Ukulele U2 Ukulele meets U2 for placement

Sounds U2ish enough to me.
I don't know whether or not you had time constraints on the song, but at around the 0:57 mark I would have like to have heard a variation on the theme that you repeated beforehand.
Some differentiation in chord and/or melody would have been nice to my ears and emotions at that point.
But it is well performed and the mix is nice and clean.
Good luck with it.

I haven't had much listening time, but I knew this was a "gots to" for me. I liked it. Unlike, for example the recent Eddie Vedder "Ukulele Songs" album, you managed to keep the ukelele's character present. One thing you might consider, especially if you want an add'l section or mevemnt. Is to maybe let the uke move to the forground and then give it "Edge" processing. If you've heard Greg Hawkes' "Beatles Uke" album, uke-processing can be really cool and differentiate a section.
Good luck and keep up the good work! Aloha - Ron

I can hear a U2 vibe going on with this alright (been listening to The Joshua Tree lots recently).
If think that if you hammer on the guitar chord to Dsus4 from D the second time rather than from Dsus4 to D again that would remind me even more of 'I still haven't found what I'm looking For'....also maybe a droney sort of fog horn guitar playing power chords.

Nice song Zeek, I didn't want it to end, and dig the U2 similarities.
Too short in my opinion, and I would LOVE to hear it with some vocals!
