postcards from italy and elephant gun were the first songs i learned on the ukulele! i know they were squished together, but awesome job! my one suggestion is to really put some emphasis on the 3-2-0 between the chords on PfI, to me that makes the song. Other than that, kudos!

LOL jklang on my other reply to this.. i was like taking a shower, and i like realized what you were talking about the 3-2-0 haha... and yeah i agree, it gets hard to emphasize that kinda, im guessing just strum the top string a little harder than the rest rite?
