Something for Ukulele

What follows is my personal arrangement of George Harrison's song "Something" for ukulele. The foundation for this arrangement is the one posted at Ukulele Boogaloo. I've made several adjustments and corrections to that version over the past few months and thought I should share my take on this classic song. The tabs for the solo was taken from Brook Adams' website.

Note: I corrected a minor typo in the main riff. Thanks to Howlin' Hobbit for spotting it for me!

I'm just starting to go through this and that intro riff should be:

Am7..................C
--0---3---0--1--2----3--
--0------------------0--
--0------------------0--
--0------------------0--

(Hope the spacing comes out right.)

HH- You're right. I left a note out (I play better than I type, I promise!!), but I'm pretty sure there are two As (in the Am7 and then a single A note) at the beginning:

Am7......................C
--0---0---3---0--1--2----3--
--0----------------------0--
--0----------------------0--
--0----------------------0--
