    If you just tell me the name of it, and tell me if you are stuck on the key of D or not, and I'll see if I can find an easier one on the internet for you. I've had a bit of experience in doing that for songs that I play myself.

    Cool, thanks for the tip. I'll search for that chart.

    A quick note that a simplified version of all the songs I'm working on learning was just published! So now I just need to learn them.

    I really appreciate all the help. I have a lot of good information to study thanks to everyones input.

    Ciao, Jerry

    Hi Jerry,

    Unlike what many have said here, I would just play the chords as specified, except for two. My little chord books lists all the chords except for the 7+5 and the slash chord. For slash chords I usually just ignore the specified base note and play what's to the left of the slash. For the 7+5 chord, my book doesn't have those, but it does have 7b5 chords. Unless I am mistaken, to convert a 7b5 to a 7+5, all you would need to do is move the finger playing the 5 up to frets and then the 5 would be augmented.

    Despite the scary names some of the chords aren't that difficult. The Asus4 is a two-finger chord and the A7sus4 is a one-finger chord.

    Here's another on-line chord resource which has a bunch of alternate chords which I find helpful.

    So here is my first draft of tabbing out the song with lyrics for a Low G Uke. Initially I plan to just learn the chords, then probably to play melody as well.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/1geuip8m6j...20Uke.pdf?dl=0

    I struggled with some of the chord shapes over several different sources, especially the E chords. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jerry
