if you want to try plucking which generally sounds way prettier pluck the two middle strings then the top one then the bottom and do this with the chords for the whole song. it sounds beautiful

On the two last edelweiss in the song instead of the chord progression G D G C, I do G Dm C Cm and it sounds really good!

I would recommend plucking the C string then E then G then A for the entire song

On the 2nd edelweiss instead of a g try an e minor! It works pretty well for me but the g works too :)

It sounds better with G in my opinion :)

Here is also another tip, on “blossom of snow may you bloom and grow” I added a C7 on the “snow”

I like to do G7 on “grow” in that same line.

I would actually recommend a F7 on grow in that line. It sounds a lot better.

This is awesome! I taught myself ukulele on the computer, and I have a hard time changing the chords, but it sounds amazing!!
