    Remember stairway to heaven is a great song and it's impressive to be able to play through it. That is one of it's main draws and why so many players want to learn to play it well.
    I can see it being bodysurfing for sure. My wife still asks me to play it from time to time but I just can't bring myself to do it anymore. I need a multiple year hiatus from hearing or playing that song, haha

    If we all work together, we can make it the Bobs Burgers theme.

    Tip Toe Through The Tulips Al Dublin & Joe Burke 1929

    Intro: C / A / |D7 / G7 / |

    [C] Tip toe to the [G7] window
    By the [C] window,[C7] that is [F] where I'll [Fm] be
    Come [C] tiptoe [A] through the [Dm] tulips [G7] with [C] me [A][D7][G7]

    Oh, [C] tiptoe from the [G7] garden
    By the [C] garden [C7] of the [F] willow [Fm] tree
    Come and [C] tiptoe [A] through the [Dm] tulips [G7] with [C] me [F][C][C7]

    Knee [F] deep in [Em] flowers we'll [A7] stray
    We'll [Em] keep the [D7] showers a[G7]way

    And if I [C] kiss you in the [G7] garden,
    In the [C] moonlight [C7] will you [F] pardon [Fm] me?
    And [C] tiptoe [A] through the [Dm] tulips [G7] with [C] me [A][D7][G7]


    Try this straight, without camping it up with falsetto and vibrato.
    (Sorry, I must've been thinking in guitar mode, since I put a C where the F should be in the bridge. It's fixed now.)
    There must be a better chord for the second Em in the bridge.

    That's actually only the chorus of the song. The song actually has two verses that, as is the case with many songs from that era (for example, Take Me Out To the Ball Game" as well as "God Bless America" and many other Irving Berlin songs), nobody plays anymore. Here's a link to a video of the song's debut in the 1929 film "Golddiggers of Broadway."

    I don't think ukers are self-conscious the same way insecure youth learning guitar are. The funny part about the forbidden riff thing is just that the guitar center workers are so tired of Eruption that they would hate it even if it was actually Eddie sitting over there playing it. It's just another way for people to act superior.

    The Boomtown Rats "I Don't like Mondays" because someone once told me it could never be played on a ukulele.

    Ukulele players seem self conscious by nature.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.
