Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is based on the guitar tab submitted by onefinebob.
Like all things uke, this can be played on your guitar by transposing down
5 semitones and cutting off the top two strings of your guitar with wire cutters.

F/A is really just an alternative F major on the uke. onefinebob's version also
uses Bb/F, but that doesn't translate to anything beyond Bb major.

Bbadd9 is not part of the original, but strumming it will give your fingers
time to line up for the fingerpicking parts, and it gives a natural transition
to the fingerpicking. It doesn't sound out of place to my ears. You'll see what
I mean when you play it, but if you hate it don't do it.

The intro is a pain to get right on the uke because of the weird on/off of the
first fret of the E string. Do it a million times and it will start to click.
It's not perfect, but I think it's as good as you can get with a uke.
