I’m always looking for songs to play and teach that are stupid simple, but still great pieces of music that work well on the ‘ukulele. They can be a challenge to locate and when you do finally find one it tends to get old because everyone plays it (I’m Yours). But I’ve got a new track that fits the “simple” criteria – One Day by Matisyahu. I first heard this song covered by Barry Flanagan from Hapa, but shortly after saw a beautiful video that featured the original. The gifts of kindness and true potential of people portrayed in that video stuck with me and just recently I finally took the time to get familiar with the words.
Here’s a lesson video I made geared toward the beginning ‘ukulele player, but the song would be a great addition to anybody’s performing or teaching repertoire.
