This is a fun song with great lyrics:

I shortened the chorus to make it easier to play. And the trickiest part is where the chords go E7 - Eb7 - D7. I suggest you use the higher voicing for the E7... 4445.

By the way, Michael Franks' "The Art of Tea" is an awesome album.

Another great 5-star video! I really am impressed with the sound quality and balance between uke and vocals. Do you record the vocals as a separate track and remix afterwards?

Thanks for the nice comments! Russ, you can have the poster!

jjsdad, on this one, I just sang and played directly into my video camera. I've found the sound to be better when the camera is closer to me. I didn't use any special mike, just the one in the camera.

I figured out how to play the uke intro and added that part later, so that is the only special editing I did on the soundtrack.
