    I didn't even have to read the description. As soon as I saw "uke ritual," I knew it.
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    i love hawkwind (obviously!!!) but i have to admit, i don't know all their songs - they've been going since the sixties, there are approximately a trillion albums, and roughly a gazillion songs, so, unlike in marc bolan week, where i wasn't expecting to hear any new (to me) songs (and was thrilled to hear trent bring one that i hadn't ever heard before), this week is gonna be a voyage of discovery for me too! and i can't wait!

    ooh!! Love that art and the intro song.You should win your own T shirt! I had planned to have a few weeks off cause I was snowed under with life matters...but I'll have a go this week...not that I know any Hawkwind ditties.Not sure why they escaped my prog rock radar.
    But I did do a quick search.And a heads up.If you search Acoustic Hawkwind some acoustic sets they've done come up.Might help in seeing how their songs translate from big productions down to SOTU friendly.

    That's what Jherek Carnelian would have looked like if he'd had a ukulele.

    here's a good a-z list of hawkwind song titles, there's over 900
    https://www.famousfix.com/topic/hawkwind/songs

    ultimate guitar website has chord sheets for for some of them...
    https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/artist/hawkwind_5510

    but the basic chord structure of hawkwind songs tends not to be over complicated.......... mmmmmmmmm i wonder why i love bringing them so much on uke???! ............ for songs without any chords already online, you can run a youtube vid link for the song through the chordify website https://chordify.net/ ...with straightforward basically bluesy rock songs, like hawkwind do, it's normally easy to see the basic chord patterns in what chordify suggests - if you simplify everything down to a few repeating basic chords, you should be either spot on, or close enough for jazz, well, close enough for space rock!
