A good crowd showed up last Sunday to jam, including some new faces. Here’s what we played:

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!
