“The Longest Time” for Ukulele

Here’s some free sheet music for players of the Soprano, Concert, or Tenor ukulele. I’ve always liked this song but its original key is terrible for female voices. I’ve bumped it up to the key of G with full chords and lyrics and put it into PDF format. If any fellow music lovers spot any […]

Museum Rock

Most of the music in my mp3 collection was not written recently. A quick glance at the top of my play count in iTunes shows names like Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest. So of course two years ago I was stoked to go see Roger Waters perform The Wall in […]

Back in the saddle

I got to spend a couple of hours this morning recording some voiceover work and a song for Champions Online, reprising the role of Sapphire for the mmo’s in-game second anniversary party. It was fun to get to do some creative work again. It’s been too long since I had the time to quest with […]

Creedence and the Fuckin’ Eagles, Man

I should begin this by admitting that I like the Eagles. Lots of their tunes rock, and the Eagles will forever have geek street cred as the authors of “Journey of […]

I’m Auntie TV

Awesome. So I got to play my ukulele for my niece tonight over Skype. That can be a little abstract for an eighteen-month-old, but once she caught on that I could see and hear her, she thought it was pretty cool. She danced for me while we sang “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little […]
