Beirut - Postcards From Italy

A very special Green Man Session for you this week. A great friend of ours whom has worked with us for quite a few years was taken seriously ill earlier this year. Before Becky knew she was ill, she had emailed to say how much she was looking forward to Beirut performing at Green Man this year. Sadly due to this illness, Becky couldn't make the festival so we asked Beirut if they would record a backstage session wishing Becky all the best in her recovery. They happily agreed...

A second collaboration between the great "Beirut" and director Alma Harel.
From the album "The Gulag Orkestar"<br/><br/>

The times we had
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
We put our feet just where they had, had to go
Never to go

The shattered soul
Following close but nearly twice as slow
In my good times
There were always golden rocks to throw
at those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

And I will love to see that day
That day is mine
When she will marry me outside with the willow trees
And play the songs we made
They made me so
And I would love to see that day
Her day was mine

Очень нравится то, что делают эти две барышни!

мне ОЧЕНЬ нравится

Beirut - "Postcards From Italy" at Haldern Pop Festival 2010.

An instrumental cover of Beirut's song Postcards From Italy.

Luckily, I love the song enough that I didn't mind listening to it all day :P Tabs will be available on the forums at within the next day or so.

This is a tutorial video on how to play Postcards From Italy on the ukulele. It goes over the tuning, chords, hammer-ons, strumming, and timing. The song has two very distinct parts, and it switches from one part to the next in about the middle of the song.

This is a tutorial for beginners, but it is a somewhat advanced song that will take a beginner (like myself) a long time to learn and requires a lot of practice. Of course, the song is awesome and was originally played on a
