I'd never tried one before, but always thought it a lovely instrument. I was hoping it would be fun to play around with, learn something new, etc. For me it was all that and more! I'm still learning and you can maybe hear it in the mix. Simple chords and a rank beginner strumming them, but that's why I make records - to chronicle the journey!

"Morning" - words and music by Rob Birdwell (Demo Mix #1)

A couple months before writing (and recording) this demo I ordered a ukulele. I'd never tried one before, but always thought it a lovely instrument. I was hoping it would be fun to play around with, learn something new, etc. For me it was all that and more! I'm still learning and you can maybe hear it in the mix. Simple chords and a rank beginner strumming them, but that's why we make records - to chronicle the journey!

I wrote this during the August days of 2020 - it's the second song (so far) I've written on ukulele and hopefully there are many more to follow! I like the instrument a lot. I enjoy singing with it - seems to inspire my vocals and leads me to places I might not go if just playing piano/keys.

Like the pandemic pets everyone is adopting these days, the ukulele brightened up my days and nights and gave me some new sounds to inspire new songs! This recording is a "demo" but it's a pretty good one I think. Recorded over a weekend and coupled with this video made from stock footage of beautiful primates!
