“Love Potion No. 9” – Lesson and Song Sheet!

At our virtual PUG meeting on 6.4.20 ( still virtual due to COVID-19), Steve Edwards presented a revised version on Love Potion No. 9 (Big Yellow p.155).  We have created a song sheet for this new version which is available for download here:

Ukulele Cheat Sheet!

This is a sample of page one.

No, we aren’t suggesting you cheat on your taxes, or your spouse! Use the blue button below to download the 2 page PDF.

The Skeptical Guitarist sent it along, and here’s what he says:

Ukulele Cheat Sheet is a useful alternative to the dozens of chord charts that show all 4 billion possible ukulele chords.  To wit, the A#m7b5 chord or the E#9dim7 chord.  You will never use these chords, nor thousands like them.  And in an effort to squeeze all these useless chords onto one chart, they become MICROSCOPIC.  On MY chart, the front side shows the most common chords grouped into the most common keys in LARGE friendly diagrams, showing the overlap from key to key and acknowledging the different roles of chords within keys.  On the back, you’ll find a chord dictionary of the Major, Seventh and Minor chords for the main chord types (C, G, F, etc.) plus some of the more interesting and useful variations.  Insert it into your 3-hole punch song book for easy reference at the picking part.
