“JESU JOY OF MAN’S DESIRING” by Johann Sebastian Bach. . . . Chord/Melody arrangement by Ukulele Mike Lynch. . . . In the NEW Chord/Melody eBook FOUR

September 19, 2016



Ive seen numerous arrangements of this classic, iconic composition for the ukulele. They’ve all been primarily in a fingerpicking style. All very fine arrangements but in most arrangements, I’ve found much difficulty in mainly consistent upper fingerboard fingering positions. Therefore, in this arrangement I’ve attempted 2 primary things . . . 1. To keep down lower and in more generally accessible fingerings. 2. To render it in Chord Melody format to remove the challenges presented by fingerpicking. I’m hoping ukulele players will find enjoyment in this arrangement. Note, I also wanted to pay the utmost respect for this revered composition. 

Try the short excerpt below


Note in Chord/Melody style no fingerpicking is involved. Only the thumb is used to play the individual notes as well as strumming the chords.Below is an excerpt of the Chorale section.
