Musicals I’ve Written (Am Writing)
Symphony Number One by Gary Jugert
I have about ten minutes finished of what should end up being about an hour long symphony.
The Bloody Rebellion of a Voodoo Zombie Cheerleader and Her Vigilante Ukulele Jazz Orchestra
This zombie cheerleader musical is finished and some of my favorite stuff is posted. And some of the stuff that’s pure crap too.
The Erotic Space Opera for Ukulele
This is my first musical I wrote. It’s finished and a lot of stuff is posted. Still my favorite thing I’ve written.
And I saved the Harmony ukulele I used for my own personal museum.
A Psycho-Analysis by Ukulele
This musical is finished. Get this: single setting, three actors, and skimpy attire. Yay!
Transvestites in Paris Hiltonville: A piccolo (and ukulele) concerto
First draft done. Backing sheet music posted. I have plenty of work ahead to finish the melodies for the piccolo.
The Praise of Folly:
Moriae Encomium by Desiderius Erasmus.
Muddy’s: The Last Great Coffee House
I just bought this book, but I already know it’s a musical just waiting to happen. If you were a patron of Muddy’s, please contact me with your memories.
This will be my project for summer 2013.
A gradus ad parnassum of fifteen stupidly difficult pieces in every major key for high G ukulele.
A new method for ukulele filled with evil and disparaging remarks on the nature of humanity.
Poetry I’m Setting to Music
My first songwriting project. (Don’t Go Here)
The Story of Another Civilization. (My on-again, off again dactylic hexameter project.)
Songs Collections by Others
Drinking songs done old school. (Still trying time to research these. Maybe this is why Frank Shay did such an incomplete job.)
Mostly vintage and a few modern songs I like. Stuff that I’ve worked on that doesn’t fit anywhere else.
Nice arrangements for solo ukulele. Seriously … these are nice. You want them in your life.
Helpful Ukulele Items
Very helpful for writing songs.
Very helpful for forcing yourself to learn new keys.
Don’t forget to switch the tuning to C.
Toy Piano & Sound Engineering Stuff
I’m working on playing every piece published in Pianist magazine. I’m working on some stuff for toy piano. I make racket flop out of my Macintosh. It’s all very high brow stuff.
