    i've finally chunked! For the longest time it never worked out for me, but last night I got it down! The riff portion is a breeze too!

    Aldrine thanks!

    tabbed here for everyone (fine really just my future reference!)

    Code:
    A|-----^-------------^-----------^----------2--3--5/7--5--
    E|-----5--3--3H5-----5--3--------5--3--3H5--3--5--7/8--7--
    C|--2-------------2--------4--2---------------------------
    G|--------------------------------------------------------
    
    ^
    5 = bend on the 5 and appropriate string.
    
    / = slide
    
    H = hammer

    Aldrine! Man! I love your videos! This is definitely my favorite one! I found this song easy to learn, play and sing. Plus it is funny as hell at the end. Thanks a bunch for that!

    I also like the strumming pattern symbols -- it was easy as pie to follow up.

    Aloha!

    Superb lesson Aldrine and co.! The "outtakes" had me rolling with laughter!

    Omega props.

    Thanks for the video Aldrine, tried to figure this one out from youtube videos; but only wit your video and lyrics from chordie.com I can now actually play the song! My picking part still needs practice but I'm getting there.

    Oh yeah also forgot to mention I can now do hammer ons and bend strings due to your vid. Thanks UU!

    Also pretty cool to see that Koa Pili Koko get some more action. I kind of like the "dry" sound it has, like there's a little bit of a rough edge. Perhaps it's just the video...?

    Anyway... any more impressions about the KPK tenor? It looks like a good option in that price range.

    A suggestion to complete these video lessons is to show Aldrine play the song once everything has been laid out. As a beginner I can say that that addition to the videos would help out a lot us beginners. Rather than just bits and pieces of the song throughout the video.
    For example, I got this song down (the chords, picking and singing) but when i put all together I can get a little lost here and there (tempo and sync) and if there was the song played out from start to end would pull all the strings together. There's no reference better than the man himself, Aldrine, playing the entire song. It's different when you watch Eric Clapton on YouTube playing electric guitar and you try to follow up with your uke.
    In my case, once I get the chords down, then the strumming and finally the lyrics I find it hard to put it at flow as well as the video show us. I then try to scan thru the parts where Aldrine is playing the song so I can observe him to tie all together.

    That's how I feel and maybe I'm asking for too much. It's just a suggestion.

    Aloha.

    I agree. It is a great lesson, but could use a section where all the pieces are put together. Thanks so much you guys and keep it up.

    Awesome lesson, thank you Aldrine! Even for a beginner like me (i've only been playing for 5 weeks) it was fairly easy to learn.
    Keep em coming! Hail UU!
