thanks heaps for all your nice words of encouragment guys. instrumentals really aren't my thing at all...never quite feels right or something. I did this to submit, initially, as an entry into the "Hawaiian Theme" of week 3 of the 6 seasons of uke challenge...but just couldn't work out how to make it longer than 50-ish seconds!!! Plus, there was no way I was even gonna attempt to sing it. he he...But I videoed it anyway, for posteriity, or whatever, as a record...felt a shame to waste it. Cheers again gang. :o

cheers Pete. My feeling is that it's a little lethargic tempo wise, but that's something to work on I guess... :o

Man you drive me up the wall with this stuff- it just pours out...
Off to pull a little more of my hair out and practice some more.
Perfect tune Jon, and thanks for the inspiration as always
