Ukulele ClubOfVirginiaSongbook(April 2010)
Blah, blah, blahThe Ukulele Club of Virginia is affiliated with the Metropolitan Ukulele Association,which brings together ukulele players across the whole of the Washington, D.C.metropolitan region, including the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and Maryland.We meet every couple of weeks or so to play songs, chat, swap tips and techniquesand have a good laugh. We welcome players of all levels of ability, including completebeginners, on a relaxed basis (no regular attendance required) so turn up when you can.At each gathering, we provide the songs, although you are welcome to bring songs alongfor everyone to play. We play the widest possible range of styles of music that works forthe ukulele and which is likely to encourage a good sing-a-long. Typical song choicesmight range from tin pan alley numbers from the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s to jazz standardsto folk, rock and pop songs, and even comic or novelty songs.OK now for the big disclaimer: we give this songbook free to uke players everywhere forsocial and educational use . . . for fun and sharing. If you bought it, you were ripped off.The songs and the arrangements in this songbook are almost wholly ‘borrowed’ and thenadapted from a huge list of extremely useful internet sites, watching online videos, andfrom songbooks, in particular . As such, while we may have changed (cut, changed andadded details) and standardized the formatting to a style we find works for us (includingchords over the line and extensive numerical GCEA fingering guides and very little artworkto ensure minimum file size), we do not claim any authorship, rights, or credit whatsoeverfor any of the contents. The versions and format here work for us they might not work foryou (although if you see serious errors or omissions, do let us know!) If you don’t like theversion we have, don’t shout. Take it and adapt it any way you like until it works for you.The arrangements here come from a wide variety of sources, most having been adaptedfrom the original music to suit the ukulele by some kind soul out there in internet land.We wish to thank all those people who give their time and musical expertise to work out,create, and make available thousands of song sheets for amateur musicians to enjoy.Thanks, in particular, to Arch Larizza, Ray Shakeshaft & John Colter, Dave Means,Chordie, Doctor Uke, Tim Lewis/TUSC, Ultimate Guitar, Scorpex, Alligator Boogaloo,Beatlesite, the late Andrew Rogers, Jumbo Jimbo, Kraziekat, Todd Baio, Guitarguy,Lennonchords, Aldrine Guerrero, the wonderful SOUP/London, Ukulele Club of SantaCruz, Gunther Anderson, Woodshed, Seattle Ukulele Players Association, Ukulele Societyof America, AJ Leonard, Ukulele Mike, and many more talented and generous musicians.If you can see an arrangement here that you worked out and you would like to be creditedin the book, let us know at [email protected] If you have a song you believe we wouldlike to play and could include in a future songbook, please send it to us.
