“I’m a Believer” for Uke Noobz

Here’s the first of our planned play-along songs for the “I Love Uke Very Much” Valentine Ukulele Open Mic and Play-Along, which is slated for 5-7pm on Monday, Feb 13 at the Flying C Cafe upstairs at the Community Food Co-op (908 W Main, Bozeman).

This simplified version of “I’m a Believer” is my first attempt at writing out ukulele chords for ease of play-along-ability. Where the chord pattern is repeated for 2 lines of lyrics, I only put the charts in once, and the colored words indicate where the chord changes are. The double blue line indicates “repeat the part below.” I’m not sure this is ideal, so if anyone would like to try this out and make suggestions, drop me a comment!

I Love Uke Very Much: Valentine Ukulele Open Mic and Play Along

So you have a ukulele, you learned to play a few chords and you’re burning with the desire to strum your way to ukulele greatness? Or wait, maybe you’re actually GOOD on the ukulele, and you wouldn’t mind sharing a tune with a small but appreciative audience? Great!

The first-ever Valentine Ukulele Open Mic and Play Along in Bozeman is your chance to share your love of those 4 strings with the world and other like-minded kooks.

Bring your uke to the Flying C Cafe (upstairs at the Co-op)  on Monday, Feb 13. You can sign up for your moment in the limelight at the open mic, or participate in novice-level play-alongs. The theme is LOVE! Everyone is welcome!

If you have ideas for fun play-along songs (think beginner level chords) with the word LOVE in them, please post a comment. I’ll be posting chord charts for the play alongs ahead of time, so that beginners can wood-shed a bit to be ready. At the event, we’ll either have chords projected on the wall, or some other means of easy cheat-sheet viewing figured out.

Your suggestions and ideas to make this a super fun event are welcome and encouraged. Bring your uke and have some fun on Monday, Feb 13!Bozeman Ukulele Cabaret presents the Valentine Ukelele Open Mic and Play Along
