If you have it, post it. There's no reason to have a topic full of begging posts.

I think there's enough videos of Jake playing it as well as tabs for it that a tutorial isn't necessary. If you want to make a tutorial for it, go for it. But to be honest that's one of the few songs I'm purposely not learning.

Seriously? pompous much? lol. I would venture to say there are more than a few folks on here that can play it just fine. And there are vids everywhere, so let's not act like you have found the keys to the kingdom lol.

There's a power tab out there that does the job just fine.

And what if UkeToaster is Jake in disguise you guys are dissing. Remember "Toastman" and other "toast" references in Jake's albums?

This one is good, I used it when I started out on uke.... it doesn't get to hung up on playing identically to Jake note for note, thats more something you work out from listening the cd, or in my case lets you work out your own style. Seems like a really nice guy also.

It was made by our very own 'UkuCouS'

I've never liked copying someone else like an "Elvis Impersonator"....or in this case a "Jake Impersonator" (not that there is anything wrong with that!...I guess) I prefer to start from scratch and work out my own version. In this case I chose the same key Am, got the chord progression and worked out the melody around those chords. My version is simpler and uses more lower fret positions than the other versions but still contains the chord progressions and melody so I'm happy.

You've got to be kidding me. I see people "borrowing" references all the time. Take for example, your nick and avatar. I don't for a moment believe you actually have anything to actually do with the LOTR character.

I'm sure Jake has better things to do with his time than come here and try to get us to support his making of a tutorial. Like working on his official tabs book or putting out a DVD with any tutorials he might actually make.

I'm not personally interested in Beatles' music but unlike some I appreciate the gesture.

Hey, who wants my Goldfinger tutorial? WHAT? NOBODY? COME ON!!!!!

Guys, please be respectful. If you don't want a tutorial, then go on elsewhere with your posts. There is no need to have the "pompous" type attitude I'm seeing displayed here. The member is new. It may be better to be nice and welcoming.

I've yet to put in the time to learn more than the main riff of a song. I've spent most of my time working on technique and writing my own stuff since I've started the Uke. I like the beatles, but I'm far from being a fan. That said, this song really is amazing on uke, even if I didn't learn the whole thing, I would love to see a tutorial.

Any help I can get would be fantastic thank you very much. Now on the subject of Jake he is sooo good that it is more likely that I find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow than me ever being half as good as he is SO right now I'm trying to copy the uke boy the happyest person I know this kid is great! And he sings too

let's hear you play it before you make a tutorial. Plenty out there, you must have something worth learning if you want us to watch it.

there are never too many videos out there... I'm sure if there were 100 tutorials, you could pull something off all of them... I know I have..

I say birng it !

Its just a normal PDF, Should work fine, I'll upload it to mediafire. I also didnt think i could play it, i can play the first page off by heart and all the strumming, Now its just a case of remembering the rest. I wish i could strum like Jake, Need to find a few flamenco strumming tutorials!

Due to copyright reasons, please do not post the tabs. At one point, Dominator did have them up but he removed them after being kindly asked by Jake and his agent/publisher/manager.

I really never understood this. I mean I get recording and selling bootleg music, but wouldn't an artist want all the people they can get learning and doing their music? It seems to me that it is just more adoration and exposure. And I am not speaking directly to this situation with Jake, I see it everywhere with headline artists.

I'd like it if we could steer clear from it here. If anyone really feels a need to talk about it, dig through the threads and pull up and old topic. In fact, that aren't even that old because they get started so often.

I'm not that big a fan of Jake's. I know he very good at the picking bit but, to me, they're are better ukulele pickers than him. Besides, I'm not all that good at fingerpicking myself.

I'd love to hear those other players. Who are you talking of?

Ditto. Don't get me wrong, he is an amazing talent... his music just don't really move me.

I can kinda see that. It's not that he's not the best. He one hundred precent is. He's the best in the world at what he does. Flawless technique, redic clean attack and his love for the uke is no comparison. No other uke player has opened for buffet, played at Ted or was invited to play for the queen of freaking England.

I do respect what he has done for the uke and I wish I could play like him.. he's still not one of my favs. It's just what you prefer. Some people like to listen to instrumentals others enjoy I'm a Queen.

Some people like to listen to instrumentals

That's what it really comes down to for me. I am more a fan of the singer/player. Which is a bit odd because I do many guitar instrumentals. Here is the most recent one I did, if anyone cares lol. http://www.acbaltimore.com/music/LIGHTINGRIVER.mp3

I'm closing this thread. It seems as though the OP is not returning with a tutorial and the thread is starting to head in a not so great direction.
