Perfect for Holiday UKULELE performances: 33 Song Christmas Ukulele Chord/Melody eBook Now available – All selections arranged by Ukulele Mike Lynch
Chord/Melody playing is by far the easiest approach
to solo instrumental performance.
This collection of timeless Christmas Classics
uses nothing but Chord/Melody style.
No fingerpicking is required. . . Only the thumb is used.
How much easier could it get?
The 4 lines on the bottom stave represent the 4 strings
of the ukulele.
The top line is the first string (That closest to your knee)
The bottom or 4th line is the string closest to your chin.
The numbers on the lines represent the fret numbers. . .
If you see a ZERO that means an open string.
The treble clef stave on top is there to assist in reading
the time values for each note.
Keep in mind that in solo playing, one does not always
strum all 4 strings together. There are many times
when we are asked to play perhaps only 2 or 3 strings.
This is a much different approach from simple strumming
accompaniment for singing, but in time and with patience, you
WILL become adept at reading this form of notation. It does take
time and please be patient with yourself. Plan a practical approach
to practice time. Select a short achievable amount of music
for the allotted time. For instance, choose 3 or 4 measures.
Learn the part then memorize and move on.
Then next day go to the next group of measures.
Within a short time you’ll find yourself playing these simple classic songs.
At all times, remember to have fun and as always . . .

Some have already asked, how does this book differ from the “A UKULELE CHRISTMAS” which I released in 2011? Well, this new collection is ENTIRELY in Chord/Melody format. The previous 2011 collection relies largely on more elaborate fingerpicking arrangement. They are equally fine pieces and well worth learning. The 2011 collection also contains a 2nd book of simple strumming accompaniment Christmas songs. Great for holiday gatherings and sing a longs.
