Hawaiian Boy from the Kamiki Ukulele Method
I’ve been having fun digging through old ukulele methods from the early 1900’s. The Kamiki Method was one of the first I found and it contains some interesting tunes and arrangements. I don’t know if “Hawaiian Boy” was an exercise written for the method book but I can’t seem to find any record of it elsewhere.
The Highlandman Kiss’d His Mother F Scottish Reel
Arranged in the key of F for re-entrant tuning.
In The Hall of the Mountain King
Composed by Joe Harnell for the Incredible Hulk TV series. This duet has a re-entrant uke taking the melody and a low G uke assigned to harmony. Someone in a Facebook group asked about an arrangement or tutorial on “The Lonely Man” for ukulele, and I was very happy to make one!

Twist and Shout (chords and lyrics)
From The Top Notes to the Isley Brothers to the Beatles, this song is a blast to play on the ukulele.
This lovely song is popular among Hawaiian performers. My first introduction to the song was Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s recording. “White Sandy Beach” was written by Vietnamese composer Duc Huy, who cited a walk on the beach in Waikiki with his wife as the inspiration for the song.
Wildwood Flower chords and Maud Irving lyrics
