    The way I do it is, index bar on 2, middle barring 3 and 3 and ring tip hitting 4.. takes time to get it in place but works after a while.

    Looks to be index, pinky, middle, ring. Can do single string or bar with the index. If too awkward, leave out the G string and play the other three.

    3. Ring finger on E string 3rd fret
    4. Pinky on C string 4th fret

    Then 5-3-5-3
    1. Index finger bars on 3rd fret
    2. Middle finger on A string 5th fret
    3. Ring finger on E string 5th fret

    Then 5-4-5-4
    Same as above but push the index finger to bar on 4th fret

    And the 3-1-4-2
    1. Index finger on E string 1st fret
    2. Middle finger on G string 2nd fret
    3. Ring finger on A string 3rd fret
    4. Pinky on C string 4th fret
    You need to bend your wrist outward, away from the neck for better pressure on the strings and not muting on the strings.

    You can tell that for the first three are similar so there is not much finger changing.
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much for your help everyone! I may need to start yoga lessons for my fingers!

    And if you want another variant of Twinkle-Twinkle to add to your repertoire, please don't miss Survivor Girl Ukulele Band's version - in a minor key with tabla drums!
    The girls singing takes my breath away.

    Scroll halfway down this page to the soundbite (not the video):

    Hi folks, I've been flat out renovating our house the last few months & sadly had little time for ukin' & UU, but today it rained & it was a bit dangerous up on the 6 meter scaffolding, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to record a quick video of this tune & add an alternative outro I'll try to find some time to tab it out if anyone is interested, just let me know

    Campbell, I can't make the video play.

    I'd love sent tabs you make. I've been obsessed with this song since the thread began.

    You've disabled comments? How can I rave about your stellar performance?
    And you forgot to mention the uke you're playing...

    Oh wow, you are so kind to share this, now I can study your fingers to see where I am making mistakes! And your alternative ending just takes the arrangement to another level! Thank you, I would also love the tabs!
