Star Trek - The Next Generation - For Solo Ukulele - YouTube

Star Trek The Next Generation for Solo Ukulele

Did you watch this? Which was your favourite episode? Mine was Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. Who was your favourite character? Mine was Nute Gunray. By the way, did you know that Jonathan Frakes?

What This Song Can Teach You – 

  • Play in a couple of different keys.
  • This is hard. Give yourself a huge challenge.
  • Plenty of barres.
  • Be like Janeway.

I only managed to squeeze out 1, pretty difficult version of this for you. Normally I’d add a lead sheet as well but if you so require you could pick out the melody line by following what you think could be the highest note. It begins on my favourite Bb barre chord and has a few stretches. Luckily for you D major fans that kicks in for a  few bars in the middle. Anyone a fan of C major? Yeah? Well, you’re in for a treat. Check out bar 39, just after the B major section.

Good luck with this one.

Cagney and Lacey for Ukulele - YouTube

Cagney and Lacey for Ukulele

Cagney and Lacey: Which one are you? One, a single, career-minded woman the other a married working mother. Me? I’m neither. I’m a man with nothing else better to do than post Ukulele videos on Youtube.

Bill Conti wrote this. You know him don’t you? He also wrote the music to Rocky, For Your Eyes only and Masters of the Universe. What a man!

What This Piece Can Teach You – 

  • Play in the key of C.
  • Strum some easy bits.
  • Tricky Campanella if you want.
  • Great cop skills.

How 80’s is this? This is one of your favourite themes; I’ve just decided that on your behalf. I’m afraid I had to skip the actual intro as I’m and old man with weak, frail social skills but you’re very welcome to work it out yourself. Why not upload your version to the web? I’ll watch. I will.

Two versions here for you. It’s not easy so you may want to begin with that lead sheet. I tried to make it not too fiddly but couldn’t resist throwing a few tricky parts in. As for the solo sheet…well…good luck. Page 1 is easy enough. Pick it or strum it, it’s all good. page two really ups the difficulty. Took me more than one take to get this down.

 Buy My Books!

Thinking of giving me a fiver? What better way than buying ‘Christmas Ukulele Duets’?

Not into Christmas? Then by ‘The Jewish Ukulele’. My best seller.

Not into the Jewish? What on earth? Not cool. Not cool. You should buy ‘Classical Guitar for Ukulele’ and have a good think about things.

Browse my books here. Or here. Not working? Try this.

Minecraft - Sweden (Calm 3) for Ukulele - YouTube

I want to talk about Minecraft, about all the mining in it and the crafting, but I can’t. I’m a charlatan. I tried to play it once and found it dull. Sorry kids! The music’s good though! Honestly, stick with me.

What This Piece Can Teach You – 

  • How to play at a slow tempo.
  • Fiddly bits.
  • Acne and tiny moustaches.
  • Work on dynamics.

Ooh look! I forgot to smile in the video. Whoops. I did try once but it just didn’t work out. Youtube commenter, Jordan Mcguire says on the subject, ‘I love your musical ability, but it is diminished by your passion. I want to see you enjoy what you are playing. Let it consume you and take pride in the fact that you are a great musician, because you are. Play every song like it’s your last my friend. That is my loving advice to you. I hope I haven’t offended you and I wish you nothing but success.’ Thanks for the feedback!

Anyhow…

This is a deceptively  challenging piece. There’s a bucketload of stretches in there. There’s counter melodies, a bass line. It’s grand it is. Take your time with it. If you look hard enough, you’ll find the basic melody hidden in there. Maybe try that first and then add in all those silly little shapes. I think that I played it as written but I don’t mind straying from the tracks. This seems to throw some people. Brantley Moate says of my Doctor Who  theme, ‘Great, but your video doesn’t match your tab’. Play this piece however you want. Interpret it your own way. Play it exactly as written, or not. Improvise or don’t. It’s up to you.

They are still there, waiting for you. Want to improve your Jewish Chops? The ‘The Jewish Ukulele’ is all for you. Fancy some Argentinian challenges? Grab ‘Sagreras for Ukulele’ NOW! Are you a tired, underpaid teacher? Get ‘The Classroom Companion’ quick!

Take My Breath Away - Berlin - For Solo Ukulele - YouTube

Take My Breath Away for Ukulele

Ah! Goose! Oh Goose. If you haven’t seen the film, then that will make no sense to you. Also no point in telling you that I cried like a child when he died. In my defense I was a child. Also, careful of that spoiler. Love you.

What This Piece Can Teach You – 

  • Play in the key of C then…D (Kind of)
  • How to buy an ebook from Uke of Carl. Go on. They’re really cheap.
  • A hugely recognisable piece.
  • Something about planes or cocktails. I dunno.

According to the internet, this song was by Berlin. Isn’t that a city? Aren’t those Germans smart? Also, it wasn’t sang by Tom Cruise. I’ve been mistaken all my life. It first came out in 1986 so you’ve had years to get used to the melody. I’ve laid it out in a nice and simple way in order for it to be accessible. You pretty much have to strum a chord then play a little melody. I think you’ll manage. Any trouble, just let me know. I like to talk.

The Jewish Ukulele

This is by far my best selling ebook and I’ve had a lot of lovely comments recently about it. In order to celebrate, I’ve dropped the price down to only Six British quids. But it’s even cheaper for my fans as I sent you a secret discount code when you signed up. Do you remember it? Click here if so!

A good few more ebooks are here. Buy two now!

Mr. Wilson’s Second Liners

Have I mentioned my band to you? I think I have. At Christmas time we did a little gig and we were only joined by James Atkin from EMF! Of course you remember them for doing the awesome ‘Unbelievable’. How cool is that? It’s not the best video but look at how happy I am.
