroque era of music, and though he wrote this piece, the lyrics come from none other than Charles Wesley. Today is a great – no, perfect – day for …

About The Music…

I never knew how much I’d love playing the ukulele once I got old. My Gram gave me a baritone uke when I was a teenager and I played around with that through college, but piano was always my #1 instrument. I had studied it throughout my childhood, teen years, and college (my degree is …

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence VIDEO UPLOAD

I am playing this on my Sound Smith resonator tenor ukulele, with my Yamaha PSR-S950 keyboard. This is my favorite of the many variations on the original. Please remember I am sharing my love of music with my friends here, not performing for an audience. As I’m in the early stages of learning to play …

Thursday Thoughts (on Friday) – Dec. 3, 2020 Edition

It is wonderful to find something that fills a need AND has a ministry I can support! And that’s what happened yesterday when I was searching for a certain song to play on my ukulele for the upcoming Holiday Jam Day on a ukulele group on Mewe. In my search the Reawaken Hymns website came …

Mighty Uke Movie

What a delight!!! Those who know me know that I LOVE my ukuleles. A lifelong pianist & keyboardist (BA in music) I now play my ukes more than my keyboards. ANYWAY today I singed up for a 14 day trial of MagellanTV because I’m a documentary junkie, and there was a movie called Mighty Uke …

STELLAR!

One of the good brothers in There’s Life posts songs for Earworm Wednesday in his blog. I always give a listen, he has posted some interesting music there. But today’s song just blew me away. BLEW ME AWAY! As a huge fan of a cappella music, and tight harmonies, and male quartets, this made my …

Bye Bye Blues

Although, I don’t know how anybody could be “blue” on a day like today! It is sunny, high in the low 60’s, light breeze…fire going in the fire pit (an ADF – or all day fire – in fact!), handsome husband next to me, Maisie at my feet…and I brought my Enya Nova U out …

Time Alone = Recording!

So I had the house (motorhome) to myself today – if you want to call sharing it with 2 dogs and 2 parrots “to myself” – and decided to do some recording. One thing I’ve wanted to do is share recordings of each of my 3 ukuleles to show their different sounds and examples of …

Lord Have Mercy (on Yamaha PSR-S950)

This is played on my Yamaha PSR-S950. It is not a performance, just playing this song the way my heart feels it for my online friends. Since I don’t have a recording studio and live in < 300 sq ft I can’t get away from the sounds in our home. You will hear Maisie chewing …
