Era il 2011 quando Victoria Vox, cantautrice americana di cui abbiamo già parlato qui su YOUkulele, proponeva sul web il suo progetto: “Ogni settimana, per un anno intero, registrerò una cover sul mio ukulele!”.
Ripercorriamolo su YOUkulele! 52 cover che ispirarono un casino di persone e motivarono tanti neofiti…
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=… Embarking on a personal challenge to learn 52 covers (one a week) for 2011.
My rules: 1) Must learn it the week of (not before or after) 2) Must be memorized and 3) Must be performed live (no overdubs).
This is the 15th one: "Blackbird" is by Paul McCartney (but as usual credited to Lennon / McCartney). You can REQUEST a tune via twitter.com/victoriavox, email, or on my facebook.com/victoriavoxlovesyou page ;) thanks for listening ;) xo v.v. www.victoriavox.com
