What I Do (2006)
(Donald Fagen)


Great song, but I'm not quite sure about the nature of some chords in the 
middle 8. If you've got any ideas for improvement here, please tell me.

Hello ukulele players! I originally submitted this as a guitar tab 
I now edited it a little and hope it works for ukulele, too. 
But I'm not sure whether the chords I suggest make sense for the ukulele. 
If you have any suggestions to make as to how to improve this tab, 
don't hesitate to send a message. Enjoy!
