Back! (again)

Posted by Ian on March 1, 2010

Yes, it has been nearly two years since I last updated this blog, but what amazes me is that I am STILL getting 100+ views per week as well as comments on my posts!

Since there is such continued interest in my blog, I figure I might as well work to expand upon it a bit, so I will start trying to put up new posts every once in a while.

If all goes as I hope, there will be new ukulele-specific theory, tabs, chords, reviews, and tips. I’ve picked up a lot in the last couple of years, and I’d like to share it with you all!

Until then, peace, love, and ukuleles!

So… I just checked my site’s stats today… and found out that, though I had only posted once in a week (stupid ants….), I had a steady amount of people checking my site… around 20 individuals per day.

I thank all of the 20+ of you who visit my site regularly… it means a lot to me to know that I have a steady group of people who enjoy and appreciate my work, and that motivates me to try to take my sight a bar or so higher….

However, regretfully, for the next three weeks, I will probably be posting less often than usual, as I am having to devote two hours of my time each day to a driver’s education course… fun fun fun.

So I will try to get posts out, but they will probably be fewer, far between, and of lesser quality than usual.

So, in the meantime, I suggest that, if you haven’t been visiting my blog from the beginning, you go take a look at my ‘tabs’ section. There is a ton of materiel there that you may find interesting.

Enjoy!

Phone line

Posted by Ian on March 28, 2008

I’m not on my own computer right now… and don’t have much time…

My family’s phone line is pretty much down… and the DSL is down alongside that… so I have no clue how long it will be until I can get back to blogging here regularly… hopefully rather soon….

Sorry about this, guys… and keep tuned, as I will get things rolling again ASAP.

Music, Ukulele, and French…

Posted by Ian on March 21, 2008

So, as I mentioned a while back, I wrote a song for a project in French….

I have now posted it here:

…it’s the song that is titled ‘Une Ballade Pour Marie Antoinette’.

And, in case you for some strange reason want the chords for it, here they are:

Coming up on Uke Thingy

Posted by Ian on March 10, 2008

This next week, I have plans for….

More Tabs

More Theory Lessons (chord structure 2 and phrasing in music)

Possibly some videos of me making a fool of myself, ukulele in hand, in front of my french class…

However, I must let you know: I have two orchestra competitions with my school and will be rather busy, so there may be days that I will not be able to make a post.

Stay tuned…

Bugsgear

Posted by Ian on March 6, 2008

Musicguymic is having a GREAT sale at his ebay store on some of his bugsgear solidbody ‘Eleukes’

I am a proud owner of one, and will praise its durability, reliability, functionality, and practicality beyond ends.

Here’s a link, in case you’re interested.

Gone For Weekend

Posted by Ian on February 21, 2008

Sorry about the wy things have been going slowly, lately… I’ve been really busy up at school, and haven’t had much time to put into this. However, my internet is back up, now, so that’s good.

And I”m letting you all know in advance that there won’t be an update this weekend until possibly late Sunday; I’m going camping (bringing a uke with me), and it’s a tad hard to blog in the middle of nowhere…

And, just a little thing to think about: we always say ‘a ukulele’, but wouldn’t it be grammatically correct to say ‘an ukulele’?

…just sounds horrible, doesn’t it?

Taking a Break

Posted by Ian on February 2, 2008

If you haven’t noticed in the last few days, I haven’t been posting any new materiel, and I most likely won’t for the next few days. I’ve been focusing more on cello than on uke, and haven’t taken the time to tab anything out on the uke or write anything up.

Thanks a ton for looking at my blog, and keep checking  back!

Checking In…

Posted by Ian on January 22, 2008

Haven’t had the time to tab anything out to post today, but I want to at least get a post up….

…so I’ll ask this:¬† what do y’all want to see on this site: More tabs? More regular updates?

…I’m assuming there’s a y’all that I’m talking to… that I’m not just aimlessly talking to nothingness….

Remember: you can now leave comments…. just telling you….

And now I’m off to bed. G’nite.

Server transfer!

Posted by Ian on January 21, 2008

I have decided to switch over to wordpress, as opposed to coding my own blog…. it looks better, has more features, and allows me to have more time to actually write up the info for the blog.

I’ve re-posted all of my old posts from the old blog, and will soon be adding new info to this site.

…and the best part of it…. you all can leave comments! I can finally get input and see what all you guys want.
