Tiptoe Through the Tulips

This is the first song many people think of when you mention the ukulele. It was popularized by Tiny Tim back in the 1960s (I’m including a video of him performing it below). There’s never been anybody quite like Tiny Tim, before or since. I always liked him because he was so unusual, but he was a pretty terrible uke player. I’m also including a video of Nick Lucas playing it on guitar. Nick was a masterful guitarist and was the first one to popularize the song back in the 1920s.

As I usually do, I played the song like I wanted to play it and didn’t try to copy Tiny Tim or Nick Lucas.
