This is possibly my favorite ukulele performance ever. I worked up both John and James' parts a few years ago. I couldn't really figure out what James was doing so I transcribed his part into a more John King-y campanella style. Very fun to play.

It's definitely one of my favorites too. John King was one of the greats, and I love the sound of that Stradelele too. John and James together - that's gold, Jerry!

Such a shame we lost John King, he was such an accomplished player. At least we still have the recordings.
