I've got mine and I love it. I'm particularly impressed by the harmonies. You can tell they have spent many hours singing together. I love how Amanda's part gives Kim's beautiful clear melody a darker color.

I don't like it as much as I was hoping I would. Eh. It's still alright.

Hahaha it's hardly surprising that it's very Kim, seeing as she's the one who did a kickstarter for it and did all those emails and whatever else.

Now that I've listened to this, I'm disappointed that Kim and Amanda didn't acknowledge that this ukulele version, including the harmonies, was created by Kayla when she was teaching Kim how to play the ukulele in 2009.  Kayla and Kim played this song together at several gigs that summer.

Giving credit where it's due costs nothing, and no matter who the artist is, I get grumpy when it's skipped. (Admittedly much grumpier when the person who's contribution is being ignored is the gal I'm marrying, but everyone should get what they've earned.)
