“Jump In” Ukulele Tutorial vlog #19
For VLOG#19 I wanted to try something different and a bit off the topic of art but still on solid creative ground. Since I had a few request for more info about my song “Jump In” I decided to push my artistic boundaries and try my hand at making an ukulele tutorial. This episode ended up being waaaay more involved than previous ones and also twice as long.
I am pretty new to song writing, but I hope that by sharing my efforts with you it will inspire you to explore your own musical talents by singing or playing along, writing your own tune of getting motivated to learn how to play an ukulele or some other instrument.
I will be back with more art tutorials next month, but it you would like to see more uke tutorials let me know by leaving a comment below. Also, if you dig it feel free to share this video with your friends!

Here are the lyrics to Jump In:
Wake up bright and early to the morning breeze
before da sun rises above *Na Pali
Coffees in the pot, oatmeals on the table top
soon it will be light enough outside to see.
C’mon sleepy head get up out of bed
grab your cup and fill your bowl.
Were eating breakfast on the road
cause its time to go
down the mountain that how well roll
…and well be singin’
Briny briny, sunny shiny, lets surf our days away
sandy toes and freckled noses the ocean is where we like to play
Lets all jump in!
When da waves come head high then it time to ride.
down to the beach, like right away
Don’t make me wait, no can hesitate
when the surf is up and it’s time to glide
We’ll spend all day under the sun
out in the water having fun.
Lets not talk about responsibility
because today we live like ocean royalty.
…and we’ll be singin’
Briny briny, sunny shiny, lets surf our days away.
sandy toes and frecked noses the ocean is where we like to play
Lets all jump in!
“Hey all you **Kane & Wahines out there, get those surfboards waxed up and get on down to the beach. We got 3-5 swells coming in from the south and its a beautiful day. Aloha!”
When the day is ***pau and were all worn out
We’ll build a fire and talk story about our day.
while our food is cookin’ we’ll be a-braggin’
but lets not speaks of the ones that got away.
Now in the late of night
when the stars are shining bright,
were off to to bed with drowsy smiles.
Well dream about the slides and watery curls,
thankful for our surfin’ lifestyle.
