    That is uncanny! I saw the name of this thread and came here to post and the first reply is almost word for word what I was going to say!

    Such a great sing-a-long. People can't help themselves from joining in.

    Beirut's "Nantes" is a current favorite with our HS uke club:

    Dm
    C
    F

    If you have more advanced players they can work in a reggae strum, or they can lead each chord with a melody note (D, E, and F work well).

    Cheers on a cool thread.
