About three years ago I put together a tab ebook to benefit Ukuleles for Peace with the help of some friends. Since then it’s raised over $3,500 for them. It’s done so well that Ken Middleton has put together a follow-up featuring tabs from me, Colin Tribe, Michael ‘Ukulele Mike’ Lynch, Herman Vandercauter and Ken himself. It also features a foreword from James Hill.
It’s priced at $15 (that’s 75c per tab, that’s about 50p in the UK and 50 Euro cents). You can pick up a copy on Ken’s site for $15. Or just click this button:
What is Ukuleles for Peace?
Ukuleles for Peace brings together Arab kids from Tira and Jewish kids from Hod HaSharon in Israel. They learn ukulele, sing songs (in Arabic, Hebrew and English), gig and have get-togethers. The aim is to create ties between the Jewish and Arab communities in Israel.
What’s in the ebook?
20 tabs (all shown for both C and D tuning – two designed for low-G/A) in an ebook with a foreword by James Hill and an introduction by Paul Moore.
The tabs are for:
