I should re-record the video for this one but until I do, I hope this will suffice. It’s one I recorded years ago as a quick example. One take, two or three missed notes, bad quality… I could go on and on. Anyway, it should give you an idea of the song. There are four arrangements: just the simple melody, then three increasingly challenging clawhammer ukulele arrangements for the tune. I took much more time with the arrangements (done at a different time) and it’s a great clawhammer tune for the ukulele.

Level 3 Clawhammer Uke Arrangement:
The beautiful old Shaker hymn arranged for ukulele. The audio file is done in clawhammer style. I haven’t done a recording of the chord melody solo but it’s an easy solo (beginner level) with nothing tricky so it shouldn’t give you any trouble if you’re familiar with the tune.
Here’s just the melody, which I used as the foundation for the arrangements:
