Here's some feedback: n00b my arse! That was extremely well done.

I guess if I had to nitpick, I suppose I'd say you need better recording on your audio... that's about it :)

Daniel, this is really good! You should definitely keep posting more videos. This is not an easy one to do and you have really good tone and musicality. Mike

that was great. like Mike said, you have great musicality. I've seen some people that start right off learning one of jake's songs and I can't watch/listen to the whole thing. Your's is definitely top notch.

Thank you Whetu! My Uke has got an active pickup though for somereason the output level is really low so its unfortunately unreliable =(

Thanks RyRod, really appreciate the comment. There is SO much to learn in terms of feel and technique with his music, even if they aren't always technically challenging!
