Released on June 1, 1967. I am trying to get our new uke club to play the album. Does anyone have any good arrangements of the songs? If you do please share them with me ukuleleblues@charlestonhotshots.com

Some look easy and some look hard (Within You Without You , Day in the life).

1. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
2. With A Little Help From My Friends
3. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
4. Getting Better
5. Fixing A Hole
6. She's Leaving Home
7. Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!
8. Within You Without You
9. When I'm Sixty Four
10. Lovely Rita
11. Good Morning Good Morning
12. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)
13. A Day In The Life

Has anyone done an "album cover" like this?

What a great idea! I play many of these on uke but never have time to create tab or write them out. Anyone out there care to post a video of uke songs from Sgt Pepper? I'll try to contribute something.

Awesome! Thanks for the site, I'm saving this, our jam session does Beatles song night once a year. Perfect!

Good luck. Just remember that songs like Day In the Life are absolutely studio creations. It would take very skilled musicians to play them live.

The band http://www.thefabfaux.com, based in NY performs the Beatles catalogue live, playing note for note performances. They make a point to replicate the recordings, especially those that were studio creations. They are not one of those bands that try to imitate the vocals or dress in costume, but it is all about the music

Folks in our uke club have started practicing. Mr. Donald "Noodle" Whitley of the V-Tones sent us this fantastic rendition of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
