    Thanks, I just realized the way I actually play it is to go back to the F after the 5450 C6, i.e.,

    F(2010) A7#5(0110) Dm(2210) Adim?(2320)-(2323) (Bb6maj7?)3230 (C6)5450 F (2010) C7sus4(3533) C7#5(3443)

    But, hey, whatever works .

    How's this: GCEA Tuning-- strum each chord twice

    Am7 (0000) Bbdim (0101) G7 (0212) G (0232) Am7 (0000) Bbdim (0101) G7 (0212) G (0232)

    C (0003) E7 (1202) A (2100) A (2100) D7 (2020) G7 (0212) C (0003) G7 (0212) C (0003)

    Played fast and punchy, I can almost fool people into thinking that I know what I'm doing.


    And I sat here, with drool leaking from the corner of my mouth, thinking, "What the heck are they talking about?????"

    I just play a 12 bar blues in A with a turnaround, something tin pan alley-ish, and something from John Prine, then usually say something like, "Yeah, you're right - I can't play this thing".

    I was sitting in O'Hare Airport on May 31, wearing an Aloha Shirt, and playing the Fluke while awaiting my flight to Albany, and a couple of folks asked if I had been to Hawai'i. When I told them no, not recently, I'd just come from Madison, Wisconsin, I could swear I heard someone say "Sure don't sound like cheese..."

    I still don't know if that was a compliment or not.

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    I like the chord progression: G, B, C, Cm. This is the chord progression to Creep by Radiohead, which is one of the only songs I can sing decently I think haha. But my favorite song to jam on the uke? Well that's a different story lol!
