This one is not as smooth playing as the others, it's more difficult and my strings felt like they were sticking to my fingers. I need more practice with this one, and I also think I am a bit limited with my fairly cheap uke and perhaps a more expensive one would be easier to play. When I get further up the neck the bar chords are really hard to get the notes to resonate.

Anyway hope you enjoy watching and listening :)

It sounds good to me! If your strings feel sticky it means you've been practicing. Get some Fingerease or Fast Fret string lube. It'll make your uke play like butter. And always wipe your uke with a clean cloth:rock:

Great job. I give all you guys credit for picking and strumming. I, for the life of me, cant get it. I rather just strum and sing. Again, great job. I wish I could get even a bit close to that.

Hey - This is a Beatles song. Remember how you said you had never heard one.....there you go.

Thanks Tokyo, I always wipe my uke, I think recording myself makes me feel nervous and my fingers feel clumsy. Didn't know about the fingergrease so thanks for that great tip.

Thanks deach I was totally surprised and overwhelmed by that one :D
