Ukulele Tabs (and Chords)
I am sending out free weekly lessons and tips to my mailing list. Sign up and join the fun!
Menuette III by Robert de Visée, arranged by Ross Malcolm Boyd
Originally written for lute in the key of Em, I transposed this piece to Cm to better fit the range of a soprano ukulele with reentrant tuning.
Adoration Excerpt – Florence Price
This reduction of Price’s beautiful composition was arranged as an exercise in reading tablature for ukulele students.
Rolling Hills by Ross Malcolm Boyd
A duet for two ukuleles.
This Land Is Your Land by Woody Guthrie
Chords and lyrics for the classic Woody Guthrie tune.
The Highlandman Kiss’d His Mother F Scottish Reel
Arranged in the key of F for re-entrant tuning.
Stool of Repentance – Scottish Strathspey
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.
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.
Chords, tablature, and lyrics in the key of F for all your birthday needs.
Arranged for Low G tuning.
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!
