Here is a classic song with attitude and a really fun ‘run’ to do up the fretboard. Acknowledgements to Richard G for the song sheet.
Here is a wonderful slow burning tune from Melbourne’s Lower Plenty.
Heres a great easy standard from the always terrific Hank Williams that only has 3 or 4 chords.
Get your dawg to howl along with you to capture the forsaken vibe.
Here is a catchy pop tune that had ought to sound pretty fab with some ukulelar-powered energy. It has three chords – D, A and G. We can give it a run-through at the next meetup on Thurs.
Several members of 4 Strings will be at Thursday night’s trivia event. Two of them are quiz masters on the night! Consequently there will be no uke meetup this week. We warmly invite people to come have a different kind of enjoyable time and support community radio Main FM instead. More ukulele hijinks next Thursday 25th at the Cri.
We ran through this very quickly last night and will probably look at it a bit more next week. It is I looked all over town by the Magnetic Fields (a band with a vast catalogue of superb tunes for ukulele bands to cover!)
Here is a handy song to have up your sleeve when people enquire about your instrument. It also adds to our growing collection of songs not only accompanied by the ukulele but also about it.
This song was performed by the character Big Z, who is voice-acted by Jeff Bridges, in the 2007 film Surf’s Up.
Learn the song then wait in ambush for someone to ask about your uke!
Here is the title song from the 1970 western Compañeros, directed by Sergio Corbucci. In the recording below it is sung by I Cantanti Moderni.
The iconic main theme from Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 spaghetti western Django. A fantastic film and a track that can really sing arranged for an ensemble of uke players.
