Play George Formby style banjo uke

If you are a beginner, you should find this very useful. Learn how to get started in GF uke style by learning two basic techniques. First the split stroke, which is the foundation for most of the other GF style strokes, and secondly the thumb roll (or "triple"), which adds a bit of extra interest. Even though these are just two of the techniques, when used together, they can sound fantastic.

just wondering if you know where i can get the chords/tabs for I told my baby with my ukulele

Inpossible to follow unless I know the key. Is it C, or D, or some other key? Perhaps a good starting point to any teaching would be to pass on this basic information. Please do that?

Thanks for the vid. i got the chords and Key from Petey, thanks to him, too. I have made great strides today, for which I am grateful. Any other vids would be more than welcome, they are a necessity!

Excellent effort on your part. Much grinding parctice on mine. Is it possible to connect with you by email?
