Bandito Tyler

Since I got the Kamaka tenor from Maui a few weeks ago, I've been jonesin' to post a video playing Aldrine Guerrero's Bandito Tyler on it. After all, the Kamaka HF-3 is pretty much the "Aldrine Guerroro signature model" ukulele right? :p

I learned this song, as pretty much every ukulele song I've learned, from Dominator's tabs. At first glance, it seemed like a very difficult song to learn. But if you get into it and get a good feel for the strumming rhythm for it, it's not all that difficult. Yes, there are parts that aren't that easy, as you will see mistakes a-plenty from my video, but I would say it's fairly accessible for the intermediate ukulele player. Check it out and give it a shot.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm a long ways from being great at playing the ukulele, but it's sure fun to play it. Trust me, you'll be a lot better than you think you could be in no time if you just keep at it.
Keep strumming!
