The melodies used in these arrangements are drawn from various Jewish traditions, secular and sacred, and are among the most popular of tunes. Included are Sephardic and Eastern European folk tunes, Hasidic and Klezmer tunes, and liturgical songs.

       The arrangement styles are varied, including simple melody (with lyrics and chords), expertly arranged classical-style solos for players at all levels, and four lengthy duets and a trio. Players of any level of expertise can enjoy this collection - whether solo or together with others. 

       In addition to the (expected) Notation Guide and Chord Charts, the author has generously included some unexpected treats. These include the interesting and informative “A Brief Music Theory Lesson: About the Scales in Jewish Music,” a thorough Glossary, and a ten-page section of Annotations.

       The study notes in the Annotations can guide you toward playing with more ease and/or explain “curious” fingering suggestions. And for less experienced players, they also provide some foundational information, including explanations of notations and instruction in technique.

49 Pages $14.95                                                          49 Pages $14.95


​​These two books have identical contents, but written in different keys, so that they are comfortable to play on the specific instrument they are arranged for.  Each book includes 21 classical/fingerstyle arrangements of favorite traditional Christmas tunes.  Arrangements are in the easy and intermediate range and are presented in both standard notation and tablature.


CONTENTS: Angels We Have Heard on High, Away in a Manger, Carol of the Bells (Duet), Coventry Carol, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Good King Wenceslas, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, The Holly and the Ivy, I Saw Three Ships, In the Bleak Midwinter, Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, Jingle Bells, The Little Drummer Boy, O Christmas Tree, O Come All Ye Faithful, Ode to Joy, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, We Three Kings, We Wish you a Merry Christmas, What Child Is This?

       Although the book is primarily for ukulele with a low G string fourth string on it, there are several pieces to enjoy if you like to keep a high G string on your ukulele. The chords for vocal accompaniment are fingered the same way regardless of tuning. In addition, seven of the melodies do not use the fourth string at all and are therefore appropriate for either tuning. They are labeled as such in the Annotations.

   The two books above contain the same pieces of music, but in different keys, so that each is comfortable for the particular ukulele it is written for. 

    Traditional Celtic songs and instrumentals from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Cornwall arranged for low G ukulele. These are easy and easy-intermediate fingerstyle (or classical style) arrangements presented in both standard notation and tablature.

    Most of these pieces are in a two-voice texture. That is, they include a bass line to be played with the thumb while the other fingers play the melody. In the pieces presented in a one-voice texture, chords are provided for an optional accompaniment by another ukulele or guitar. In addition to the melody and chords, lyrics are included for two songs. There is also a fingerstyle duet at the end of the book in which both ukuleles have an interesting part to play.

    A brief music theory lesson is included regarding the modes one finds in Celtic music. In addition, there is a helpful Glossary and Notation Guide and Chord Charts for the most frequently used chords on ukulele.
