I wanted the first post on this blog to be one of the first songs that really pulled me towards the ukulele. I’m not a huge Dylan guy but, as a good uke song can do, I was won over by this version. It’s fairly easy to play and sing and the bare bones uke version shows how songs don’t have to be complex to be brilliant. I love how the chord progression sounds and the overlapping turnaround between verses. Poetic lyrics don’t hurt either (I’ve always seen Dylan’s genius in that department).
When I pick up my uke and start playing without thinking about it… this is the song that comes out of my fingers.
