UkeTunes Songbooks – Edition 3

I thought it was probably about time that I updated the songbooks to include all the new songs that I’ve posted on here over the last 18 months or so. And here they are. These songbooks are by far the most downloaded things on this site, and hopefully that means they get used as well. Please feel free to onward share as well as use yourself

As with the last update, I’ve taken the opportunity to include a whole batch of songs that I’d worked on that never made onto this site as individual blog posts. So by my reckoning there are 39 new songs in here since the last edition, making a total of 152 songs in the new book. Eclectic as ever, that includes some synth classics, pop-punk by way of the 60s, a fair smattering of contemporary country-and-folk tinged songs, disco, and even a few contemporary pop hits. But more importantly just good songs (in my opinion, at least!).

These are now compiled into three books:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For reference, here’s the list of all the new songs that are included in the books (those that haven’t previously published on the site are shown with a (*):

UkeTunes Songbook – The 60s and 70s

songbook60s70sWhen I published the last update to the UkeTunes songbook, there was a suggestion from Mike DiCamillo for a 1970s songbook to sit alongside the 1980s one. Seemed a good idea, so here it is.

EXCEPT. I decided to extend it to a 60s and 70s songbook – it seemed to feel like a logical thing to do, and I think those songs sit well together.

So here’s a collection of over 40 songs from that period, running the full gamut from crooning to punk, with a bit of reggae, psychedelia, country, soul, pop and rock along the way.

As ever, please feel free to onward share and use as you wish.
