Lately I've been ending with an upbeat arrangement that I wrote of Sonny Chillingworth's slack-key guitar song Lilo's Mele (Grandsons Lullabye).
    Hi Sopher, do you have a tab for the campanella arrangement of "Wayfaring Stranger" that you can share? I'd love to take a look.
    All the best,

    I hope you are playing the big LFdM baritone !

    I always play alone in the corner. Just finished posting a video so I am in withdrawal mode again until I found the next song. I may try Ed Sheeran new song name ‘ Perfect’ but of course instrumental as usual. No singing and dancing here!

    Lately I've been playing whatever exercises I can adapt from Christopher Parkening's Guitar Method Volume 1 (classical). If something doesn't adapt well to four strings, I get out a guilele.

    Best for me are the songs I like to sing. Finnish folk songs and older popular tunes that are accompanied with my uke.

    Frequently I'll run across a youtube video, but I won't actually watch it; I just read the description to get the chords. Then I make my own song and strum pattern from the chords

    I like old standards, jug band tunes, and some other stuff: Walkin' My Baby Back Home, Ain't She Sweet, Sweet Sue, My Blue Heaven, Boodle-Am-Shake, Washington At Valley Forge, Lindberg Hop, Ukulele Lady, Get Out Those Old Records, Let's Talk Dirty In Hawaiian . . .
    These Days my favourite seems to be If I Had You.
