Finally, after a few months of cleaning it up, I can play it to my liking. It's
not perfect, but it was only the second take and I didn't think that sitting
there any longer and trying again would produce better results.

Thanks
for all the people that put up some kind of tutorial and the videos of Jake's
live versions. I took parts from each one and tried to make it my
own.

Played on the custom Cedar and Walnut Talsma Tenor with Southcoast
medium tension strings.

Really awesome, that fan stroke percussion on the mute was on point. I need to get mine like that.

Fantastic work Ryan. You made great strides with this arrangement in a relatively short period. Awesome stuff.

Brilliant! You definitely made it your own. This is in no way meant as a criticism, but don't you ever feel like cracking a smile when playing this tune? Shoot, if I could play like that, I'd be grinning from ear to ear. :D

Thank's Colin! It's still hard for me to get just right...

Thanks! I love playing this instrument.

Mahalo, Dom! I threw in some of your improv part and threw some other parts out so I wouldn't be biting Jakes style any more than I had to.

Ha, thanks. No problemo. I'm smiling inside...This song is difficult, so this was my "concentrating, but still trying to have a pleasant look on my face" face.

Thank you sir! The uke is definitely sounding better every day.

That muted stroke was amazing (the part at the bridge). Do you have a tutorial on how to do that kind of stroke?

Thanks! I'll see what I can do as far as the tutorial. It's a tough one to explain.
