Sheet music links
Feb 8th, 2002 at 8:38am
 
Hey Uke aficionados,

We had the beginings of a "music resource" section going on our previous messageboard.

Just a section where people could post links to sheet music or ask others if they knew where to get a particular song.

Seems like a natural thing to have on any Ukulele site, so here are a few to start us out:

*Please post any of your favorites here

yo out there...now if I can do it     anybody can so heres a first from an all thumbs beginner:

try dis cool Jazzlike Progression! Sorry no got tablature or chord fingering chart but pull out yer chord reference books and check this out!

In the Key of G

try dis:  start wid Gmaj.  4 beats  then Emin7 4 beats then Amin7 4 beats and end up with D7...ok  thats my one measure wonder good for at least 10 seconds...but if you play sequence in other positions...the measure stretched to 30 seconds...throw in some arpeggios and add another 30....this could keep you mildly entertained.

ok  nother measure...next sequence:

start with Bmin7   go to  E7   then Amin7 and back home to a D7...we is winging   hola   another 10 seconds.

Figured can learn  at least 6 chords in these 2 measures and if we memorize different chord positions..3 per chord as at least 18 new sounds we can string together....yup    not a musician....but  am  easily amused...check it out and let me know how its working out...figured this way..after pau a new uke at least when I'm tuning  I know a bit more than my dog has fleas.....laters ukeman

been fooling around with another progression...

goes like this in the Key of F

f  for 4 beats     dm  for 4 mo  Bb6 for 4 mo  then C7

sounding a bit familiar?

its a I  ... VI ....IV ....V  progression  and all yer oldies but goodies kinda use this progression or variations of it.

can use any key   jes keep the progression going in order then change em around but the chords are all nice

Hey y'all,

Just thought I'd let y'all know that a new Ukulele Masters book by Herb Ohta (Ohta-san) is out.  Its  by the same guy that put the Lyle Ritz book out last year (Jumpin' Jim Beloff).  So similar to that book, it comes with the chord book and a CD of most of the songs in the book.  Got mine at Costco in Waipio for $15.99.  Regular price on book is $24.95 so guess I saved a skosh.  Grin  Anyways, will be trying it out.  Just thought I'd let you know.

Keep yer strings tight and fingers loose,

Later,
GH

Its a real nice and cheap book/C.D. unit..Like a 16.00 dollar lesson from Ohta san...that lasts for hours,,,,,days.....weeks   what evers. Working on a song this week and its cool to have the C.D. so can listen to how should sound....but book is really well done..Now alls I need is someone to come out with the same kind book/ ...C.D.    ....but gentlemen  hows about some Elton John...Cat Stevens...Jon Sebastion...some James Taylor...Roberta Flack...like dat....what  missed our generation or what...Think later  bruddah Jake will have Cream , Hendrix and Clapton down....but hows about some mellow stuff........laters  ukeman

wow....a special report:      that Ohta San songbook is really righteous....started learning Georgia on My Mind...Aint no Ray Charles  ..but the chording and Melody is really pretty and ain't that hard in the key of F...Too bad he never record this song on his accompanying C.D.  Anyhow its a real nice one along with  the oldie...When I Fall In Love...  Ok new Goal is to learn these two songs and memorize em...hey Grasshopper...you got the book too...what say a duet...I mean ya got stage experience and den.......laters   ukeman

Yup, Got it!!!  Move over Jake!!!  hehehe.  Wink  Yeah right, I had the back of the stage experience.  8)  But will try those out, if'n I can figure out how's them songs go.  Think I kinda heard Georgia before but the other one? I aint that old!!!  Grin  Will see if I can remember how to read them notes in those lines.  Been a while for that too.  But thinks me 9 year old daughter can play um on the piano for me.  Tell you what, I got the rhythm and you can take lead.  Keep a pluckin.

Later,

yo hoppah san......the old note reading aid.....spaces between the lines    F    A    C   E   

the lines themselves starting from the bottom:

E   very
G   ood
B    oy
D    oes
F     ine

Yeah   the reading part is one thing and finding the notes on the uke is another...but if ya look for the nearest note  in the chord area     ...most likely ass the one you going play......shit  am i that old ....Georgia On My Mind is a Classic  soulful tune.....and If I Fall In Love...wow youre right maybe Judy Garland or some ancient musical had this song in it....but must admit...I  do remember the melody.......of course the 2 songs i wen choose no stay on Ohta Sans sample C.D......oh by the way  drop by the shop I have  some pure Lambs wool that I picked up in the Big Island...try em  for da french polishing fad.....laters  ukeman

Yo Ukeman,

Just wanted to say again much mahalos for the wool.  Will definitely give it a whirl on the next go round.  Also, keep on practicing those songs and I'll get your backup.

Thanks again,
gh
