Blue Gypsy Roses Falling

A while back I had mentioned that I wanted to learn Gypsy Ukulele in anticipation of my Kepasa Gypsy Rose. Well, as the delivery date of the Gypsy Rose kept getting pushed out, I ended forgetting what I had learned of the tune. So now that I have the Gypsy Rose, the best I could do at the moment as far as posting a video with it is Blue Roses Falling.

I probably did about 6 or 7 takes but kept screwing something up. This is probably the best take before I gave up. I think it does give you an idea of what the Gypsy Rose sounds like.

A very nice rendition. I'm keen to learn this song but can't find a published TAB. It's not in JS's tab book for Peace, Love etc as far as I can see. If you've a file to spare, I'd be grateful.

Surely a way forward is to find/mentor another uker up to duet with? Always easier suggested than done, of course. :( But you can achieve such wonderful things with duets. I hear uke pieces in my head all the time and realise that they need to be duets cos one uke can manage the complexity.

Thanks for sharing.
