    Default Merry Christmas

    Hi guys, I just want to wish all of you a merry Christmas. What Christmas songs can you all play. I can do feliz navidad, up on the house top, silent night, angels we have heard on high and I can sort of do away in a manger. I'd love to hear some of you playing Christmas carols. I hope Santa brings all of you new ukes to ease your UAS.

    Happy holidays! Some friends and I found a nice version of "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)," and I like to play that one. Here are the tabs for it:

    HAPPY CHRISTMAS (WAR IS OVER)

    Verses. There are two sets of chords/tabs for each verse, played consecutively.

    The corresponding chords are G, Am, D, and G. The tabs incorporate suspended versions of the chords.
    A-2--2--2--2-|-0--0--0--0-|-0--0--0--0--|-2--2--2--2|
    E-3--2--5--3-|-0--0--0--0-|-3--2--0--2--|-3--2--5--3|
    C-2--2--2--2-|-0--0--0--0-|-2--2--2--2--|-2--2--2--2|
    G-0--0--0--0-|-2--1--4--2-|-2--2--2--2--|-0--0--0--0|

    So this is Christmas
    And what have you done
    Another year over
    A new one just begun

    The corresponding chords are C, Dm, G, and C:
    A-3--2--5--3-|-0--0--0--0-|-3--2--0--2--|-3--2--5--3|
    E-0--0--0--0-|-1--0--3--1-|-3--3--3--3--|-0--0--0--0|
    C-0--0--0--0-|-2--2--2--2-|-2--2--2--2--|-0--0--0--0|
    G-0--0--0--0-|-2--2--2--2-|-0--0--0--0--|-0--0--0--0|

    And so this is Christmas
    I hope you have fun
    The near and the dear ones
    The old and the young

    Chorus:
    A merry merry [F] Christmas
    And a happy New [G] Year
    Let's hope it's a [Dm] good one [F]
    Without any [C] fear [D7]

    Verse 2 (use tabs)
    And so happy Christmas
    For weak and for strong
    The rich and the poor ones
    The road is so long

    So happy Christmas
    For black and for white
    For yellow and red ones
    Let's stop all the fight

    [Chorus]

    Verse 3 (use tabs)
    And so this is Christmas
    And what have we done
    Another year over
    And a new one just begun

    And so this is Christmas
    We hope you have fun
    The near and the dear ones
    The old and the young

    [Chorus]

    Outro (use first set of the verse tabs - G, Am, D, and G.

    War is over if you want it
    War is over now (repeat and fade)

    Here are members of the San Francisco ukulele rebellion playing Happy Christmas (War Is Over). Some of us are playing the tabs, others are playing the corresponding chords.

    Merry Christmas to you and to all of our UU friends!!!

    The Ukulele Band of Alabama performs around 25 or so Christmas songs. I have a few more that I can also do. People don't realize that the older carols and songs can be tricky to play - lots of chord changes and strange chords thrown in. Last year, UBA had a tough time working the music up. This year, we worked on it again and added a few tunes.

    Mahalo for all your nice wishes. I'm bery happy with the one i have now. I haven't had UAS again since I got this one. I'm seriously thinking of bringing my little uke with me to my grandma's n playing for them. I didn't get a chance to go caroling but I might get a chance to sing a few songs with little Kalea when I go to grandma's house.
