Nice one Keonepax. All that's missing are a few "Doowahs".

Thanks, Jim! Heh heh, yes, you're right, and to tell you the truth, I tried adding a few, but I just couldn't get it right. Maybe I needed some female voices in there!

Lovely, I like the lyrics. You can't help but feeling sorry for the poor guy in the white sport coat. :)
If you need a female voice, next time ask me! :cheers:

How about playing

instead of Doodoowah?

By the way, I love your ukulele.

Thanks, Jim! Great suggestion! That would work! :)

Reminds me of when I tried to do Minnie Riperton's "Loving You," and instead of trying to sing the high note, I just let the ukulele sing for me!

I don't know how to yodel, so I'll let the ukulele yodel for me when I play a Jimmie Rodgers song.

Thanks for sharing that uke yodel lick! If you have a video with that lick, please post it. I want to see it!
