The Bucket – Kings of Leon

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.

This Ukulele – John Goodwin

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!

I’ll Tell Me Ma

Here is a fun old traditional Irish tune that can be played as gentle or as raucous as you like it.  And like all the best tunes it’s only got three chords.

You are probably familiar with it, but if you aren’t, here is Sinead O’Conner’s version:
