    Default The Ukulele national anthem

    I know, it's been done a million times - but I still like it!
    Definitely not the Iz version!

    This little tune is quite a challenge to play it well
    I like how you added some jazz flavour to it.
    Bravo bravo. Please keep them coming
    I notice your thumb pick. Glad I am not the only one !

    it is such a great song I guess that is why everybody plays it. Really enjoyed your version. I am liking the single runs connecting the chords which form a lovely jazzy texture to the arrangement. keep them coming. You have your own style which is what we should all be striving for. ......Alas I have also subjected the world to a version of this tune and instantly got a thumbs down on YouTube!!!!!!

    Thanks Brenda! Yes, I used to feel a little embarrassed that people would see me using a thumb pick on a uke. I guess I got over it.

    Beautiful. Love the outside note choices - very musical.

    Thank you! This tune qualifies as a pop song but I have always wanted to approach it like a jazz standard.
