I must admit I felt a little uneasy

tiled up, not blueSometime last year I was messing with the changes to “Tangled Up in Blue” by Bob Dylan and worked out a somewhat comfortable way to play it on the ukulele.

I put down a basic rhythm track with a little bit of fingerpicking on it, doubled it (there are, like, nine verses) and then sang over it. The result is the sort of demo I make to show other people how I’m playing the song and to possibly use as a sort of stone-soup scratch track to be overdubbed into oblivion.

But life has its own ideas and other songs have pushed this aside in my active practice repertoire and yet I still feel kind of good about this very loose take and so I’ve decided to share it here.
