  1. Thanks guys; great tutorial, liked the strum along, to bad U have to sweat it out in the heat,only 2′ here rite now, not much snow. Ha! Ha!

  2. Thanks for this! Just learned the hula for this and now I have the ukulele version in my pocket too! How can you change the key for this song?.G is too low for me (female) to sing along to.

    1. Dear Rosalinda, the most simple way to help U is to buy a capo(daster) which allows U to play this song with actually the same chord shapes in positions higher than in G.
