Hey guys, I've spent some time over the past couple of days transcribing Paul Luongo's version from the link that Fatboicorp posted when he started this thread. I contacted Paul and he was up for me taking a crack at it. I have completed my first draft and sent it off to him to get his input. I can't post the tab until he is comfortable that it represents his performance adequately but this Midi File (http://www.dominator.ukeland.com/Images/tears_in_heaven.mid)will give you an idea of what it will be like.

There are a couple of things that make this arrangement stand out and sound good that I didn't pick up on the first few times I watched the video. The first being that Paul tunes his G String tenor to ADF#B with a Low A. He is from Canada (and quite possibly has participated in the Langley Institute where James Hill studied) and this tuning is sort of a standard with them.

The second thing is that the original song is in the key of A major. So this arrangement is in the original key and the higher tuning just provides a beauty that isn't quite the same with GCEA tuning.

Hopefully, Paul will find some time to offer his input and we can get the tab posted for those interested.

sweetness. Pretty sure he isn't left-handed, though, considering that the DC symbol on his shirt is reversed. maybe he wanted it to be harder for us to copy. :D

Oh yeah, I meant to say something about this in my post. Paul says he doesn't know why his camera is doing this but he is indeed right handed. I'm guessing it must have something to do with the software he's using to edit and upload his vids.

I found some tabs here: http://home.arcor.de/crazydawg/ukulele/tears_in_heaven.txt

Pretty basic and not always accurate (but close), it's an excellent starting point.

*Edit* Someone already beat me to it. Dangnabit, I searched hard for that one.
