A melody and chord arrangement of the [Frank Foster](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Foster_(musician) song for ukulele in G Tuning with a low "D" tuning "D G B E".

Arrangement is also suitable for guitar and baritone ukulele.

“Shiny Stockings” has two sets of lyrics, by both Ella Fitzgerald and Jon Hendricks. Fitgerald recorded the tune with her lyrics in July of 1963 on Ella and Basie: On the Sunny Side of the Street. Hendricks recorded his lyrics in January 1963 on Recorded in Person at the Trident. Earlier recordings may exist. The ASCAP ACE database lists Foster as the writer for the instrumental version and both Foster and Fitzgerald for the vocal version. Sarah Vaughan recorded Fitzgerald’s lyrics in 1964 on Viva Vaughan.

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
