The George Washington Method for Blues Ukulele: eclectic and wild, each story more surprising than the last. Includes a lovely tale about Willy’s parents, Maynard’s neoclassic—Pegamoose and the Gorgonzola Medusa, and the slowest song ever recorded—Nostalgia for the Vegetable State.

Warning: this CD has nothing to do with learning how to play the ukelele—the title is a bald-faced lie

– Part I: Martha and The Birchbark Kazoo
– Part II: Tina, My Braguina
