Baritone Ukulele

Jolly Roger Baritone Ukulele

Baritone players! It's time to take you seriously, right? I'm working together to create the exact same (only better) introductory program as the ukulele players already have. We'll develop sheet music in keys friendly to baritone (for soloists) and friendly to ukulele (for ensembles) so you'll have the option of playing either way.

On this website, you will learn to play baritone ukulele at a high level even if you're a total beginner to music or the instrument. You will play with a far more sophisticated musical toolbox than most people ever learn on baritone ukulele. You will also learn how to teach others (the right way) to play baritone ukulele.

You're probably going to scan down this sheet looking for something "cool" to play. That is the wrong thing to do. You should start at the top and play everything in sequential order so you will build the proper toolbox of skills.

Sound Files: The MP3 files are to your right if you're on a computer or down below if you're on your phone. You can and should download them or listen to them one zillion times. You should always listen to the recording of a song prior to attempting it. You should also use a tempo slowing app and attempt to play along with the songs at a slow pace and then at increasing speeds until you can knock it out like a guru.

Print out the Progress Tracker to ensure you've worked on everything. (I'm updating it as I add content ... there's lots to come.) Don't skip around. Do them all. If you print out the sheet music, punch the odd numbered pages on the right side so you can see two pages at once.

You might want to peek at the Teacher's Resources page. Once you can play in this style, you'll want to teach it to others. Start with Frère Jacques Soloist Version ... it's the key to everything else.
