Songs for Social Distancing on Ukulele

In these days of covid-19  songs played on the ukulele can help us cope with the unfamiliar practice of social distancing. It is fun to find those with a related theme and here are a couple of my favourites.

A good up-tempo song is The Police’s Don’t Stand So Close to Me.¬†Here is link to the music which is followed by a video of the Police’s version. You will need to allow for the instrumental interlude.

Don’t Stand So Close to Me

Here’s another 80s hit, So Far Away by Dire Straits with the accompanying music for you to enjoy. This one is a bit harder with the riff.

So Far Away

The song music links in this post are in different keys from the original versions, so you won’t be able to play along with the videos, which are included to demonstrate the arrangements of these songs (and because they are so good). You might have to practice for a while to get the right feel, but I’m sure that you are all up for the challenge.

Have fun, stay well and keep on strumming.
