one of the things i wanted for our orchestra when it started was to do songs we all know and love that you might not a) expect to hear on a ukulele or b) have the guts to perform if it was just yourself on say a guitar or playing the piano. but there are so many great songs in the world – and some of the ones we have picked to work on as a group just make me smile from ear to ear as soon as we start playing them. i hope it has the same effect for people listening too!
of course we have been looking at our christmas songs over the past couple of weeks so thought i would just do the shortcuts to the music here so if you missed the session you can catch up.
CHRISTMAS SONGS (4 in total):
these are not my arrangements Ukulele Christmas Song Book but in here you will find the chords and lyrics for LAST CHRISTMAS and I WISH IT COULD BE CHRISTMAS EVERYDAY
we also looked at the songs for Teal Beck Residential Home (Monday 10th December – meet at woolpack 6pm or teal beck 6.30pm)
