That was more laid back than I'd imagined. Admittedly I don't know all of Zappa though. Well played Erik, I enjoyed it.

Thank you! Yes it is one of his calmer songs, I thought it would translate well to ukulele.

9/10 for the performance + 99/10 for the comfy dog that can't wait for you to stop so he (she?) can go to sleep.

Where did you get the music for it, just curious

Sofa and TYCOWYD/WTUPOYB I did by ear from the originals. For Peaches I used Pollo Del Mar's cover of the song to figure most of the chords out, and then a combination of that version and the original to figure out the lead lines I used. And for Peaches, once I had the chords figured out I played the song a step down from the original key to give me more open chords to work with.
