  1. Thanks again Matt. I just downloaded the Power Tabs software and this will be the perfect riff to practice on it.

  2. Matt,

    I look forward to your webcam session every week.

    I actually owned the original 45 record of Purple in 1967 at the age of 10. My dad would come in my room and yell at me to turn the record player down. Fond memories! πŸ™‚

    I will add this as my 2nd Ukulele rock riff. The one I currently know is AC/DC Back in Black.
