    i’m a relative new comer to the uke–playing for almost two years now–and was wondering if anyone has chords for cliff edwards (ukulele ike) songs? i’ve read up on the lyrics, watched the youtube clips, but don’t have the ear or musical talent to figure it out…any ideas for where I should turn? are there any books i can buy? thanks.

Got something to say?
