View Full Version : Beck's new album- "Song Reader"- sheet music for the uke

Last summer, I read that Beck is releasing his new album as a collection of sheet music- 20 songs, some with ukulele notation.

Right now, as a teaser, you can download the sheet music for "Old Shanghai" at the Song Reader site- http://www.songreader.net/ which has uke notation.

Al from UkeHunt also has his (instrumental) version, which is excellent as always: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=y1A1Mmrz54Y

I played through the chords of the song, it's sort of like songs from the 20s, though it has an E chord, which always throws me for a loop, though I discovered if you barre the beginning of the bridge section (G,F#,Bm,E) it's fairly simple.
