The massive ukulele song list!

The massive ukulele song list!

Advance warning - this post on Got A Ukulele is a long one - what I promised I would do is collate all of the answers in my competition to win a Ukulele strap in one place as an easy to find list. What a great list for this musical instrument!

Baritone ukulele

The idea of the competition question was to provide a list of inspiration for new players who often struggle to think of new songs to try. You certainly put the effort in, and as you will see, the list is HUGE! A bit of Googling will find you the chords to these songs (or ask the question on Ukulele Underground. So how about this for a challenge - aim to pick a new one of these songs and learn it each day or week (depending on how far along you are with your learning!) - what a great way to learn a repertoire!

The entries were also interesting in terms of their broad spread - it must be said though, the Beatles won it in the popularity stakes. So, here you go - the complete song list! (sorry - I don't know all the artists! - You will also find that the total number doesn't equate to the number of competition entries - that's because I have stripped out the duplicate submissions. Still a massive list though!)
