Praeludium – Melpomene Suite (Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer)

At the first glance, the melpomene suite is not very well suited for solo playing with re-entrant ukulele tuning. Surprisingly some of the pieces sound quite interesting with the ukulele nonetheless, despite the many overlapping voices in the ukulele arrangement.

Three more Christmas Carols

Besser late than never: I was able to upload three more Christmas music videos just in time for Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas!  

Alle Jahre wieder

A Christmas Carol from my free German Christmas e-book.

Ukelige Weihnachtslieder

You can download the e-book here. Who didn’t make this experience? You want to motivate somebody to play ukulele — however even “simple” chords like G or D can be a challenge for absolute beginners. So I tried something to make it easier for them: An e-book of German Christmas carols with simplified chords. These…

Jesu, meine Freude

Originally a hymn by Johann Franck and Johann Crüger. I used the setting by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 227, chorale) for my arrangement for solo ukulele. Played with my Brüko No. 6 soprano ukulele. Merry Christmas!

Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern

A more than 400 years old hymn by Philipp Nicolai.

The Hymn of Joy

I simply wanted to play some uplifting music… What diminishes my joy a little bit is that I promptly received a copyright claim via content ID by Youtube.

It doesn’t always have to be a sophisticated arrangement… Gaudete is a wellknown Christmas carol from the 16. century.

Der Morgenstern ist aufgedrungen

A more than 400 years old German Christmas carol by Daniel Rumpius, played on my Brüko No. 6 soprano ukulele.

Tourdion with zither and ukulele

I recorded this video last summer with Zacquine. We decided now to publish it. I think ukulele and zither can work amazingly well together!
