Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Random prompt selection for the skirmish 'Pretty Little Picture' from a Stephen Sondheim book. This made me think of loved ones and in particular the pretty little pictures of my granddaughter on social media. The verse melody and chord progression is most likely borrowed from somewhere, but I can't think of where at the moment.

Lyrics:

Pretty Little Pictures
Ukelele chords C - ooo1; F - 2o1o; G - o232;

Intro/verse

Pictures, taking pretty little pictures
Makes me wanna kiss ya
All over the world

Floating, going higher than the clouds floating
Drifting round emotin
All over the world

Every day I think of you and I can’t help but smile
Sunny laughing pretty little pictures rock my world a while

Pictures, taking pretty little pictures
Makes me wanna kiss ya
All over the world

Repeat intro

On those days when I just can’t do it I just think of you
Smiling back in pretty little pictures makes life a different hue

Pictures, taking pretty little pictures
Makes me wanna kiss ya
All over the world

Repeat intro



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

What a perfect sweet song. Love that it was inspired by your granddaughter!

This has a real singalong feel about it. I can hear the kids joining in for the choruses :). Uplifting skirmish! Smile

Uke and melodica! I didn't know you had that in your back pocket. Neat-o! Warm and fuzzy at it's finest. Nicely done!

Great work. Love the imagery. You could try lifting the chorus melody up a few notes to make it stand out from the verse and bridge sections. Could be fun to try out, I wonder what the chorus would sound like with a female harmony on top of it too?

This is so sweet Andy, bursting with simple heartfelt sentiment. I love these lines: Pictures, taking pretty little pictures
Makes me wanna kiss ya
All over the world
Great use of language and imagery! I can just see your grampa face lighting up every time you see her.

Love this - it has a real Prine-ian feel to it, especially in the choruses. I also always love melodica!

This is a perfect sappy little ukulele love song. I love how you switch up picking and strumming. The melodica solo is the icing on the cake.

Ukulele lends itself to this song. It's so cheerful! And ukulele and melodica work together very well.
