|Remember this guy?|
This Christmas I thought that I might have left it too late; I've been so busy that I didn't think that I'd magic up the time. Even so, I sent a message to +Daniel Hulbert to see if he was up for a collaboration and I'm pleased to say that he was! I think that this was exactly what I needed to help me to get this in bag. Thank you Daniel you crazy talented ukulele-making machine! I really hope that we can create some more music together.
This year's song is called "Snow" and is an atmospheric almost sad number written for ukulele. Daniel and I have augmented it with all sorts of other instruments and I'm really pleased with the end result. What's it about? It can be about anything you want ;-) The arrangement is very simple and one I think I would love to hear played by a full orchestra with sweeping strings. So if you are part of an orchestra with a penchant for quirky Christmas tunes... you know what to do!
Here's the video...
As is customary, I've also quickly stuck down the lyrics and a hint at the chords...
Update 19-Jul-2103: I've stuck Snow up on SoundCloud for you...
In case you're curious, here are the Christmas songs from previous years:
2011 - Secret Santa
Secret Santa is a rocky little guitar number that'll knock your Christmas socks off.
And here is a re-recording of the song that started it all off... the haunting "Message of Christmas". Forgive the duff note in the chorus... I'm no singer :-D
2012 - The Message of Christmas
Merry Christmas to everyone out there in internet-land from the Ukulele Blog!
