This is my instrumental version of Ludwid von Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" on the ukulele, Chord medley style. This one I've copied right from memory. Someday, I might go into fingerpicking on the uke, but, for now, I like doing song from chord medley.

Very nice! The simple finger picking version was my first song on the uke! Thanks for sharing!

Cool...are you strumming/picking with a credit card? Caught a glimpse when you stood up at the end to stop the camera!

It was actually my old gym membership card I was strumming with. I can't use a regular guitar pick because it's too small for my hands. Oh, well. You gotta work with what you got.

Thanks, man. I appreciate it. Nothing against regular fingerpicking. I find it a little easier to play with the Chord Medley process because I can guess the chords outright.
