David Barlia,

New Orleans by Hoagy Carmichael.

This video contains the rarely played middle section which was originally the Verse in the sheet music.

I shot this with my old phone out in my garage with a great friend and Uke player David Barlia.  David is one of those rare musicians that can most often just play and figure out an old song if you just hand him a ukulele and insist on it.  If he was a pianist he would aptly be called a "piano man".      If I had to consider anyone a teacher it would be David, who handed me a Red Maholo and taught me the chords to Five Foot Two.  Check out his websites:  &

David is a Flash developer, video game designer, learning slide Hawaiian guitar, chef  and an active freelance ukulele/singer.

Just to mention a few of his many talents.
