Play Ukulele Hymns During Quarantine and Make the Best of a Difficult Situation

by | May 3, 2020 | About our books | 6 comments

Some of us play ukulele hymns during quarantine to help us get through these trying times. We try to make the best of a difficult situation and remain hopeful.

The novelty of being at home is wearing off

Now that most of the world is sheltering in place during the outbreak of Covid 19, the novelty of being home is wearing off. Some places are beginning to re-open here in the United States, but none of us know when we will go back to “normal” and if the “new-normal” will look anything like how we were living before. There is a sense of loss and grief that all of us are experiencing and that is for those of us who are lucky enough to simply be stuck at home.

Why play ukulele hymns during quarantine

In this time of crisis, we need something that offers us light and hope. What better than easy ukulele hymns? The lyrics are uplifting to your spirits. The songs are easy to play and can either be sung, or simply played. Many of the songs are presented in two different keys so you can choose the key that is best for your voice or is easier to play. Some of the songs with more complicated strumming patterns have the strumming pattern written underneath the melody so you can easily figure out how to fit the strumming pattern with the melody. Each song comes with a suggested strumming pattern and melody tab underneath so you can play the melody even if you don’t read music.

Our songs are beautiful to look at:

Each hymn has:

  1. chords used at the top of the song.
  2. suggested strumming pattern.
  3. melody tab underneath the lyrics.
  4. many verses.

What is included?

So, now you’re probably wondering what hymns are included. There are several options available. If you simply purchase the book, you will get 22 hymns.

If you decide to get one of the online hymn kits, you’ll get online video lessons, instruction on how to move from one song to another using tags and turnarounds, and thirteen chord melody versions of the hymns. You also get either six or twelve extra songs depending on which kit you get.

We are planning on having our hymn book and hymn kits ready sometime in May, so we hope you will keep a lookout for it. Here are the hymns in our book and online hymn kit.
