    Late at night and I’ll have to think about ALICES RESTAURANT progression.

    I’ve got a buddy who always says he wants to learn 5 songs to play by heart. I keep trying to tell him......

    He does guitar too, but the above link should take you to his uke content.

    I've tried working on some of his tutorials, but I just can't get my thumb to keep the beat independently. It's one of those "pat your head and rub your tummy" kind of things. I'll keep working at it, but for now it seems impossible. Wonderful stuff tho! It looks deceptively simple when he does it.

    Wow. Thanks for this. I'm loving "DaddyStovePipe"
