    Great app – great work – thanks for this. I am a beginner at this but I play guitar so it may come easier than others. Your video guides are as easy as it gets. I am up and playing as if I know what I am doing right along with you. I would love to put in a request for a song – Pharell’s Happy by Walk off the earth (they do this specifically for Uke – which is cool in itself. If you don’t know their version – here is the video link:
