Matt's Mega Ukulele Challenge! What's In A Song?

Congratulations to winners Paul King, Linda Knight and Jane Stevenson on the winning entries this time. I know I’m only meant to pick two but I couldn’t. To be honest I would have liked everyone to have won because you were all so amazing. I loved Paul’s storytelling and lovely performance, Linda’s use of both chord melody and singing and Jane put a bit smile on my face with her lyrics. Don’t forget to PM me with your addresses for your badges. 

Thank you to all the entries. Please keep them coming - everyone is in with a good chance of winning eventually. There was no more than a whisker in it between about ten of them this time!


For the next challenge we’re going to get personal! Don’t worry - nothing scary. For me, music is one of the most important things in life. It brings me joy, comfort and is filled with memories. Sometimes a song can transport me to a faraway place or time. So the brief is simple. Play us a song that means something special to you. It needn’t be super philosophical - it could be a song you can’t listen to without smiling. Perhaps it was the first song at your wedding , or maybe it even helped you through a difficult time. Have fun and embrace the beauty and power of music!

Because I’m going to be so busy with the festivals I’m going to give you plenty of time for this one. Entries close Monday 12th August. Can’t wait to hear what you come up with. 

Ps. One of my special songs is the Hawaiian Wedding Song. Here’s a picture of me playing it at my wedding (Marylebone Town Hall where Paul and Linda McCartney got married!)
