whats a good song for valentines day? doesnt have to be an uke/guitar made song. In fact, doesnt even have to have words. In fact in fact, doesnt even have to be a song song, like a background music for an anime show. Preferably something that can be picked. I can make it work.
i know its early but i wont know if its hard. i may need to practice long time.

Hmm any chance someone know how to play Howie Day's Collide or Lifehouse's You and Me on ukulele, because those would be pretty fitting.

other than the bridge, collide is just a chord progression...
B, F#, G#m, E

strum patern i use is

down down down, down up, up down, down up down up

its a little high, and so you might want to transpose down to...
G, D, Em, C

.........

you and me would be a lot more difficult to play on the uke, because the actual fingering on the guitar is different to get that sound. and it uses all 6 strings on the guitar to make the distinct sounds that sets that song apart. i havent quite tried to make a uke version of the song yet, but it sounds like a good challenge.

Oh It is Love by Hellogoodbye, or is that too played out?

One thing ive learned from my seven years with my wife (not married seven but together for seven) is that the corniest things are the best:cool::cool:

It was halarious.. but she loved it.

Hey thanks! The first chord progression sounds pretty good, except G#m is somewhat hard to finger...unless there is some easier way. Hmm. I'm thinking that Collide is one of those songs that is are actually easier to play on guitar.

WAIT A SECOND! These are the same chords as Aldrine uses for I'm Yours, aren't they? O_o. That makes things a bit easier. BTW, I'm Yours is a great song and easy to play too...minus the pinky mute.

several ways you can play the G#m

i play it x342 with x being muted g string with thumb

or you could play it 1342 with your index at 1, ring at 3, pinky at 4, middle at 2.

or 4342 with ring on g, middle on c, pinky on e, index on a strings

yeah, same chords as "im yours"

A song that I always like to play for that special someone is Cecilio and Kapono's About You. That works. Lionel Richie's Truly will also get it done.

You could do Jack Johnson's "Better Together" thats a good song and its not hard either.

I think some of these would be fun to sing:

Meant to be - Tinapu
Drop baby drop- krater boys
all my life- baba b
Honestly- opihi pickers
lemonade- passion

Both did technically. Sean Na'auao was in the Manao Company when they released Drop Baby Drop.

How Deep is Your Love - Aldrine's version. That's an awesome Valentine's song.

not "oh it is love", just wait a little while and they play "Can't help falling in love with you"

the chords are really easy, not so much the singing though.
