This type of playing on the uke is very much like Scruggs style, but without a 5th string. Sometimes it's useful to play banjo like that too - Don Reno might agree.

One of my faves to pick on the guitar; never tried it on the uke. I like your chord voicings in the chorus. Nicely done Laurence.

IF and WHEN I am proclaimed Emperor of Earth, anybody who claims that the uke is just a plunkyplunk toy, will be REQUIRED by LAW to watch that video.

"I'll remember Widnes" "Springtime in Widnes" - I believe those song titles are still up for grabs!

You can get a Widnes the easy way.
Lay down for an afternoon nap, and a pair of them will ring your doorbell. wink
