Bring Your What???

Your Adz, that is.  So I have no idea what Adz means and I'm too lazy to google it, but I managed to learn a reasonable facsimile of this song from Jake Shimabukuro's "Peace Love Ukulele" album a few months ago.  The video was recorded a couple of months ago, but I haven't had time (read: lazy) to post it until now.  I'm pretty sure I played the main riff incorrectly, but I haven't tried to learn the correct way.  In fact, I don't think I can play this song all the way through right now because I haven't played it at all lately.  Maybe I should try to re-learn it at a later date.  Perhaps wait until Jake's "Peace Love Ukulele" tab book is released! (I just learned about this tab book today.  Too bad it won't have Blue Roses Falling in it.  I get many messages via Youtube asking for Blue Roses Falling for some reason)

Anyway, here's the video.  I think I've reached my ceiling as an ukulele player as I don't feel like I've improved in the last year or so.  That's OK though.  Considering I'm playing stuff now that I never dreamed that I would be able to play when I started playing the ukulele, I'm happy just being a hack!
