Hey r/ukulele, I did a search and didn't find anything for this. As ukulele enthusiasts, what kind of gift would you appreciate for Christmas?
My mom has been really into uke for a couple years. I'm trying to think of a uke-related xmas gift that maybe she hasn't already gotten for herself. So far she's pretty well set up with a couple ukes, uke bass, amp, tuners, metronome, stands, etc. Her new thing right now is a simple looper so that she can record uke over bass. I'm thinking a mic/pickup? Any suggestions?
Hi, I am trying to learn songwriting for uke and I have a slight problem. I was trying to experiment a bit and found this progression: E7- Am9 with Island Strum and it sound really really great although pretty similar but I don't know what next and I am pretty lost. I would appreciate your help finding some resources :) I know few websites but they are not operating on such extensive chord progression as including m9 chords. Thanks
I’ve found that I really enjoy just picking one string at a time. I know a bunch of chords and a couple chord/melody songs, but I like to play just picking one string at a time. I’ve heard of fingerstyle and fingerpicking but it seems a lot of songs incorporate strumming or chords. I’d like to know so I can search for tabs. Thanks.
As Christmas draws near, I like to switch up the traditional standards with something a little more old school. 1625 in fact.
This song has origins before 1625 and has many verses that are not included here. It is also known by other titles such as "In Praise of Christmas" or "All Hail to the Days." Earliest known version I think is a 17th century broadside "All Hail to the Days" ca. 1625
This version is based on a recording I heard from Golden Bough off the album "Christmas in a Celtic Land" The original is in a minor key. They changed it to give it an up-tempo feel I liked and they added an instrumental version of a traditional celtic melody "Kid On The Mountain" which I found fun and challenging. I hope you enjoy it.
