May 2014 – International Communication Project Month of Action #ICP2014 #ukulele

Mystic Moonshine – So you want to know what the future holds?

Mystic Moonshine – Ukulele Original – Liz Panton

True story – names and locations changed ever so slightly to protect the guilty!

Very pleased with myself that I managed to write it the morning of 1st January 2013 and then performed it the same afternoon at Strings Attached Folk Club – a good start to the New Year. I didn’t have much time to think about the music though so I just did it in C, F and G that time.
