Longer days and warmer temperatures have awoken our inner adventure here at Uku Global. Our calendars have been blocked off for epic summer trips and outdoor escapades. Music and adventure go hand-in-hand, so what’s a road trip without the perfect playlist?
The ukulele is the perfect musical companion for any adventure. The packability and convenience of having a stash-and-go instrument means that “ukulele” is always at the top of our packing list. Our Soprano Ukulele is only 20-inches long, so it can fit conveniently into any backpack. We promise — we know from experience!
Campfires and beaches are best paired with friends and a ukulele. Below we have included some links to tabs of our favorite campfire songs adapted from the bulkier guitar to suit your packable Soprano uke. Try learning these songs to impress your friends, pair with your favorite beer, and create longtime memories.
Enjoy your summer adventures and make sure you come prepared with a ukulele!
Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show
With A Little Help from My Friends – The Beatles
Sweet Jane – The Velvet Underground
Cheeseburger in Paradise – Jimmy Buffett
Faces – Ooh La La
P.S. If you end up learning and playing these songs on any adventure, please tag us! It would make our day. Keep the adventure and music alive, Uku Family!
