WTF! Imaginary Ukulele Orchestra repertoire

Postby biscuit » Wed Jul 15, 2009 4:45 pm

I know it may be far fetched, but if the occasion should arise that two or more of the fine ukers at WTF! should happen to meet IRL I thought it would be fun if we knew some of the same songs:)

The idea is to just write down the melodies you can play by heart so that other members of WTF!IUO can learn to play them to (if they like) :rock:

And it is probably a good idea to mentioned where or how you learned it :wink:

I want to learn Blue Smoke - think it's beautiful. How hard is it, Kelly?
Planning to learn It's a Heartache, as soon as Helen's string repaired.

Suspect as the evening wears on, we may end up playing imaginary ukes! :D

Not hard in the least. I've been playing uke for 3 weeks now and I've got it memorized and down pat. The d and d7 chord are tough for me because I have fat fingers, but I'm making it work and every time I practice I get better :) Only 5 chords: G, C, A7, D, D7 - you just rearrange what order you play it in from verse to chorus.

Heartache is easy peasy lemon squeezy, but it may be that I feel that way cause it's the first one I learned :lol:

F,Am, Bb (I think), C (verse)
Bb (?), C, Am, Dm (chorus)

It's on http://www.ukulelehunt.com :wink: (under WIUO)

Where did you find Blue Smoke?

Might I humbly suggest this as an addition to the repertoire. The title and artist made me laugh :lol:

If you like a bit of classic country, particularly Patsy Cline, then Walking After Midnight is a great song to play on the uke. It's quite simple and it's fun, since you can add a bit of a shuffle in there.

Is it just me, or does this sound wrong?

Have learnt it and stuff, but it's starting to niggle a bit. Any thoughts from the talented members of WTFIUO ( pretty much everyone but me :D )

Repertiore:

Hoki Mai
Sexy Flower
Albi (above version)

The chords on that last one is for a D tuned uke, but you know that, right?
