Hello you Beautiful Ukulele Music Makers!
Today I am focusing my “inspiration” on two fantastic entertainers/instructors; Gerald Ross and Stu Fuchs. If you ever get a chance to see them in person, don’t miss it!
At the end of the list is the famed “4 Chord Song” video and a yoga video to help with sciatica pain.
- Gerald Ross: All of Me
This man has the most amazing rhythm throughout his songs. He has two albums that I just adore, “Absolute Uke” and “Swing Uke”. I recommend purchasing them. You can catch him at this year’s Reno Ukulele Festival at the Peppermill May 1st.
- Gerald Ross: Wave
I recommend subscribing to his channel.
- Gerald Ross: Nuages
This is one I just learned about last Sunday a the Gypsy Jazz Jam I’ve been attending in Nevada City, Ca. Just beautiful.
- Gerald Ross: Under Paris Skies
This one is definitely my favorite.
- Stu Fuchs: Rebel Rebel ukulele tutorial
This guy is another favorite. I love his teaching style and in person he has a very real, genuinely compassionate personality. Don’t forget to subscribe, he’s got a lot of videos.
- Stu Fuchs: Jazz Ukulele chord progression
- Stu Fuchs: Ask Stu #16: Gypsy Jazz Strum
- 4 Chord Song: Axis of Awesome
I tell my intro students every month about this one, so I may as well include it so it’s easy to find. This Australian band does a mashup of 48 different songs in 6 minutes using the same four chords.
- Yoga with Adrienne: Sciatica relief
I love this girl! She’s got a whole channel on different yoga techniques. She’s charming and informative.
