A Few New Ones

Here are a few ones I was playing on the piano for practice the other day and thought they would make good additions to the ever expanding collection. 

Don't forget to check us out (and follow😇) on Moroni's Uke Facebook

My youngest daughter, who is 2, has some fun words in this songs.  "The Ice man built his house... and the rains came down and the puddies comin up!"  Not sure what puddies are...puddles?
The Wise Man and the Foolish Man

And a few more....
Search, Ponder, and Pray
Children All over the World ... such an international song!

thanks and as always, report any busted links

Mutual Theme Request

Hey all,
Here is the latest request.  i took a few liberties figuring this out for uke.  i switched a couple of octaves, i made some chord accompaniment , etc.... i hope you like it.  it is quite a nice tune.  It might be best to have the uke do a chord accompaniment as opposed to have it pick the melody.  There is a youtube version that is at the link ( to get a good pattern going for strumming.  I suggest really accentuating the first beat of each measure to match the pattern online (it seems to have a guitar or two or three playing chords).

Big or Small

Thanks to Jeneva Putnam for the request!

And dont forget to link up with us at facebook!

Probably the Best Song

This song is one of the most touching songs out there.  My kids learned it in primary a few years back and it blew me away!  It was hard to hear and not get a little choked up.  And I dont cry at the drop of a hat....ask my wife, she laments my lack of tearing at special events....weddings, baby births, etc....

Gethsemane is a great tune!   Hope you like it.



Book of Mormon Stories

This song has a few notes that a typical Uke cant get so it is transposed up 1/2 a step.  The chords are also changed from the original.  (The hands signals are not included).

So it wont accompany well if you are using the sheet music from the Childrens Songbook.

Book of Mormon Stories

Also, my sister and I started a facebook page for Ukes and LDS music.  So, if you want, you can follow and find out if new stuff is coming.  I think I am going to try to do weekly songs.

Keep those requests coming!

If the Savior Stood Beside Me

UkeMomFriend gave a nice request that was quite challenging to make work in certain ukulele forms.  Phew!  I am glad to be done with this one.

There are some "b" notes in there that I could not transpose well, so please just ignore them, play a middle "c" or just tranpose up one note in your heads on the if!

This song was written by Sally DeFord.  I found this version in the New Era in 2007.

If the Savior Stood Beside Me

have fun

Requested Song

This is a fun song, requested by Marie.  I hope you like it.  I did change some of the notes and chords to better fit a Uke.  The song is by Shawna Edwards. She also did that Miracle song, which is super sweet.

Peace in Christ

Here is the mutual theme for 2018.  i took two liberties (there were some low b flats that i also added an octave higher so they could be ignored or played 1 octave up).

Also, the interludes have some tricky fingering for chords, so alternatively, one could just strum the chords, as they are very similar notes,....just 1 octave lower and a bit least for my fat fingers!  i know my uke sounds a bit funny at the higher frets.

Hope you enjoy it.

Peace in Christ
