Every ukulele player needs to know “Ukulele Lady,” a classic bit of uke silliness from the 1920s (when the first big ukulele craze hit), and here’s a good lesson in how to play it.

Mike Lynch, aka Ukulele Mike, is one of the most engaging uke teachers you’ll ever find on video. He has his own channel on YouTube where he generously shares a huge number of free tutorials, taking you from complete beginner to fairly advanced ukulele player. In addition  to his lessons, he has produced books and CDs that are well worth checking out at his website, www.ukulelemikelynch.com. You’ll even find the details of his ukulele  cruises to Hawaii!

“UIkulele Lady” has been covered by many, many artists over the decades (sometimes without a single ukulele among the  instruments, which just seems wrong to me!). One I’m particularly fond of is the Bette Midler  cover; I understand she took ukulele  lessons from Jim Beloff especially for making the recording.
