here's a rough attempt at a song that i'm sure everyone has done on guitar a million times. thought i'd give it a shot on my fluke. if you've played this on guitar before, you know it's chock full of weird chords. knowing i didn't have the skills to translate those weird chords over to a 4 string instrument, i did the next best thing: FAKED IT!!!

so here it is. first take:

and the tab i simplified(bastardized) the chords from:

thanks Ingrit! those are very kind words. i really wished i could have done a better take but the second one went so bad, i just decided to stick with the first.

cheers!

Hey Russ, I loved it!! I remember that song from the 90s, and liked it a lot then. I'm liking it even more now on the ukulele! You did a great job with it. :music:

Nice one, Russ. And faking it is not the next best thing- it is the best thing!
