about

On 11 June 2013, when I picked up my daughter Georgia from school she announced she was going to quit playing Ukulele. I advised her that we need to practice to get good at anything, but she was still not convinced.

So when we got home we wrote a song together using the easy ukulele chords C, Am, F and Em7. Thoughts of quitting disappeared when she realised she could just about play a song and how much fun it was to play music with others.

I told her that if she kept practicing and got good enough we could maybe record the song together.

This is the song we wrote and recorded together.

lyrics

Wrote me a song for my Georgia,
A little old song for my Georgia,
Won't take that long for me to sing it,
A little old song for my Georgia
