Seeing the request for "Simple and Clean" reminded me of my favorite piano arrangement of "First Love" (http://youtube.com/watch?v=CLuSuXHD9h0)

I didn't know that Herb Ohta Jr. had covered it, but I'm particularly fond of this ukulele cover (http://youtube.com/watch?v=fIHtsblVZ-I) which I'd like to embellish on if anyone had the tabs. The melody integrates well with the chord shapes, but it would definitely give me a better idea and make the learning process much faster with tabs. Anyone?

Hey

this is a really nice song to play. When i first started playing the ukulele and i was searching through youtube, Dominator had a video up on you tube with him playing this song! It was beautiful! I pm Dom back then and asked for it because i was playing this at my cousins funeral.
He was nice enough to send it over.
He's the person to ask.

So cheers

here is a mostly picking version with someone strumming in the backround

might be a little harder than the other one tho

I think its about time I actually try to learn one of Dom's tabs. I always shyed away from them because they seemed so difficult, but there are just so many good songs that I should level up and learn to play. This would be one of them.

I PM'd Dominator and he said that he never tabbed the song. I emailed the guy on YouTube who performed it and he said he would send it over.
Grappler do you still have them that you can share?

I just realized I never updated you all with the tab.
I emailed the guy from this ukulele version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIHtsblVZ-I) and he sent me a rough skeleton of the tab:
