Playing Tom Guy's (of Bluegrass Ukes) amazing arrangement of "Rainbow Connection" on my MP Custom tenor. This uke was originally set up for high-G but I switched it out for a low-G for this arrangement. As the wound low-G string is thinner than the unwound high-G string, it buzzes when played open. Someday I'll get around to fixing the nut to account for this.

Thanks everyone! I came across the tabs from a previous post from Ukulele Dude. You can find it here:

I changed up the end a little to make it closer to the original song (just did a variation of the bridge).

Wow Chris, you come to the ukulele from a very sensitive place mate, and play with such beautiful feeling, always.

Would love the tabs- the only reason I play the Ukulele is because my wife wanted to learn that intro on banjo...I guess it is a long story at this point. In any event, magic- take a song that is to me totally silly and whimsical and give it heart and emotion in gobs. Magic.
