play alongs and tuning

Wow!  We covered a lot today.  As promised, here are some songs that you can play and sing along on.  There are several songs here that we didn't do, but you can figure out the new chords.  "Mairzy Doats" has some really cool chords and the first line is actually pretty easy.

"You Are My Sunshine"
"Down in the Valley"
"Mele Kalikimaka"
"Mairzy Doats"

Here is the link  to the tuning website.  I tune by singing "My dog has fleas", but that only works if you know the tune.

Next week we will learn how to transpose any song into a ukulele friendly key.  Let me know if there is a particular song that you would like to learn and we can use it as a example as we are learning.  Have fun with your ukulele this week.
