Full Ukulele performance and tutorial of “WHEN I FALL IN LOVE” by Ukulele Mike Lynch as seen and heard on VIMEO

According to Wikipedia: “When I Fall in Love” is a popular song, written by Victor Young (music) and Edward Heyman (lyrics). It was introduced in the film One Minute to Zero. Jeri Southern sang on the first recording released in April 1952 with the song’s composer, Victor Young, handling the arranging and conducting duties. The song has become a standard, with many artists recording it, though the first hit version was sung by Doris Day released in July 1952. Probably the most notable recording was that done by
Nat King Cole,
Doris Day’s recording was made on June 5, 1952. It was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 39786 and issued with the flip side “Take Me in Your Arms”. The song reached number 20 on the Billboard chart.


This arrangement has been done as a Chord/Melody style. With Chord/Melody style there is no fingerpicking involved. Simply strum the strings with the thumb and the melody sings out on top. Below is a short clip of the opening bars of WHEN I FALL IN LOVE. . .
