I think the results may confirm that the ukulele is very much C instrument. I am very happpy that there are 4 songs who's keys are F. F is bit hard key for guitar because it has F and Bb chord, which are hard to play. But it is easy to play in ukulele. Any way I have to practice C G and F keys frist.
