Christmas Intermediate Chord Melodies
This evening, I have put the final touches on a set of 15 intermediate chord melodies for Christmas (all songs in the public domain) that are available through my Buy Me a Coffee Page (direct link: https://bmc.xyz/l/christmasuke) The price for the collection, which includes quite a bit of features is $6 US (Two “cups of coffee”).
Each of the songs is arranged for GCEA and DGBE, work with High G and Low G, and also stay within 12 frets so that any ukulele can play them.
I recorded a (rather imperfect) demo for each song, which are releasing daily on YouTube through Friday, December 17th, as well as a tutorial which is an unlisted link to a YouTube video. The demonstrations can be heard on YouTube.com/ukestuff (Playlist link: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8_PsjHwo54Tjz5yMXdGTvJa08c8iEv9O), and the video links for the tutorials are in the PDF that is available for purchase. Each demonstration features High G, Low G, and Baritone. (Note: if you are reading this before Friday, December 17th, videos that have not been released yet will not load from the playlist, but all videos will be available on 12/17/21)
If the project is successful, I may offer paper versions in the future. And I may also expand the offerings (free of charge to those who have already purchased the arrangements) in future years.
There are actually 16 songs, as my arrangement of “Away in a Manger” includes both common versions of the song.
- Angels We Have Heard on High
- Auld Lang Syne
- Away in a Manger (2 Versions in one arrangement!)
- Carol of the Bells
- Coventry Carol
- Deck the Hall
- The First Noel
- Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
- Joy to the World
- Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming
- O Christmas Tree
- O Come, O Come Emmanuel
- Silent Night
- We Wish You a Merry Christmas
- The Wexford Carol
