Brilliant!  Your ukulele is the perfect vehicle for a very nice rendition of George’s song. Great job Derek.

Thank you, RTZ. Great to hear from you. Hope all is well.

Thank you John :) I have several of the George Harrison cd's from his box of remasters of the albums a few years ago. It is on regular rotation on my old but still functioning ipod. I agree, small instruments are indeed fun.

Thanks Kale! 3 is a lucky number :)

Good question, Andries. I know he wrote Something in Clapton's English garden. I had never heard of this brand either but the box smells great still so I imagine they were decent cigars. Thanks Buddy!

Thank you, Doug. This is the first tenor I have made, all the others have been concerts. I am liking the longer fingerboard!

Nice sounding Uke and song Derek

I forgot that song until you got through a line.   Sounding dreamy good, George Harrison good.  Uke rings out nice.   Vocals are just great.   

Little instruments are comfy and fun.
