This is one of the first songs I learned on uke. Featuring my Pono mango sprucetop that traveled from Hawaii --> Japan --> Alabama over the years to get to me!

P.S. I'd just woken up from a nap, so my voice is pretty foggy.

That was really nice. Even on the high notes, your intonation was great. :)

You sure that's a bari? Looks more like a tenor to me.

This is one of the first songs I learned on uke.

Me too! I think this was actually either my first or second in fact!

Thanks everyone! Raygf, the chords you posted are very close to what I play. I'll try to find the online sheet music I used.

(Edit: Found it! This is the version I learned, from Dr. Uke: http://www.doctoruke.com/dreamalittledreamofme.pdf
Instead of C#7 I played Bbm7, and I usually leave out the Am7-5 chords.)

And yes, it's a tenor, tuned low G. Any suggestion for new strings? My Worth clears are getting kind of old and dull.

Natalie,
I just restrung my Kala Travel Tenor with Freemont Black Line Low G and they are very nice. From time to time I try low G and have not enjoyed it much, but I'm liking these strings on the Kala Travel. I plan on posting a short video with it and my Kala Acacia tenor for a new friend who asked about them. The Acacia is strung with high g Aquila and I want to restring it with some Worth Clears, but not right now. I like Aquilas, but only on certain ukes. They seem too stiff on the Acacia tenor, but i wouldn't have anything else on my flukes and flea. My Pono Tenor has Worth Clears in B tuning.
Regards,
Ray

I also missed the Bm7 in the bridge. I like the way the Bm7 sounds when I play the D with the first string 5th fret before it. I also like the way the Bbm7 sounds as a substitute for the C#7. Thanks again for posting the tune.
