As I explained on the previous page, I am a big fan of the power the internet offers in terms of finding ukulele versions of songs you want to play. I'd like to take a moment to
explain a little bit about how to search out the music you'd like to play on your uke.
There is a little "search window" at SheetMusicPlus.com that you can use to quickly find books that contain songs you'd like to play. This is WAY easier than the pre-internet
ritual of leafing through hundreds of books at a music store, stopping to peruse the contents of any likely looking volumes.
As I'd mentioned on the previous page, finding a score for "Rubber Duckie" is a big thing for me. So I put Rubber Duckie Ukulele into the search thingie, and got - zero results. And this, my friends, is one of the sad realities of the ukulele itself - there are not NEARLY as many scores available for the uke as there are for more "serious" instruments. Putting just Rubber Duckie into the search thingie, I find that there are indeed 32 volumes available that include the song. But no-one has arranged it, and had it published, for ukulele. YET. (I long ago "transcribed" the song from the guitar version I found at the library - but this is hardly a practical solution for most beginners. Always remember though - that option ALWAYS exists...)
I'm also a big fan of the song "Stayin' Alive". Wonder if I can find that, for the ukulele? I put Stayin' Alive Ukulele into the search thingie, and voila: Here it is!
On the next page, I'm going to talk about a very popular song for the ukulele, that has some people confused - and how to avoid the confusion.
