  1. Ya ty so much Aldine and all the rest of the UU staff for all the time and effort you guys go through to make this happen.. Although I’d be lying if I said this was the only site I use to learn songs/technique, I will be completely honest and say you guys have the best selection as far as tutorials go, a lot of the others don’t do enough classic rock or older music for that matter.. People seem to forget how awesome and beautiful songs of music is.. It’s just like the songs playing on the radio at this moment in time will be thought of by most of the younger generation as old and outdated as soon as they get replaced by something new and catchy radio wise. I Mean there’s still some stations out there that play older music, but it’s always the same songs over and over I havent heard any clapton on the radio in a long time

  2. Mauururu roa,
    special aroha ( aloha) from Tahiti to Aldrine and friends and big love to you all.

  3. Be informed..!! This tutorial video cannot be viewed on iPhone. Try open it on Mac/PC…Thanks for this tutorial….

  4. wow thank you for my first lesson i better start at the beginning lesson aye although i am a quick learner and i can play this very good.awesome

  5. Aldrine you are a gentleman and a scholar. I’m not sure exactly why I keep hearing that but it’s definitely my favorite compliment to give haha keep it up πŸ™‚

  6. This is so awesome, you make these tutorials seem easier than anyone else i’ve seen and your kind enough to do so. Even i can play this now and i have only been learning to play the ukulele for 2 months, all because of this tutorial

  7. Awesome- the spooky thing is I’d been working on this myself since just before Christmas and it was vaguely reassuring to see this version turn up on Underground Uke:)

  8. Aldrine, you never cease to amaze me. You are the rare person who not only plays wonderfully but can teach. Thank you sooooo much. I may actually be able to play this song now.

  9. Aldrine–this is awesome. Thank you so much for all you do on this site. It really has helped me step up my game and be a better uke player. Your visual fret board is terrific too.
