Christmas Intermediate Chord Melodies.jpg

This evening, I have put the final touches on a set of 15 intermediate chord melodies for Christmas (all songs in the public domain) that are available through my Buy Me a Coffee Page (direct link: https://bmc.xyz/l/christmasuke) The price for the collection, which includes quite a bit of features is $6 US (Two "cups of coffee").

Each of the songs is arranged for GCEA and DGBE, work with High G and Low G, and also stay within 12 frets so that any ukulele can play them.

I recorded a (rather imperfect) demo for each song, which are releasing daily on YouTube through Friday, December 17th, as well as a tutorial which is an unlisted link to a YouTube video. The demonstrations can be heard on YouTube.com/ukestuff (Playlist link: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8_PsjHwo54Tjz5yMXdGTvJa08c8iEv9O), and the video links for the tutorials are in the PDF that is available for purchase. Each demonstration features High G, Low G, and Baritone. (Note: if you are reading this before Friday, December 17th, videos that have not been released yet will not load from the playlist, but all videos will be available on 12/17/21)

If the project is successful, I may offer paper versions in the future. And I may also expand the offerings (free of charge to those who have already purchased the arrangements) in future years.

There are actually 16 songs, as my arrangement of "Away in a Manger" includes both common versions of the song.
  • Angels We Have Heard on High
  • Auld Lang Syne
  • Away in a Manger (2 Versions in one arrangement!)
  • Carol of the Bells
  • Coventry Carol
  • Deck the Hall
  • The First Noel
  • Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
  • Joy to the World
  • Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming
  • O Christmas Tree
  • O Come, O Come Emmanuel
  • Silent Night
  • We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  • The Wexford Carol
 
Thanks for these, I think you did a great job, and a lot of work,

Thanks! I like a lot of the arrangements and will only get better at playing them!

Christmas is past, but I did add 2 more songs before it came, and will add more next year (save the link, if you buy the set!).

I’m also considering adding a famous hymns collection as well as a classical music collection. I’ll be sure to post about it if do.
