Performers are welcome to play these pieces in any way the like, classical pima, with a plectrum, with a plectrum and fingers, or in any other way that leads to an engaging performance. Performers are also welcomed to try a campanella approach by playing repeated sections on a different part of the ukulele. Samantha Muir recommends trying this out in Good Times starting at bar 17 and in Skip Galore starting on the upbeat to bar 18.
