New Years Edition! News and Top 10 list!

I have a couple things to address today, first off, happy new year!  I had a lovely time hanging with friends on a horse farm in Coldwater Ontario.  Good times.  Also, for Christmas this year I got this wonderful little guy:

Yup, my very own Ukulele!  And it's all I've been playing for the last 2 weeks.  I love it so much, that tomorrow night (Sunday Jan 7th) I'll be playing a show at the Holy Oak, with only the Ukulele.  I'll play some old standards, maybe a couple Beatles tunes.  Should be fun! 

That brings me to my New Years resolution.  I started a new Tumblr account called "52 Songs Written By Other People".  (Click the title to go to the page).  I plan on learning a new songs every week and putting a video up!  I'm the worst at learning songs, so this will be a pretty big challenge.  Tune in this Monday, hopefully I'll have it ready!

Now finally, my end of year tradition, I give you my top 10 albums of 2012 (in no particular order).  Please check these out if you haven't all ready.
