Hi all,
My fiance and I are getting married in August and want to play a ukulele duet during the reception. We are beginners with less than a year of playing under our belts, but we have started playing more interesting stuff. We have been practicing Europa and Gypsy Ukulele with the tutorials on UU, but could anyone recommend another duet we could do? Maybe more upbeat? I've been trying to find tabs for a duet version of Miserlou and/ or Sway (Dean Martin) to no avail. Any suggestions or tabs would be great! Sway would be too cool!

Thanks,
d2ny

Are you looking for an instrumental rendition, or are you two planning to sing?

2 ideas:
Moldy Peaches "Anyone Else But You"
The classic "Tonight You Belong to Me"

There are a number of exotic chords and fast changes in this song. I just sent you a message with the chords. Take a look at it and give it a shot. If you need some more help, let me know.

It's seriously one of the coolest things someone could say to me. If I've had a hand in increasing the amount of musicians in the world, that's awesome.

Good luck with the tune.

Thanks for the tip, I think this song has been beaten to death on the uke though!

You might want to look into Canon in D or Breezin' by George Benson. They are both wonderful instrumental songs that work well with 2 ukes. But I'm not sure if these songs are good for weddings, haha.

Here are the links:
