Don't Get Around Much Anymore

Don't Get Around Much Anymore is a jazz standard with music by Duke Ellington and lyrics by Bob Russell. The tune was originally titled "Never No Lament" and was first recorded by Ellington in 1940 as a big band instrumental. Russell's lyrics and the new title were added in 1942.

( from Howlin' Hobbit ) The chord solo I based mine off of is Curt Sheller's version. I hope he does more like it as I‘ve found the ukulele tabs usually fall either in the "too simple to bother with" or "too difficult for normal humans" camps. The intermediate level (of) this one falls in is just right (for me, at least)... link)

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the best — Glen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
