A good crowd showed up last Sunday to jam, including some new faces. Here’s what we played:
A Beautiful Home , a traditional gospel tune recorded by Hank Williams
Go to Classic Country Lyrics for lyrics and chords.
Drop Baby Drop by Mana’o Company
The video is from the Art Tv Hawai’i archives Mana’o Company performing at the Sheraton Bay Resort (Kona?) in 2010. For a step-by-step lesson on how to play this song, check out this tutorial video by Aldrine Guerrero at Ukulele Underground. The chords can be found at e-chords.com, Tabs for picking are written out in a post by Poi Dog on this Ukulele Underground Forum – scroll down to message #9.
We’re Going To Be Friends by Jack White (White Stripes)
One version of the lyrics and chords can be found at UkuTabs.com. Another version by GRANT YEARDLEY on Ultimate Guitar has easier chords, but I don’t think they sound quite as good.
We also played a few from past playlists (You & I and Five Years Time), and closed with none other than,
Happy Trails by Dale Evans Rogers (recorded with husband Roy Rogers)
There is a good PDF of the sheet music at Dr. Uke, with chord charts above each line in the lyrics, though it is only the first verse. Full lyrics (along with the Roy Rogers Rider Club Rules) can be found at royrogers.com.
Some of the chord charts displayed on these links are for guitar. You can go to UkuTabs.com or Uke-Chords.com for the ukulele charts.
Come play with us Sunday 11-1 at Rockwell!

It is official – Jake Shimabukuro is coming to perform in Juneau! We are so lucky that Linda Rosenthal, JJ&C Artistic Director, seized the opportunity to bring this first class and world famous musician to our city. Jake is a true champion of the ukulele, demonstrating the full range of what is possible on our beloved little uke. Tickets are already starting to move, so get yours soon and please help spread the word. For more info, go to the Juneau Jazz & Classics website.
I’ve been away, but hear that the jam numbers are growing. If you have attended over the winter break and want to send me the titles & artists of songs played, I’ll hunt down links to videos and chords to post so folks can practice. Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones!
