Tontonremy is a great site! Old jazzie numbers with nice chord progressions. You might need to intuit a little French though. Un petit peu.
BUMS (Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society)
Richard G’s Ukulele site – lots of well written out songs (unusual choices too – thanks Suzie of Cessnock for this one). Richard Gibson is from South Australia, and known as Scorpex.

Anything below this text is old and may not work – we still need to go over it.
Chord & Strum Charts & other useful resources
Chord Chart for Baritone Ukulele (do NOT use for normal ukulele!!!)
Chordie.com a very useful site which transposes and switches between different tunings with ease!
Song not in the right key? Try this! A song transposer! (Thanks to Roy from LakeMacUkestra for this one)
Circle of Fifths – Pick a key, any key. The chords either side of it are very close relations and very useful to making up songs or deciphering songs that already exist. Very useful.
Clubs & Song Libraries
There are so many libraries of uke song books around the world. Here is a list of some of them. Added occasionally.
Dale came into LakeMac Ukestra with her Dad’s banjolins & music. This is the music. Lot of good old songs. The link is to the directory where the pdf files are kept. WARNING!!! Files are 5meg+.
Fabulous videos – they are oh so goooood!! Those Canadians sure know how to teach music! With a ukulele!
‘Billie Jean’ – James Hill’s incredible version of the Michael Jackson song.
Their very funny version of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights. More info on the UOGB at their website
