Christmas Ukulele: White Christmas (Chords)

Jason Castro – White Christmas (Easy Chords)(PDF)

Jason ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow on American Idol‘ Castro has just released a ukulele version of White Christmas and you can get it free on Amazon (or on ReverbNation if you’re outside the US). I don’t want to be mean at Christmas time, but I’m guessing that isn’t him ukeing on the track because it being played well.

But he is playing it on this very simple version. I thought that, since I’ve already done a tricky tab for White Christmas, I’d write up these very simple chords

    I have no doubt it is Jason playing the uke on this track. The pianist for American Idol told Jason’s fans in an interview that Jason played the uke in his Studio Version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow, after teaching himself to play the instrument that very week. Jason is a talented musician and takes the time and effort to do something as well as possible.

    He might not have your shops!…but lets be nice to each other!…It is almost Christmas!…I don’t think there is anything wrong with his simplified version…

    Oh man, this video cracks me up!

    Between the ‘leapers leaping’ bit and the old ladies talking near the microphone, I’m not sure which is funnier.

    He can’t remember past five gold rings? Really?

    I think the sixth day, in this case, is ‘six hippies toking’.

    I like to spread my mean throughout the holiday season!

    HannaB: I’m just dubious because there’s a huge gulf in quality between the record and the live version.

    Franco: Nor do I.

    Lonna: I must admit, I’m decidedly hazy on a lot of them between six and twelve.

    Excellent site. However, are you aware of the regrettable double entendre contained in your logo? To whit, I was browsing your site the other day, when my wife across the room asked, “What’s so interesting?” I replied, “Uke Hunt.” And after a brief silence, she said, “What did you just call me?”

    mikeormsby: No, your wife just has a filthy mind.

    Dear Woodshed, my wife does not have ‘a filthy mind’, so watch your language.
