I was surprised at how nice When You Wish Upon a Star sounds on the ukulele. Has a very Hawaiian feel actually. Ukulele Mike teaches us how to play When You Wish Upon a Star on the ukulele with ukulele chords displayed on the screen in this ukulele tutorial. There is also a link to the lyrics and chords for the song, which is from the Disney song in the movie Pinocchio. This is a great ukulele tutorial, enjoy!

Candy Colored Ukuleles

Not sure why this photo caught my eye this morning. Candy colored ukuleles hanging from a chain? I am drawn to the yellow one. My ukulele is a pretty simple pineapple soprano and I am thrilled with it, but who doesn’t dream of their next ukulele purchase?
