Good Riddance / Flash mob stuff.

A while ago I asked for suggestions and one player mentioned Green Day.

A favourite Green Day tune of mine is “Good Riddance”. It’s a lovely catchy song that is often played at funerals. This makes it ideal for the Hull Ukulele Group. Nice mix of twiddly bits and strumming and death.

I found a nice tutorial here: http://ukuleleunderground.com/2010/09/uke-lesson-33-good-riddance-time-of-your-life/ – Once again it’s the brilliant Ukulele Underground people.

Here my version of the song: Good Riddance

I’ve uploaded a written version of the picking here: Good Riddance Picking

The flash mob we’ve been invited to is on Saturday 27th May at 2pm.

The two songs they have asked us to try and memorise (hence no printed music) are:

Click here for You are my sunshine

Ideally we’ll make a song book of favourites and songs that others won’t play, find a pub and have a strum in public.

Next meeting is tomorrow night (24th April) – 8pm usual place – The Old English Gentleman.
