Songs in Minor Keys Fit the Mood of a Gloomy Day

Do you like listening to songs in minor keys? The somber tones and lyrics of songs in minor keys fit in perfectly with our Chicago day of scattered thunderstorms with interspersed lightning and thunder.

In our book, 21 MORE Songs in 6 Days: Learn Intermediate Ukulele the Easy Way, we have a chapter on songs in minor mode. The chapter includes the following songs:

  • Wayfaring Stranger
  • Scarborough Fair
  • House of the Rising Sun
  • When Johnny Comes Marching Home

My 5th grade classes have learned six songs on the ukulele so far: three in C major and three in A minor.

Are you planning to to teach your students ukulele? We recommend starting with one chord songs. This will enable them to develop skills of rhythm, beat and tonality before learning to change chords. Check out our this method in our book, Ukulele for All.

  • Unique UFA pedagogy begins with one chord songs to give students instant success as they learn solo and ensemble skills.
  • For today's digital learners, the INTERACTIVE Practice studio - included free - offers multi-screen video lessons, play-along recordings, and more for every song in the book.
  • The informative Teacher Edition will make it easy for you to succeed with teaching ukulele.
