Also known as The Kiss of Fire
This melody is one of the all time favorite tangos. I tune my uke in D tuning so this arrangement would be in G minor. For ukuleles tuned in C major you will be in F minor.
Watch for 12th fret tabs in the endings of the 2nd and 3rd parts, they look like a first and second fret combination.
|Tico - Tico
Here's another one of my favorites. In arranging this melody I used a style similiar to the charango style where the melody is played as an arpeggio.
Watch for the half notes at the cadences,
the tab doesn't indicate them.
This is an Irish Reel that is a standard among Irish Musicians. The eighth notes are played as swing eighth notes. Irish reels can be played fast for dancing or even faster for listening.
Here's a favorite Old Timey tune.
|Rondo alla Turka
This is part of the final movement of Mozart's Sonata in A
This is another Irish Reel that is a favorite among Irish Musicians. The eighth notes are played as swing eighth notes.
|Carol of the Bells
My arrangement of Carol of the Bells includes the descending bass line along with the melody. Try to sustain the bass notes
|Away in a Manger
Here I used an arpeggio accompaniment to compliment the melody. I also used several jazz chords to enhance the harmony.
Like Away in a Manger my arrangement of Silent Night has an arpeggio accompaniment. Because the melody and the arpeggio are in the same octave a dissonant yet beautiful harmony is created
|Bach's Minuet in G
I arranged this minuet for ukulele & guitar. The guitar part is ready but not yet posted.
|The Girl I Left Behind
Another Old Time tune that dates back to the colonial days. My favorite version is by the original Red Clay Ramblers.
|Die Fledermaus Waltz
A lively waltz from the comic opera Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss.
|Variation on a Theme by Sor
Here is my variation on a classical guitar piece by
The March from Tchaikovsky's most successful ballet.
|Andante by Fernando Sor
This is one of Sor's andantes. This one is in C Major and is in common time. I inverted some of the harmonies to fit them on the uke.
|Mozart Sonata in C Major K545
Here is the theme from the second Andante movement.
|Chopin - Prelude Opus 28 No. 7
A beautiful romantic miniature composed by Chopin in a series of preludes composed in each major and minor key.
|Black and White Rag
This is a fantastic ragtime tune that is a standard among Bluegrass and Old Time players.
