‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran for Ukulele – fingerpicking AND strumming

I love this song – the melody is just beautiful.
I wanted to play it on the ukulele and started searching for good arrangements.
Ran across this tutorial video and love it – a little fingerpicking and a little strumming – neither too hard.
The hard part is that you need a capo on the 1st fret – they cost about $15 for a good one.

Amahi begins Ukulele Tips of the Week on Facebook

If you don’t know Amahi ukuleles, please give me the pleasure to introduce you. Amahi has been making fine violins for years under the name Amati (with a ‘t’). They recently started making intentionally inexpensive ukuleles and I believe that they are a great contender! They now have a broad range of ukes from $50ish student ukuleles which are similar to Makala to $500ish models.  I really like the quality of their intermediates ($150-$300ish). They also offer more expensive brands under separate brand names. They are located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Visit their Website and ‘like’ them on Facebook to learn more about them.
