ukulele songs demos

don’t ask where we got them, just have a listen.

A few years ago, Vedder was on a surfing trip in Hawaii with a friend. His friend went to buy fish, and Vedder, two cases of beer. He was sitting on them outside some stores when he noticed a Kamaka tenor ukulele, displayed in a drugstore window.

“I went in and picked it up and it sounded great,” Vedder said. “And I must have had the cash on hand because I walked out with it.”

He sat back down on the beer, took the ukulele out of the box and started fooling around.

“Immediately, a melody came out,” he said. “It must have sounded like something.”

Must have; passers-by tossed money into the open case. First a dollar, then 50 cents.

      A grand in cash is like pennies to Vedder who is worth multi-millions! He probably made a grand off of interest while checking out the Uke in the store!

        They got the song from this years 420 treat (something I have done for the last couple years). This was one of the songs from the “Uke Tape” that Ed gave to several of his friends about 10 years ago. One of these people gave me a copy a couple years ago.

        Uke Tape:
        Can’t Keep
        More Than You Know
        Broken Heart
        Waving Palms
        Dream a Little Dream
