    Great job, John! This is a standard in our uke jam repertoire. We have to flatten it out a bit to make it work for an ensemble. I really like the way you highlighted the old-timey aspects of it.

    Hi, thanks so much for listening. What do you mean by "flatten it out"?

    Nice job! I introduced this song to my jam group, which is generally reluctant with "new" (read not 50s-60s) but it caught on and gets requested every week.

    Fantastic, John! This is the best of yours so far!

    Thanks Joseph. Funny, sometimes the ones you feel least confident about posting are the most well received.
