Would you like to share some Christmas and Holiday songs
On your ukulele this season? Are you not so comfortable with singing?
How about letting your ukulele do the singing for you?
This is precisely the advantage of Chord/Melody playing.
With Chord/Melody playing the ukulele is enabled to play both the melody
As well as the accompaniment to each selection. It’s all done as a purely
Instrumental solo.

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 . . .
“HAPPY STRUMMING”

Take a peek below at the full table of contents . . . Selections vary from beginning tablature playing to more advanced. Something for everyone in this collection. Perhaps you’ll only get a start on some of these pieces this year but just think, they are classic standards and you will be fully prepared by next season to be performing a myriad of Christmas solos. . .

In 2011 I released an earlier Ukulele Christmas eBook. This is entirely different from that book.
All of the pieces in this newest collection are all Chord/Melody format. 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.
Here is a link that further explains the contents of the 2011 “A UKULELE CHRISTMAS”
