Here are a couple that have been in the book for a while but I never got around to posting.
The first one is a hazy summers classic from Belle and Sebastian
and just the thing for this hot weather when all you want to do is laze about
Here’s an old timey standard that uses only two chords. It’s an Appalachian fiddle and banjo tune that will sound just as great on any other collection of four stringed instruments. We hope you have fun playing around with this one.

If you can’t beat the heat, you sing about it. This song was originally composed as an aria for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. It has since become a jazz standard and is considered one of the covered songs in the history of recorded music! This version is in D minor.
In an attempt to appeal to the younger crowd we decided to work on a medley of teen pop songs that were popular nearly 20 years ago. We hope you appreciate the two-for-one value and sing the whole lot with feeling.

My aunty had a Statler Brothers cassette that she used to play in her car, I think it was the only one she had in that car… I certainly heard it a lot that summer I stayed with her, and grew to love the songs contained on its magnetic tape. This one was my favourite, and was their big crossover hit. You might remember it from Reservoir Dogs, now you can remember it from that time you played it on the uke…
THE ONLY ONES!!!
This is a favourite around our way. A great wry lyric and an instantly hummable tune.
Here’s a three chord blues classic by Leadbelly. It’s a great one to sing and stomp along to.
