Rock Ukulele Thursday, October 28, 2010

At Stanton’s Sheet Music we have noticed increased interest in the ukulele, especially among young people.  Ukulele playing has been used more in commercials lately too–Travelocity has had such an ad.

In response to the increased interest in the ukulele, Hal Leonard Publishing has been releasing some new books, especially for the rockers among us.  “AC/DC for Ukulele” and “Black Sabbath for Ukulele”   include full lyrics for the songs included in each book, chord boxes, and riffs in ukulele tablature.  ”The Beatles For Ukulele“  has the melody line, words, and the chord boxes included.

The AC/DC book has 22 songs, including “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” and “Back in Black”. Â  The Black Sabbath book has 18 songs, including “Paranoid” and “Heaven and Hell”. Â Â The Beatles book has 20 songs including “Michelle”, “Yellow Submarine”, and “Penny Lane.”

If you like the ukulele, but can’t stand  “Down by the Old Mill Stream”,  latch onto one of these rock books!
