It is Holy Wednesday night and I am trying to figure out if there is any way I can play "Were You There" on the ukulele for Maundy Thursday Communion. The fact is, there is almost no way to make it sound contemplative with either the Soprano or the Concert sized instruments. They want to be perky and bounce around. The tone of the service is contemplative... Perhaps as a sing-along prelude? Postlude? Maybe I should rush-order a baritone?
Anyway, this quandary has motivated me to do something else with my evening. I am, therefore, adding a "Ukulele" subject heading to my "Labels" list. This will be the first and will contain other relevant links below....

If you have any suggestions concerning my current issue, by the way, do let me know. My colleague Matt is already playing something on the guitar for the anthem so it may be a case of "less is more".
