Hi, I found a book that has the chords.  It's called "The Daily Ukulele" compiled by Liz and Jim Beloff.  Published by Hal.Leonard and Flea Market Music, Inc.  fleamarketmusic.com

I found the book in a local music shop.  It's a great book and has 365 tunes with chords and diagrams.  smile

I'm still working on B chords, but, since I am a stubborn son of a gun.  I'll keep working at it!

Indeed.  A fresh perspective is always welcome.   We're all in this together, for the love of music and the love of playing!!

Hi Ozy. I'm self taught myself. Been at it since Woodstock. Started on keyboards first. Helps to figure out chords. Keep strumin' away. Practice your chord changes. As we go through life, things do change and we begin to try other music. When we come back to our beginnings, it all starts to come together. The main thing is to enjoy yourself and have fun.
Many of my family and friends play. When we get together it's all a blast. Sounds pretty good most times. Sometimes we even sing in key. Everyone learns from each other. We have to keep the music alive for the young folk. The more they are around it the more they get into it. Currently teaching my grandoughter piano and my grandson guitar. They love it.
There are so many free lessons on youtube. Wish they had them when I started 40 years ago. I've aquired many guitars through the years. My favorites are the acoustic/electric. Different guitars for different moods. Whatever your preferences are, go at it and have fun.

Quoted for truth!!  smile

Tough one now is the F6. Dmaj7 is a blast!

And if you want to play a B, get a capo on the 2nd fret and play an A shape.

Thanks.

That wasgood I did not know he was such a good player and he has agood voice,I can only remeber one song by him and that was spiders and snakes.

That wasn't Jim Stafford, this is a cajun musician who did a video on his back porch.  Check out the version on Youtube.   But, I saw Jim Stafford play and he is an awesome guitar player as well.

Here's a cool version of Swamp Witch by Jim Stafford.  I should add that this is not Jim Stafford btw.  Check out the video's on youtube.

I have been experimenting with using finger barring to simplify my chord changes on the Uke.   I've got the basics down, so now I just play and try different things and see what works.

My first time was playing chords as backup for my daughters first recital.  My first time singing was playing a tune I wrote for my teacher.  I am always nervous doing things in front of people.  So I just focused on what I was doing and not letting minor flubs knock me off the pace.

Hi oz I looked at all the music he has here( he has a huge amount) but no luck,might try around the web some or maybe someone here will know where to get it.

Yeah, I looked at what was here and even checked out some books I had.  Wasn't sure if it was an old spiritual or something he wrote.  Somebody may pop up with the answer.
