Not sure where to post this since it's not really my tutorial or my tips on how to play a song. Feel free to move it if it's in the wrong area.

Now this is my kind of tutorial. I came across this while looking for some help with this song, "Into the wild" by LP. This guy goes through everything you need to learn how to play a song. Chords, shapes, bpm, original chords, alternate chords, original strum, alternate strum patterns. Everything a musically challenged idiot like myself needs to know.

There may be other sites like this, but I don't know of them. Check him out.

Really like the organization and completeness of these tutorials - wish he would do some oldies. No disrespect to what is being offered, but just came up in a different musical era.

I don't like the fact that he is "teaching" using a plectrum ...
I use a plectrum occasionally for certain effects and sounds ...
A freer and purer Uke sound comes from strumming using fingers ...
But feel free to "hate" me for saying so .:p

It's to bad he doesn't have more songs, but I can imagine that it takes quite a bit of time to produce both uke and guitar versions of songs.
