Really nice job!

Is there a good version of that in notation or tab that anyone would recomend?

Whoa! That was nice.

Is that a fretless uke?

The version I recorded is pretty much straight out of John King's "Classical Ukulele" book. Besides the great arrangements it has, it also comes with a CD of him performing them. Great stuff!

It's a soprano Flea. The plastic fretboard does make it look fretless though.

Great job! Fingerpicking on the Flea sure sounds nice.

Fantastic! I, too, had wondered if it were fretless. Great job!

Thank you! The Flea has been my easy access, go to whenever uke lately. It amazes me that John King used a concert fluke for the "Classical Ukulele" recording. He makes it sound on par with $1000+ instruments.

Thanks for the lead on John King's book. I just ordered it from Amazon. Looks like it's got some great songs in it that I'm looking forward to learning.
