The Cliff Edwards (Ukulele Ike) hit from 1928, recorded here in the key of C so the chords are pretty easy to play. I mixed up some strumming and fingerpicking along the way. You can strum or pick according to what sounds good to you.
Strum-Along version of the Elvis classic, “Love Me Tender.” The melody is actually from the old folk song “Aura Lee,” written by W. W. Fosdick in 1861.
Clawhammer Ukulele arrangement of the Vince Gill gospel song, “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” A free PDF printout is available on the ezFolk website for the break played at the beginning and end of the song. The accompaniment for the verses is standard clawhammer backup that is taught on my 4 clawhammer ukulele video […]
A little bit different take on House of the Rising Sun than usually played by uke players. I chose the key of Dm (instead of commonly heard Am) and played “Travis Picking” style with alternating thumb in 4/4 time. If you need help with the fingerpicking pattern I’m basically just playing the #1 pattern in […]
The country classic by Deana Carter, played here in the key of F. It’s in 4/4 time so pretty much any 4/4 strumming (or picking) pattern will work.
One of my favorite gospel country songs, written by Ricky Skaggs. My uke arrangement is in the key of F. It’s a fairly easy strum-along with 6 chords. I generally don’t do any set strumming patterns, especially with a slow song like this. Just any strumming in 4/4 time will work.
