Tonight in Sam Plays the Ukulele
We have confirmed that I am at Monkees level of I’m A Believer, and have not yet sufficiently prepared to ascend to Smashmouth level. Monkees level is nice, it’s an okay place to be. I just gotta remember I’m not ready to roar “I got rain” at Smashmouth levels yet.
I can now play several golden oldies off-book, and I think I’ve almost got the chords down for Star Spangled Man With A Plan. I don’t mean I have mastered the chords so much as – there aren’t ukulele or even good simple guitar chords for Star Spangled Man, so I’ve literally been tuning it out by ear. It’s still not perfect, but I’ve definitely got a few lines down. (Then I will perhaps attempt When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield.)
