Baritone Ukulele Chart – “Edelweiss”

This classic from “The Sound of Music” was actually one of the first non-original songs I learned on the baritone ukulele! (which is my “home” ukulele – I learned bari before I learned GCEA)

It’s a great study in music theory and an opportunity to try some fingerpicking. Plus, it’s just a gorgeous song.

“This Land Is Your Land” for Ukulele

This song by Woody Guthrie is so good for kids – not only is the message and history so deep and nuanced, but the chord progression is easy to learn because if you lose your spot, you can always go back to C!

There are at least 3 more verses – there is a lot of opportunity to discuss the point of American history that inspired this song and why it was so important to sing about this.
