Ukulele's are for babies, you should go and buy a guitar like John, Paul, and George did, you can get one real cheap if you search around.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Yeah, that's why George said he didn't like anyone who didn't love a uke, and carried ukes with him everywhere - to play, and to give to those he loved...

Are you suggesting George was a baby, @HMBeatlesfan?

Get thyself out to buy a uke! Wonderful instrument, especially looking like...

...as mine does.

As George said...

Everybody should have and play a 'UKE'...

Yep, George Harrison is a baby.

You should see him in fanfiction.

Sure, George liked his ukulele, but he didn't play one on a single Beatles recording instead opting for a guitar, playing such great guitar lines such as the main riff for Day Tripper or the solo for Something. Also, I have played with ukulele's, but I've been playing guitar forever and have to retune my ukes to E standard (I've also done Eb standard, D standard, Drop D, and Open G with a uke) just to play them and I also prefer having a bigger guitar with 6 strings, personally I am a Fender Strat guy.

Maybe you should try posting more.

It may not be canon, @HMBeatlesfan, though many argue it should be, but who plays the uke on Free As A Bird?

I do believe that's Georgie.

He wasn't a great uke fan when the Boys were together, became one in the late '70s/early '80s.

So, of the Beatles songs recorded after George really got into the uke, 50% involved him playing a uke...

It's George. The 'FAAB' video director person regretted not having George play it in the video as he didn't realise until after the matter. There is a quote floating out there in the land of internet about it.

Waiting On The Sun - Sixpence None The Richer 

I grew up with Divine Discontent, so there's sentimental value. Never thought of them as Christian, though apparently they are a 'Christian rock band'.

He said so in the Special Features on the Anthology DVD.

Sorry. Penny Lane is by that other band who ripped off The Rutles. What was their name....? THE MONKEES!

I also happen to be a Weird Al fan! My favorites are Trigger Happy and Dog Eat Dog.
