I've just received a copy of The Beatles For Ukulele from Amazon. Looks OK - 20 songs with chord diagrams to play along with, as well as musical notation for the melodies.


 

I'm making my way through that book, but I've been stuck on Ticket To Ride for a while just because it's a tough song to duplicate with a uke. The best song I can play is With A Little Help From My Friends, but that's mostly because my voice sounds most like Ringo's...unfortunately.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I didn't notice it before, but during the coda to Free As A Bird, Paul does these really nice Come Together-style bass runs. Nothing to do with the ukulele but there you go. Thanks for posting that clip Zig - I'd not seen it before.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Very cool. I haven't played my uke in a while (damn you guitar!) but the best thing I learned was a fingerstyle version of In My Life.

That's pretty cool.

But I don't think that was a good arrengement.

 

In My Life doesn't suit (for me tough) a jazz ballad.
