Here's a nice little swing number I recorded this morning. The great Harold Arlen tune from 1933 - "It's Only A Paper Moon". Uke/guitar duet. Instruments: Talsma Tenor Uke and Taylor GS Mini Guitar.

This is one of my favorite tunes to play. I don't sound anything like you did however. Nice job. Thanks.

That was swell! Also one of my favorite tunes. There's a great rendition on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgNef0mgOeI) with Nat King Cole, the Oscar Peterson trio, and some more jazz legends I'll bet you'd enjoy.
Also, I live just a stone's throw away from you in Silver Spring, MD! In fact, I played on a Takoma Park Babe Ruth league baseball team sponsored by House of Musical Traditions back in the day. I'm away at college for now, but I've been looking for someone to play some jazz uke with this summer if you're interested. Let me know!
