Here's some art-work by Thiago Medeiros
Thanks Thiago for letting me share this
You can see some of my own attempts below...
The original song is minimal, lead by the piano and vocals. I was wondering whether I could turn it into a ukulele version and keep that same "half-dressed" feel to it. I started out by playing the piano part on the uke but soon realised that I needed to simplify what I was playing. The learning, arrangement and recording was all done over 3 or 4 hours. As usual, I spent more time trying to get the bloody thing into a video and uploaded than I did playing it. I don't love the effects I chose - this might have sounded better acoustic.
I'm not much of a singer, but I had a go at rumbling out my best baritone for you. I think this was my second take and I called it quits at that. It's not as good as Nick, but I'm happy to do a collaboration any time he wants ;-)
