    I love the style of playing in these tutorials! Can you also do a tutorial on the West World theme songs? It’s beautiful and amazing. Thank you!

    So, I was thinking the same thing a while ago, and a nice man named Campbell created these tabs for me.

    However, there are 2 issues with them.

    1. The uke does not have enough tonal range to do this properly, even with a low G, so there are a few bits that sound odd. I’m thinking specifically of the second measure.

    2. The actual melody gets really lost in all the harmonies.

    I figured out that I can solve both issues by adapting the tab for my guitarlele and getting my wife to play the melody line on her uke, but I kind of lost impetus half-way through doing this. It’s one of those things that I’ll return to one day.

    In the mean time, I hope the tab is helpful.

    OK since I know you hate cliche songs here’s one that isn’t so much. (And if it is, cliche be darned!!)

    Goodbye Blue Sky – Pink Floyd

    A fingerstyle arrangement for low G would be amazing and uke-able. WE (I, lol) NEED a good Floyd song…. Please, please, please?

    (See? Pretty. And doesn’t sound too hard.)

    Instead of saying goodbye to Blue Sky let’s say Hello, Mr. Blue Sky. Always a pick-me-up whenever I hear it. When I get really good at strumming, I might give this a try and I’ll change the lyric to “Hey there, Mr. Drew” ha

    Ricky- NO! NOT instead of! 😱 I’m learning so many obscure songs I don’t know already! And The Wall is as classic as any Beatles song! Don’t be hating on my request because it’s powerful. 😂 (Or I’ll change Dream back to Spanish on you! LOL!)

    Love The Wall. Love Another Brick in the Wall. My last Pink Floyd album was on 8 track? If you change Dream back to Espanol then I’ll make lemonade from lemons and I’ll add Castanets to my part. LOL……nobody knows what we’re talking about.

    How about Tranz by The Gorillaz, or Big Iron by Marty Robins?

    Prendre Un Enfant by Yves Duteil is one of my mom’s favourite songs. I would love to learn a fingerstyle version and play it for her on Mother’s Day next year (since it’s a song about caring for your children). I think it would sound great on the ukulele, though it would likely need to be abbreviated as it’s a bit long and repetitive.

    I really like the James Bond Theme posted. Definitely need my Cheerio’s to do that speed.

    I am also very interested in learning the Main Movie Theme for-
    THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS and/or the song THE KISS from the movie. Hopefully, at sometime they will be featured like the James Bond Theme.

    I don’t know if someone has already mentioned this:
    I would love to have an arrangement of any studio ghibli song (Joe Hisaishi) e. g. The Name of Life or Always With Me from Spirited Away, The Merry Go Round of Life from Howls Moving Castle! All of them are so beautiful.

    Another video game music arrangement would be super cool too! Koji Kondo is my favorite artist from this genre.

    For video game soundtracks, how about the main theme from Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts?

    Fun suggestions guys.

    I’d like to formally request Star Trek, The Next Generation version. I’m having more fun than I could have imagined with star wars and star trek is the only logical next step.

    Live long and prosper.
