Another cover song from the workshop on a Sunday morning. I woke up with this song in my head and decided to cover it. I translated it from 6 to 3 string and it holds together pretty well. In retrospect, I wish I would've practiced it a bit longer because I probably would've done it in a higher register. Oh well.

Thanks Jim, Derek and Myron. Mr Simon is a heck of a songwriter. That's for sure. Thanks for the compliment Jim, but I'm definite over 30.

Great tune for today  while we are covered in ice .

Great job K.  Your lower register is fine.   I  just finished  my tenor uke and this is a good song for ukeles due to the many chord changes.  Thanks for sharing!

Wow. A lot of quick comments on this one. Glad you guys liked it. Thanks Danny Boy, Robert, Uncle, Denbo, Dave, & AGP. And I caught that irony AGP. ;-)

Great song to wake up with in your head Poorness, I think it would sound fine in any register you choose, a famous man once said "Play It Like You Hear It"  :-)
