Lots of stuff coming through the Internet Tubes of late from Portland, Oregon uker, Jim D'Ville.
First off, Jim has just released Play Ukulele By Ear, the DVD. It's a 52-minute condensation of Jim's workshop of the same title. Topics covered include Tuning By Ear, The C Scale, Chord Progressions, Intervals, and more. Sez Jim, "this DVD doesn't just teach you a few songs, it teaches you how every song works and how to train your ears to hear what the music is doing."
Cost is $20 plus shipping payable by check or PayPal. Contact Jim by email for ordering information.
He was recently featured in a nice little piece on Oregon Art Beat, which you can watch here.
Lastly, Jim and his bandmates in Caravan Gogh have written a paean to me. Well, bloggers, anyway. Thanks guys...I guess...
