Chord melody is a solo ukulele technique which allows you to play chords and melody at the same time. It’s magic!

I am really excited to have a chance share my favourite chord melody arrangements with you. I’ve been wanting to do an workshop series like this for some time and I am glad to get it started!


-We will learn 2 arrangements of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, one simple and one a little more “fancy”.
-We will explore chord voicings, left hand and right hand techniques that help with chord melody playing.
-The workshop will be recorded for future reference and reviewing.
-Materials will be sent out at the beginning of May so you can study up if you like. I hope to call on volunteers to demo some parts of the arrangements.
-The level of this workshop is Intermediate-Advanced. Beginners are welcome but it will be challenging.
-Materials are in G-C-E-A tuning.
-On May 14th I will send out a ZOOM link for the workshop

The internet and computers add a lot of variables to a workshop experience. Sometimes technical difficulties or other factors can interfere. I would like you to know that this workshop is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. If for any reason you feel like you didn’t get your money’s worth, contact me and we can arrange a refund.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow was one of the first songs I arranged on my pre-war Martin T-1. Here I am, 10 years ago feeling my way through the new arrangement…

Hope to see you on May 16th!

Best Guido
