    Default Somewhere Over the Rainbow - low G

    I am told I can't call myself a ukulele player until I play this song.
    Hope you like it.

    Nice! Yeah, I learned this a long time ago, but I've forgotten it... Guess I can't call myself a "real" ukulele player until I relearn it... :P

    And here I thought that "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" was the required song to earn the "Real Ukulele Player" title! Learn something new every day.

    Beautifully played, as usual! I noticed some pretty difficult chord voicings in your arrangement as well. And those LFdMs really sing don't they?

    Thank you. Yes there are two chords that are quite challenging. It would be easier on a concert scale for sure but it would not sound as good. I tried it on the Clara. Just not enough depth and space for the slide.

    I was under “pressure” to make a video just so friends can’t tease me with the “what? You don’t play this song?”
    Thank you for watching and took the time to comment.

    Thank you but singing is not for me that’s why I need the uke do it for me.
    I was told I need to combine this song to
    What a wonderful world.

    Brenda, I thought you’ve been a real ukulele player for years... Now that you’re a real real player, you need to sing the song as Dave suggested, and combine it with What a Wonderful World... LOL
    A day without playing uke is a day not well lived.
