It's Caroline - Leaning on a Lamppost!

I asked my banjolele friend Caroline Robson, whom I met at the last GFS convention, to let me study her version of Leaning on a Lamppost - she's so much better than me, I can't keep up with this... she tells me that the solo doesn't have all the right chords in it, but I think this is pretty darned impressive - and fast! Don't you? I think it'll be a very long time before you see my version! But I'm working on this.....and that Gibson UB2 is lovely.......

Thanks for letting me post this, Caroline! I know it will be enjoyed!


  1. Glad you enjoyed it! Keep practising and I'll see you very soon!

  2. Glad you liked it! See you very soon at the GFS convention in Blackpool!

  3. Hey - I love this....the kids and I just sung along (we are newly venturing into the world of ukulele). Thank you :)

  4. I love this.....the kids and I just sang along. We are newly venturing into the world of the uke. One day in, one song down...and now they want to work on Leaning on a Lamppost :)

    1. Glad you're enjoying your new-found world of uke! The Formby solos are very skilful... Caroline is a good friend of mine, on the same journey..... the Formby style is a journey all of its own! Thanks for your kind comments, much appreciated!
