Looks pretty cool! Although flipping through it some of the melody notes go below middle C which is the lowest note on my uke. Oh well, I'll adapt.

You could use this to justify the purchase of another uke, and string it low G... :)

Good idea but I just bought a new tenor last week. Better not push my luck. :o

I just play the octave on the G string. It doesn't bother me at all.

Well, it's not uke tablature, that's just the vocal line.

But, yeah, if you want to go lower for fingerpicking the melody, you could always just try a low-G string on one of your ukes. (Assuming you have more than one, since most of us do. :p)

Just checked and all pages are present and accounted for. '56 is the year I was born so I'll be able to hold onto that number.
Gift #1 was her allowing me to go down to Nashville and buy my Mainland Red Cedar tenor. This was gift 2 and she informed me that there is something else arriving in the mail. It's like it's my birthday/month!

I got mine a few days ago, and I think I have played most of the songs by now, including picking out most of the melody lines. So far, I haven't found a note lower than the G on my low G tenor.
