Ukulele Whiteboard Request – Somewhere Over the Rainbow/ What a Wonderful World (Israel Kamakawiwo’ole)
Thank you again, Aldrine! Your version is the best and most complete I’ve found of this lovely song.
For a low-G, can what do you think about using the 4th string G as a base note instead of the C? It seems to work ok.
Ive been looking for that version. so I am so happy you guys did it justice. Thanks.
one question. when you go to pluck the c string with your thumb it looks like you are also plucking the a string with you index finger. What’s that about?
Aloha, I’m looking for a song by Sammy Johnson called “all you have to do is say I love you”
I sure would like you guys to teach that one.
Thanks in advance, Ulu
Great lesson. Except I don’t understand how you chunk?
This VIDEO should help.

Thanks Aldrine for doing this one! It was my Whiteboard request!! I was able to play this in Oahu for my sister in law’s vow renewals and it was beautiful. I even upgraded to a solid Koa Hawaiian ukulele so now I’m sounding better too.
Wow that’s awesome! We are so happy that you could make your sister in law’s day even more special, and congrats on the ukulele upgrade. Keep strummin’ and thank you for helping us to spread ukulele joy!
