Hey all! I'm just a newbie at the ukulele. Thought I'd share my very first video... A cover of Mr. Jones from the Counting Crows. Let me know what you think!!

I wasn't sure at first how I would like the song played fast, but by the end of the song, I loved it. Counting crows is one of my all time favourite songs.

At the time I did this vid, I was really trying to learn the song on guitar, but being new to playing, I was having some serious issues with the F chord. When I realized how easy it was to do an F on uke, I went for it!! I realize it's a little faster temo, and that won't be to everyone's liking, but I think it kinda works! Think I should invest in a metronome nonetheless! Haha

Nice! I have been working on that song as well. I'll see if I can get it on video to share.
