    What is the origin of Crazy G ?

    This thread will likely be short lived, but I didn't really know where else to ask. "Crazy G" is a well known uke tune, but I don't know where it is from or even who wrote it. There are dozens of tutorials and covers on the web but I can't find so much as a credit or a wikipedia page or...
