I'm going to be making a music video for my dad, revealing that I can play the Ukulele and I need to choose which song to use. I've only had an Uke for a couple months, but I practice all the time and have learned quite a few chords, how to "pick" and how to "chuck", or "slap" (I think it's called).
I'm hoping to find a song that incorporates chucking into it somewhere because I think it sounds really neat. The chords I know (right of hand) are: C, G, F, D, Am, Bb, Em, A, A7, Cm, C7, Cmaj7, Bm7, Dm, E7. That's all I can think of right now. I'm not perfect at playing all of those, but I do have them memorized and can play them, so I'd like to find a song using some of those.
I'm hoping for a song that kind of "shows off the Uke" and is a catchy or beautiful piece. I'm not looking for something that sounds best with singing, as I don't sing very well. So hopefully someone can point me to a song that's a nice instrumental, won't take me a year to learn and sounds best on an Uke. : )
Anyone have any ideas? If you need any more information let me know. I have a Kala Tenor Ukulele.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, I look forward to your replies.
