There is more cuteness on my flickr, here.
On Monday I had the day off and it was mad hot here, so I decided that the shade of the trees by the lake would be much better than my sweltering apartment. I had to do laundry anyhow, so I walked halfway around the lake to a different place than usual, and sat there in the shade on a bench by the water for at least 2 or 3 hours and played through every song I knew by heart. Then I stopped for lunch and went over to my usual spot just to sit, but a man came up to me and said he saw me playing earlier and was wondering if I had a tuner. Turns out his friends were just across the park playing guitar. So I wandered over and they invited me to sit and jam with them. I felt really awkward because they were in a band, and they played beautiful improvised reggae versions of classic songs. But they were super duper nice and just gave me chord cues so I could follow along and I ended up jamming with them for quite a while. They are there pretty often so maybe I will get some pointers as time goes on.
So anywho, the reason I am on this subject is because I am a self-taught ukulele player and I just use tabs and chords I find online to learn new songs. But I find that some of them are either wrong, poorly edited/written, or even just nonexistent for some of the more obscure songs I would like to learn. So I am going to start posting the tabs I use to play with on here, for the people out there who are struggling to find good tabs for these songs. Just a heads up, more to come soon!
Ooh, and in other news, a woman who has a great little blog called Muffins and More featured my crocheted mug cozy pattern in her tea lovers roundup. She has some super cute tea-related crafts on there, so go check it out!
