Wow, great resource! Thanks Jeffrey! Bookmarked!
For KalaKiwi: I suggest Uke clubs if there is one in your area. If not, there are lots of sheets online.
I just pick out songs I want to learn and find info about them. I write up my own sheets too.
You can also look at the man lists here of top tunes.
That's awesome! Congrats to you both!
There are a lot of great videos on YouTube that can help you out.
It sounds like you need to start with small steps and then you can work up to playing the way you would like. I'm partial to Cynthia Lin, but Ukulele Teacher, TenThumbs, Ukulele Mike are all great for starting out.
Cynthia Lin has some nice finger picking songs, including Blackbird.
My first advice to new players: RELAX! Ukuleles don't have teeth! They like to cuddle, not bite!
Check out Cynthia Lin on YouTube. I believe she's got a tutorial on Sound of Silence with the the finger picking. Great song.
How do I get my songs out of limbo?
In particular would be a nice addition. I even worked out the tab! Plus it's got all the key changes.
I also have "Eve of Destruction" in limbo. The only difference is the chording at the beginning, which goes from G - Gsus4 to Gsus2 and mimics the record.
Both songs have been in the dead zone since I posted them long ago.
Aw, I miss them!. Never won, but it lit a fire under me to contribute. I'll still post songs though.
"Lullaby" by Trout Fishing In America;
Best lullaby ever!
Let me know what you think.
I love banjoleles. I have not found one I like.
Cynthia Lin does some nice things with one.
I want one! I love the sound.
