Baritone Ukulele Chord Chart – I Got Rhythm

I love this song for teaching AABA form, its fun chord progression, and just generally having fun while singing. One activity I used to do with elementary students was to have them list things that made them feel good or happy, and have them make their own versions of the song using those things. I love giving students opportunities to be creative and share what they love in their lives!

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.
