Amazing performance by Nat King Cole as vocalist and also pianist. Most people forget he was first of all a jazz pianist.

This is such a delightful piece to play on the Ukulele . . . It’s got an exquisitely clever chord progression that keeps your fingers moving right along. . . Below you will see the opening few bars . . . Top line is standard Treble clef notation, while the bottom stave is formatted in Ukulele tablature. . . The top line represents the FIRST string . . . which is the one closest to your knee. . . then you have the remaining three strings. . .

Paper 1

The first beat is just a “placer” note to establish the opening of the song. . . The actually melody begins on the the dotted 8th note following the F Chord. . . This song is chock full of wonderful dim7, m7 etc. . . JAZZ chords. . . .Enjoy!

Below is another short excerpt from the song . . .

Paper 2

Measure 17 begins the BRIDGE of the song. . . Notice all of the zeros in measure 19 . . . These are always great since that means no fingers on placed on those strings. . . Making measure 19 a simple, easy measure of music. . .
