    Default Sing along with a crowd - when you are home alone! Great website

    Hi guys

    I stumbled upon this thread today & thought it handy for beginners (like me) to actually have something to sing along with "with others" whilst at home, with the chords & words being shown on the screen as you go ........) A bit like Mitch Miller & his 'singalong' from the 60s ........ or is that dating me a bit!!

    This is great to practise with on your own! Just Choose a song & strum & sing along with them - you are more likely to do the whole song than just flicking thru pages!

    "You are my Sunshine" is a real hoot!!

    Click on a song, and then click on 'OPEN' (down the bottom of the page) to bring it onto the screen eg, You are My Sunshine. Click on each chord grouping D, C, G to find a set of chords that suits your vocal range - it shows the chords on the left 'as they are played' and also the song with chords written under the actual video footage!

    If the chords shown are too difficult for you, just click on the hand & it will show you alternatives of the same chord that may be easier.

    Also, a Cool iphone app if you have an iphone, based on the same principle!!

    I think I'll be using this a lot as my practise, between uke sessions and have sent the link to family, friends & fellow ukers in my group!

    So glad you are enjoying the site - I think it is a beautie! I don't know many of the songs, but will try & click on one a day, just to see what is on there!!

    I have a friend visiting just now & tried to get her to sing along whilst I played the uke - but she said that when she was in Kindergarten, she was told to MIME as the teacher reckoned she couldn't sing!! 55 years later, she still remembers that remark! I find that terribly sad! I will be sending her the link (even tho she doesn't have a uke) & maybe in the privacy of her own home, she can open up her vocal chords & SING ALONG just for fun!

    Cheers
