As with many parents of small children, the last several months of my life have been filled with songs from Disney’s animated film Frozen. The story of two sisters coming into their own has struck a chord with my little girl and led to a lot of singing in the house, in the car, in the bathtub—you get the picture. For me, the film soundtrack offered the best chance yet to play some songs with a budding singer. While playing the film’s catchy, Broadway-ready songs in the many original keys is a challenge. Playing them in the original keys couldn’t be easier than it was with the new D’Addario Planet Waves NS Ukulele Capo Pro on my uke.
