Uke Tunes

Uke-ifying my favourite songs


A few months ago a couple of friends dragged my wife and I to a Southampton Ukulele Jam “ukulele cabaret” evening. I really didn’t know what to expect. But I was so taken with what I saw that I thought “I can do that. I want to be a part of that”. So following a bit of research over the next few days I went out and ordered myself a ukulele, and have been enjoying it ever since.

After a while I started hunting out songs I like that I might be able to play. But whilst I found that there were huge swathes of material out there, somehow half the songs I wanted to find I couldn’t. And so I started creating my own chord/lyric sheets for those songs, derived from whatever sources I could find. The purpose of these rather humble pages then is to make those songs available to others. On the assumption that I might not be the only person who likes these songs and wants to give them a bash on the ukulele.

I don’t make any huge claims as to the correctness of the song sheets, and would be only to happy to have feedback and updates if you find anything amiss.┬áThese songs are published in a spirit of openness and sharing. I hope you find some use for them and enjoy them.

    • Happy for you to do that, Jim, with the appropriate attribution (and a link back to the site would be great). If you put it online let me know when you’ve done so and I’ll add a link to it.
