Ukulele Tablature

Go Rest High on That Mountain – #Gospel #Clawhammer #Ukulele

Clawhammer ukulele arrangement of the Vince Gill gospel song, “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” I’m including a PDF tablature of the break that I played at the beginning and again at the end. The clawhammer accompaniment for the verses is the standard clawhammer technique taught in the 4 clawhammer ukulele video lessons found here:

Here’s the tablature:

 

Under the Double Eagle – Clawhammer Ukulele

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.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – Fingerpicking Ukulele and EZ Chord Melody Solo

Since it’s so well known and a simple melody, this is a great song to get you started with fingerpicking on the ukulele. On the recording I played the Fingerstyle #2 arrangement. I should add that, although it’s a simple melody, I’ve arranged it in a Travis Picking style with lots of notes in the #2 arrangement and if you listen to the recording you’ll notice it’s not exactly a beginner arrangement.

The Fingerstyle #1 arrangement is a simplified version and would be best to start with if you’re a beginner.  I also included an EZ Chord Melody Solo.

Sittin’ On Top of the World – Fingerstyle Accompaniment for Ukulele

I’m only including one arrangement for Sittin’ On Top of the World because that’s all I played in the recording. It’s a bouncy and kind of bluesy traditional tune that I recorded in the key of G and in between a couple of verses I played a harmonica solo. The fingerstyle ukulele accompaniment that I play while I’m singing is Travis Picking style — be sure to keep your thumb moving and alternating 4 times in each measure.

 

Here’s what I played on the uke…
