Steve 29928, a Naked Ukulele Guy

Here’s a new ukulele-YouTuber to watch, Steve 29928.  What he lacks in clothing he makes up for in talent.  He’s new to the instrument, improving very rapidly.  He’s already put up three performances worth listening to in their entirety.

His cover of UB-40’s cover of “Red Red Wine.”  It’s his latest one, and his best so far, I think.

The Girl from Ipanema

Can’t Help Fallin’ in Love with You“- not the best performance perhaps, but his dog peeks into the frame, and I love that.

    Did I see hot pink panties in the second video? He should call me.

    My Stubby is good at casually showing up in my own videos. He’s so proud of his fur.

    Fishy perhaps, but it might spawn more uke videos, if we’re lucky.

  7. any really good songs worth learning?

    Gee Steve, I don’t know. Your success with UB-40 makes me want to know what you’d do with Yellowman, but I’m the last one to make suggestions. Thanks for asking, though!

    Well I’m the first one to make suggestions, so how about the songs “I Kissed a Girl” (Jill Sobule) or “Brand New Key” (Melanie Safka)? I think these would sound particularly good on a ukulele.

    Since you asked . .

    Those are good!

    A few weeks ago Al Wood posted tabs of the James Bond theme on Ukulele Hunt; I thought that near the end Al found some potential to open up the rhythm and transform the song into reggae. It would be really tough to do; Al wasn’t too enthusiastic about my hints that he should give it a try, and I certainly don’t blame him, not with all he’s done for the instrument. But if you managed to pull it off it would really be an achievement.

  11. thats pretty hard!

    Yes, very very hard. That’s why I didn’t suggest it right off.
