PLUC Member’s Choice – The Beatles Complete On Ukulele

23 Oct

As they are my favourite group, one of the first things I wanted to do when starting the ukulele was to play Beatle numbers on it. Fortunately, there are plenty of sites on-line with arrangements (some better than others!) & a variety of books for uke or guitar containing the chords.

I was delighted when I came across The Beatles Complete on Ukulele project around this time last year, when one of the mailing lists to which I subscribed posted a link to Gerald Ross’ rendition of Penny Lane:

The project, masterminded by Roger Greenawalt, ran from January 2009 until end of July 2012: each Tuesday a new uke-related Beatles tune was posted until all of the 185 original compositions released by the Fab Four  between 1962 – 1970 were on-line.

Songs are arranged in the order they were loaded onto the site & now also by album. All are available for free download (although you can pay to receive the entire collection in one download or lend support by buying other merchandise).

If I Needed Someone/Wenn Ich Jemanden Brauche by Christian Jahl:

The songs cover a wide range of styles – from faithful copies to stunning instrumentals; gentle folksy to rocking numbers; and recordings from people you wouldn’t expect – such as Cynthia Lennon & Deepak Chopra.

Definitely worth dipping into.

    I actually downloaded the complete set when it was still free to do so. And I’ve actually organised it all into album & track order. If anyone wants CDs…
