SONGS OF YESTERYEAR for the UKULELE – Arranged & Compiled by “UKULELE MIKE” LYNCH

December 22, 2011

49 All time favorite classics from the early 20th Century combined in one collection.  This book has been a labor of love for me. . . My wife’s grandmother, Mabel Kaufer, acquired her ukulele at about the age of 16 and can be seen in family photos dating back to 1918 playing her uke. . . Through the years she would always be leading the family at Christmas, summer vacations at Lake Sammamish, Family reunions etc.  and the songs she always sang were the songs that she grew up with as a young girl. . . Let Me Call You Sweetheart, Ain’t She Sweet, Moonlight Bay, You Are My Sunshine, For Me And My Gal etc. . . The days of family sing-a-longs and home music making have kinda gone by the way for TV, computer games etc.  It is my sincere hope that making this collection available to ukulele players worldwide will help enable people to once again experience the legacy of these wonderful songs.  The songs in this book have been carefully arranged to be in uke “friendly” keys. . . I’ve also given suggested strumming patterns for each song as well as the starting vocal note.  The uke in its newest renaissance has truly become a cross generational instrument. . . and these songs fit the bill for that.  Great for senior gatherings. . . For family gatherings of all ages.  Let these songs take you to another time. . .  of times past.

The eBook sells for $22.95 and can be purchased by simply paying thru the PayPal donate button on the UKULELE MIKE website: www.ukulelemikelynch.com
