View Full Version : Warm-up Tunes

When you start to play the uke (guitar, banjo, whatever), do you find yourself always warming up with the same three or four tunes? I know I do. Every few months or so, a tune or two changes, but I stay fairly consistent. For the last 6-12 months my four warm-up tunes have been:

1. Toes (Zac Brown Band)
2. Heartache Tonight (Eagles)
3. Sultans of Swing (Dire Straits)
4. Hallelujah (Various)

My teenaged granddaughters are trying to get me to expand to some of their generation's stuff. Time will tell.

I usually warm up playing the chords of the songs I will be playing. Being old and forgetful, it helps me.
