Tom S, just curious - how is that bass uke tuned? Is it EADG?
Yep, exactly like a normal bass or the bottom four strings of a regular guitar. Makes it very easy to learn.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Thanks. My baritone uke is tuned like the upper 4 strings on a guitar (DGBE). With my other ukes tuned GCEA, my plectrum banjo tuned CBGD and my guitars tuned EADGBE, this would be a real mind bender. I rely on muscle memory but if, for example, I've been playing a guitar most of the week, I occasionally find myself playing 'wrong' chords when I get to weekly ukulele practice  :-[ I need to quit playing guitar a week before our upcoming uke concert.

When I am at a meetup and they are playing a song I am not familiar with I get thrown when the sheet music only lists the chord name and not the picture. When it says D often times I play a G instead. No one else can hear I am wrong so it doesn't bother me. I have made a zillion mistakes on stage so I am used to it.

Few lead sheets I use, whether they belong to the band, my own arrangements, or ones shared by others at a meet, have chord diagrams. The only time we've used them is when there's a chord or two that band members have not seen or learned.

Funnily enough, I need to sing to be able to play. In the cases where, for example, our MD greys out lyrics on an instrument breakout, I add the lyrics back so I can at least sing to myself; Then I can play the tune.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

What is really bad is when there is both the chord name and diagram and I still get it wrong. However I was listening to some Beatles live songs this afternoon and it is amazing how many mistakes they made. Of course no monitors and screaming fans makes playing even more difficult. John was so bad at remembering lyrics, especially in 1965 right after they discovered pot.

The funny thing is he was always bad at remembering lyrics. Some of the early songs have some lyrical errors. But in 1965 he got really bad at remembering lyrics and I did not put two and two together until recently. Especially Help. He never even came close to getting it right. Then on the rooftop concert in the film Let It Be he had a guy holding up lyrics printed out for him. He was wearing his glasses for the concert so he could see the lyrics.

Thank you for posting that Tom.

Enjoyed it.  And I learned something about the Beatles and John Lennon.  He could write lyrics, just couldn't remember them when performing!

Thanks Ron. Here is a typical Lennon performance in 1965. He only screws up the lyrics twice in one song.

Interesting. I wonder how many folks in the audience caught his goofs, or even cared. I suspect that many were screaming too loud to even hear. I suppose that, if you're a Beatle, you can get away with a lot of this stuff.


At one of our concerts, one of the guitarists had a vocal solo, backed by the band, and he forgot the lyrics to one of the verses. I immediately realized and started singing. I wasn't mic'd, but my booming voice carried, and the entire band joined in singing the song. The soloist kept playing his guitar. I have no idea how it sounded to the audience, but they enthusiastically applauded at the end. Maybe they were being polite, but nobody boo'd  ;D

I saw them live twice, in 1965 at the Hollywood Bowl and in 1966 at Dodger Stadium. If a jet plane would have flown low over the stadium I doubt it would have been heard. They did do Help at the Hollywood Bowl. What I remember the most about the Hollywood Bowl was before the concert began Neil Aspinall, the Beatles roadie, came out on stage and sat at the drums and tapped a few as a sound check. The audience booed him for daring to sit at Ringo's drums. Of course he was the guy who set the drums up.
