My Beginner Lessons 3 – Rainbow Connection (Low G Ukulele)

Transposed the song to G so it fits the G Chord-version from Ukulele Mike.

Side note – More TuxGuitar experiment: Apparently, using the “Print” function will generate a nicer-looking PDF than “Export to PDF”.

lesson 07 – Rainbow Connection (Low G) originally from The Daily Ukulele by Jumpin’ Jim
*You do need a Low G ukulele to play this.*

-> High G version (in C Major) <-

My Beginner Lessons 3 – Rainbow Connection

Transposed + transformed another song from The Daily Ukulele by Jumpin’ Jim. This time, I used TuxGuitar… not as good as PowerTab I think. Damn, I need better software… It is time to try guitar pro?

lesson 07 – Rainbow Connection (I learn the G version in my ukulele class. The book is in F. My uke is high G and doesn’t go that low, so I have to transpose to C.)

The original song with the original singer – Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson)

 

Guido teaches Ukulele Mike version in class

McDonald’s I’m lovin’ it – Ukulele Tab

Best key would be in C, but my uke is high G, so it doesn’t go that low. I end up having it in E-flat.

My Beginner Lessons 2

I have bought The Daily Ukulele by Jumpin’ Jim and transform the music notes into ukulele tab (I have also transposed some parts so it will fit for a high G ukulele). It’s really an amazing book. Some songs are old, but it’s very good for beginners. You will eventually learn to love this book. Songs included are “Don’t worry, Be happy”, “Hey Jude”, “Close To You”, “Tonight You Belong To Me”, “Que Sera, Sera” and a bunch of Christmas songs. They give you the chords and the singing parts in music notes.

I did the transform and transpose by hand, big thanks for this book. Please support the original book and buy it if you enjoy playing 1 song everyday without thinking/picking.

You can find my tablatures here:

lesson 04 – The Sound Of Music – Do Re Mi

lesson 05 – Disney’s It’s a Small World

lesson 06 – Dream a Little Dream of Me

I will do a proper ukulele book review later. (So far, I have four books.)

Ukulele Android Application

I have tried many “music”/”ukulele” related Android apps. Some are good, some are bad. These are some free must-have Android Apps that all ukulele users should have:

  • Ukulele Tabs (allow you to search for song tabs, require internet access, con: no lyrics)
  • DaTuner Lite (chromatic tuner, con: sometimes my phone freeze using this app…)
  • gStrings (chromatic tuner, con: sometimes my phone freeze using this app too…)
  • My Ukulele (*BEST* virtual ukulele, quite handy if you don’t have a uke around)
  • Ukulele Chords (an app that provides chord shapes)
  • Ukulele Fretboard (similar to Ukulele Chords)
  • Ukulele Tuner (an app that only plays gCEA tune, good if you want to tune by ears)
  • Mobile Metronome (I have tried a few metronome app and so far, this one is the best)
There are a few “combined” tuner/metronome/chord apps, but they are not working nearly as well as the separate ones (especially when you are comparing those metronomes to Mobile Metronome). Plus those ones are made for guitar, so to change to gCEA tuning… that’s a pain.

Get Lost Creep (Song Parody)

One of my uke friends love Radiohead’s Creep (Uke chord for the original song) very much…

but whenever i listen to that song… I really want to parody it… I will sing it whenever a hipster just drink one coffee and stay in my shop all night. So, here it is:

Get lost, creep

When you were here before
Couldn’t look me in the eye
You dress like a hippy
You stayed here all night
You finished your coffee
And asked for a refill
You said you were special
But you’re nothing special

And you’re a creep
You’re a weirdo
What the hell are you doing here?
You don’t belong here

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I just want to close
Leave your money and go
I want you to get out
When I count to three
My shop is not special
Stop talking and get out

And you’re a creep
You’re a weirdo
What the hell are you doing here?
You don’t belong here

He’s running out the door
He’s running out
He runs runs runs

You didn’t pay your bill
It’s just one coffee
And you stayed for the night
Using my Wi-fi

And you’re a creep
You’re a weirdo
What the hell are you doing here?
You don’t belong here
You don’t belong here

Duffy Warwick Avenue Ukulele Chords

This is my favorite song from Band Hero… (No, it’s not Rock Band or Guitar Hero. There is really a game called Band Hero!!!) But I can’t seem to find the ukulele tab for it. So… now I kinda have to tab it myself…

Intro: Bb, Dm, Eb, Ebm

………..Bb…………………….Dm
When I get to Warwick Avenue
…………..Eb……………………….Ebm
Meet me by the entrance of the tube
…………Bb………………………..Dm
We can talk things over a little time
………….Eb…………………………..Ebm
Promise me you won’t step out of line

………..Bb…………………….Dm
When I get to Warwick Avenue
………..Eb………………………Ebm
Please drop the past and be true
…………………….Bb……………………….Dm
Don’t think we’re okay just because I’m here
……………….Eb……………………….Ebm..F7
You hurt me bad but I won’t shed a tear

Bb…………F…………..Dm……….Eb
I’m leaving you for the last time, baby
Gm……………….F……………….Dm………….Eb
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
Bb……………F…………….Dm……….Eb
I’ve been confused, out of my mind lately
Gm.(stop)……………………..Dm.(x2)…..Eb
You think you’re loving but I want to be free
Eb……Bb……………..
Baby you’ve hurt me

………..Bb…………………….Dm
When I get to Warwick Avenue
…………………..Eb………………………..Ebm
We’ll spend an hour, but no more than two
…………..Bb………………………..Dm
Our only chance to speak once more
……………………..Eb………………………….Ebm
I showed you the answers, now here’s the door
………..Bb…………………….Dm

You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
..Cm………..Bb…………Eb…………Bb
I want to be free, baby, you’ve hurt me

Eb………………………F……………………..Dm…
All the days spent together, I wished for better
……………………………………Eb
But I didn’t want the train to come
Eb…………F…………………….Dm……
Now it’s departed, I’m broken-hearted
Dm……………………………….
Seems like we never started
Eb………………………F……….Dm………………….F….
All those days spent together when I wished for better
F…………………………………Eb……………
And I didn’t want the train to come! Oh, oh

Bb F Dm Eb x3

Gm.(stop)………………………….Dm.(x2)..Eb
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
..Cm………..Bb…………Eb…………Bb
I want to be free, baby, you hurt me
…….Cm………Bb….Cm………..Bb
You don’t love me, I want to be free
………Eb…………Bb
Baby, you’ve hurt me

P.S. My Lady Gaga’s Wonderful ukulele chords is one of the best around (actually, it’s the only one around)… but somehow Google search does not care for me. Google, you suck. Yahoo, on the other hand, covers my chords. Yahoo, you rock. Even Bing covers it… Bing, today is the day you suck less.

We will be covering lesson 3 and 4 + one chord song (Just the way you are – Bruno Mars, chords by Ukulele Strummer). Anyone is welcome to join even if you don’t know me in person. Bring your uke, or we can go Tomlee Music together to get one before the meeting!
