    Thanks so much, Tom ... you've been a great host! (And I have learnt a lot about Jeff Lynne.)

    I recently started to learn this song but it sounds a bit different from what I'm hearing in the video. Could I ask what chords you are using?

    Yes sir, On baritone, I'm playing D then adding my pinky on fret 3 of the E string, then taking it off and going to A. I am not using a capo as Tom Petty does. So I'm actually playing it in D. Some charts show it going From D to G to D to A. By adding the pinky i'm hitting the G, kind of

    When you add your pinky to third fret, your actually playing a Dsus4 chord. Sus2 & sus4 chords are useful for adding colour to an accompaniment.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Thank you! I had been playing D/G/D/A but D/G/Dsus4/A works well too. I played it both ways back to back trying to decide which sounds better. The Dsus4 adds kind of a wistful element which I like and the G adds a higher end I like. I think I'll play around with it and maybe use both!

    I can't do this song much justice because I can't leap an octave when singing the chorus which adds a lot more dynamic and interest. Petty seemed to do it effortlessly but he apparently had a 4 octave range according to a book I just read. Singing the chorus in the same octave makes it kind of dull.
