Aldrine did a lesson on Drop baby drop a while back. He did the opening picking a little different. A memeber, Poi Dog, typed it out. You can see the tab in this thread. (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6763&highlight=%27drop+baby+drop%27) 9th post.

Without playing what you posted i cannot comment. But you can compare what was taught to what you created.

i pretty much wrote out this tab from a video lesson taught by jody kamisato. this is my first one so i was just asking for opinions. i get most of my practice in while im at work so i cant view aldrine's awesome videos.

You can also check out TSH (http://www.tropicalstormhawaii.com/cgi-bin/view.cgi?pid=songlist&sc=tb) and compare yours to what they have.

I find it helpful to add measure separators. Just use | where appropriate. It's also helpful for someone other than yourself (you're already familiar with what you're representing) to include the note values. That's hard to do in typewriter style. I made myself some 4-line sheets (landscape seems to work better for me) using PowerPoint and blue lines. Then I just fill in the tabs by hand. If I need to share them I scan and print.
