The Beatles Complete on Ukulele

You have to like the ambi­tion of this project. Roger Greenawalt and David Bar­ratt start­ed record­ing all 185 orig­i­nal Bea­t­les com­po­si­tions on the ukulele. They’re mak­ing a new song avail­able every week until July 31, 2012, the eve of the Lon­don Olympics. And, in each instance, they’re work­ing with dif­fer­ent accom­pa­ny­ing artists. As you’ll see, the styles and approach­es can vary wide­ly, and the ukulele sounds can be more or less pro­nounced. Just com­pare Black­bird and She Said She Said (two of my Bea­t­le faves) and you will see what I mean. To down­load the tracks, vis­it Roger and Dav­e’s web site, or load this feed to iTunes or your RSS read­er.
