Fred Eaglesmith || Freight Train

I was in a garage band for a short while, called the Uklectics, and one of my bandmates, Sheila performed at the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz open mic night tonight with her cousin and Gary Cunningham. It was the first time I heard this song and decided to post it here for future reference and a give it a go with my baritone. Sheila wowed on her banjo uke.

This video starts of with a little humor... Elephants, Canadians, etc...

Lyrics and chords, link.

Bob Guz || Overkill (Why am I posting a tenor uke video?)

I am posting this video because it is a little off the beaten path and there's a link to a Low G arrangement that I think might have possibilities on the low D bari. Here's the tab link.

Baritone Ukulele Oldies || Everybody Loves Somebody

Here's a new take on the clarity of presenting songs in a YouTube video. Often we just can't see the fingerings clearly, as they hover over the fretboard, and now BUO has taken care of it! These oldies have many juicy chords...

This is his first BUO video and I hope that his video collection grows steadily! Here's a link to his YT channel. Nice cover banner, eh? You betcha.

Lew Dite || Likes Likker Better than Me (DGBD tuning)

I thought I'd search out some DGBD tuning and see what I could find. Here's an Old Time music player named Lew Dite that has posted many traditional tunes. Here Lew is playing a steel string tenor guitar. But we can easily adjust to this tuning on our bari's too...
