I'm looking for a challenge! Throw me your hardest tabs that are fun to play!

I've mastered John King's Cello Prelude so im not afraid of any hard classical. Im not limited by genre either. I just want something fun to play.

"Allemande" (My Lady Hunssdon's Puffe) by John Dowland. This piece is contained in Tony Mizen's "Lute to Uke" Early music for the ukulele book.
The challenging feature in this lively & joyful composition is the rapid ornamentations which are used to create the wonderful feel.

Could always have a go at playing 'Duelling Banjo's' ( Ukes )...Backwards

I second the "Puffe"! It's a tough one to get through smoothly and musically!

Great suggestions guys!

Magic ukulele waltz sounds super fun to play, that'll be first on the list to learn.

I guess i'll work on my tremelo picking to get through bumblebee but that will definitely be a good challenge! great suggestion.

Is there a way to get the allemande tabs/sheet music without buying the whole book? Like does anyone have a pdf of it? It sounds great and I'd love to learn it!
