A Little Morning Music

Trouble in a Three Piece Suit

Ring My Bell
Words & Music by Ashley Barrett

My parents bought me a Ukulele for my birthday. Since I already play guitar it was an incredibly easy transition (use standard Soprano tuning, though I really want to try out Tenor tuning next). I've always been more inclined to write my own music than play someone else's (though I can now play a few covers), plus I think you learn quicker when you have to compose your own music. Anyways, I could wax poetic about finding my musical identity, but I'm sure that would bore you to tears, so instead I'll just say this: This is what makes me happiest. I may not be a great philosophical song writer like I have always wanted to be, but writing little ditties like these just put a smile on my face. I'm okay with that. So I hope you enjoy!


  1. You have such a lovely voice! And I think your "little" ditties are really quite charming. They definitely put a smile on my face:) Thank you so much:)
