Aloha all:
A new Hawaiian Songbook is hot off the press. It's called He Mele Aloha and is a collection of over 260 Hawaiian songs of which about 40 are classic hapa-haole numbers. The emphasis on this book is accurate Hawaiian lyrics and translations along with simple chordings and fingerings for each song.All chording is for the 'ukulele tuned to G C E A...how nice. This book is available through UGH member Kimo Hussey, an awesome 'ukulele player in his own right, and retails for 24.95   like about 9 cents per song....contact kimo at this address:
james.hussey@hickam.al.mil   or check out http://www.booklineshawaii.com/book/bmu/256404.html

Hi Asa & UkeMan -

First I want to thank you for all of the great info you have shared about building. Getting closer!. Got the universal bender finished and the forms for the cutaway tenor. Sweet!

On to music...UkeMan, I've got to be as old as you judging from the songs you dig. I have been having a terrific time playing chops on the Eagles "Hotel California". You're going to dig it.

Intro :     Am-E7-G-D-F-C-Dm-E7      /    Am-E7-G-D-F-C-Dm-E7

Verse 1   
Am                                          E7
On a dark desert highway,       cool wind in my hair,
G                                D
warm smell of colitas rising up through the air.
F                                          C
Up ahead in the distance,      I saw a shimmering light,
Dm
my head grew heavy and my sight grew dim,
E7
I had to stay for the night.

Verse  2 
Am                                                   E7
There she stood in the doorway,      I heard the mission bell,
G                     
and I was thinking to myself
                           D
this could be heaven or this could be hell
F                                          
then she lit up a candle,      and she showed me the way,
Dm                                                          E7
there were voices down the corridor,       I thought I heard them say.

Chorus
F                                   C                Dm
“Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place,
         Am
        Such a lovely face.
F                                         C                 Dm
Plenty of room at the Hotel California,   any time of year
        E7
       You can find it here.“

Verse 3
Am                                             E7
Her mind is Tiffany twisted,      she got the Mercedes Benz,
G                                                         D
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys ,    that she calls friends.
F                                                    C
How they dance in the courtyard- sweet summer sweat,
Dm                                           E7
Some dance to remember,       some dance to forget…..

Verse 4
Am                                           E7
So I called up the captain,       “Please bring me some wine!“
G                                                                D
(He said,) “We haven’t had this spirit here since nineteen sixty-nine.“ …
F                                                              C
And still those voices are calling from fa-arr away,
Dm                                                               E7
wake you up in the middle of the night,        just to hear them say.

Chorus
F                                   C                   Dm
“Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place,
         Am
        Such a lovely face.
F                           C                         Dm
Living it up at the Hotel California,   what a nice surprise
        E7
       When you’re out of lies. (Leave your alibias)


Verse 5
Am                                  E7
Mirrors on the ceiling,      they drink pink champagne on ice.
G                                                    D
“We are all just prisoners here      of our own device.“
F                                             C
In the master`s chambers,     they gathered for the feast….
Dm                                                  E7
They stab it with their steely knives but they just can`t kill the beast.

Verse 6
Am                                     E7
Last thing I remember,      I was running for the door,
G                                            D/F#m
I had to get my passage back to the place I was before.
F                                                 C
“Relax“, said the night man,     “we are programmed to receive,
Dm                                                           E7
You can check out any time you like,       but you can never leave!“

Instrumental Outro > 

Am-E7   G-D/F#m   F-C    Dm-E7    

Am@-E7@    G@-D/F#m@   F@-C@    Dm@-E7@ 

Am-E7-G-D-F-C-Dm-E7      Am>E7>G>D>F>C>Dm>E7 

Start to fade out here
Am-E7-G-D/F#m-F-C-Dm-E7  ............

"/" = pause after downstroke      "@" = arpeggio here      
">" = play right through
"D/F#m"  means play the D, and on the last strum slide index up to F#m.

To make it really fun, I've added a good pickup, so I'm amped too. For those looking to electrify their ukes, without spending a fortune, I can highly recommend teh K&K Big Shot pizeo pickup.
It is responsive and very thin. Thin enough to place it under the strings and in front of the bridge, which I find to be the ideal location. Rock on!

Also...for finding chord variations online, I really like:
http://chordfind.com/4-string/
It has four tunings for ukulele, and variations for complexity.

For  a  really good link for music, check out:
http://betty.hypermax.net.au


On chords, and chord progressions....I am sometime interested in finding interresting progressions, that happen to be conveniently located close to each other. Give this progression a shot.
4/4 timing.

C /  Cma7 /C7 / A7
C / Em / B7 / Bbma7
G / D / F#m / D7 /

Enjoy!

Spank that Uke!

that's what lots of guitar players know as "the Stand By Me" progression. Y'know: When the night has come, and the land is dark, and the moon is the only light I see, yadayadayada... oh darling stand by me. The minor of the VI is often called the relative minor. With the I, IV, V and their 7th forms, their minor forms and their relative minors(all are always the minor chord form three frets down) you can play about 75 percent of all music in rock, blues, country and many different folk styles as well. If you can't figure out a chord from those try the flat III or the flat VII as in the Hotel California use of C and G in the key of A that's charted out just above (thanks for that by the way). At least you can fake your way through pretty good.

For instance and just because I never see this one charted out. C - G7 - C - F - C - G7 - C = Happy Birthday. So that's  I - IV7 - I - V -I - IV7 - I.

Quote:
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

Here are a few links Ive found with tabed ukulele music,

I had a learn to play book that I started with but began to loose interest due to the limited songs, These links have quite a few songs plus some contemporary songs as well...More than I think anyone would be able to find in any store... Now I have more than enough music to keep me interested and challenged... Hope this helps anyone here as much as it did me!
