That's pretty cool. I have a version myself where I do more the straight forward arpegios, up and then back down, just finger picking, and for E I cheat and just fret three of the strings, because it's an arpegio, if I don't change the finger picking pattern, my trick is up and people will laugh and say "I see what you did there."

And then for the last verse I strum and use E7 as a change. I guess it sounds more traditional, but with your way you hear the chords also. Cool. :)

Thanks for using that Pono. I have it on the way it will be one of the first songs played. :D

According to Mr. Plainsong, those are the actual chords, no transcribing needed.... except that it's E and not E7 but E is such a pain on the uke and it goes back to Am so it's ok.... unless you're doing the full arpegio down and back up, in which case E7 doesn't work so well, but to strum n pick it works great. :)
