I had considered “Ramblin Rose” for quite some time as a likely candidate for the Chord/Melody format arrangement. . . .  It wasn’t until I came to work on the THIRD in the collection that I finally decided to do it . . . . Below are the opening 4 measures of my arrangement . . .

Ramblin 1

As in all Chord/Melody arrangements there is absolutely no fingerpicking involved.  Merely place the finger on the chord designated in the tablature and strum with the thumb.  The melody automatically rides on top.  In most Chord/Melody pieces there are frequent interludes of only melody and once again these are also played with just the thumb.  Since the melody routinely rides up and down the fingerboard, so do the chords. . . Therefore, we have plenty of higher chord inversions.  Take a look at measure 6.  We have  D chord but it is obviously not the typical D chord we might play when strumming songs to sing  a long with. . . This is a higher fret inversion and is played by placing the index finger across all 4 strings at the 2nd fret, then placing the little finger on the 5th fret.  Over time you will become adept at this and it will become routine to be playing these upper fret inversions.

“Rambin’ Rose” is contained in the Chord/Melody eBook THREE . . . It can be purchased by making a payment of $20.00 through the paypal button on the Ukulele Mike website:  Once purchased, it will be personally emailed to you within the day. . .
