Classics for Ukulele features 20 well-known classical pieces arranged for fingerpicking solo ukulele. Pieces are written for the uke tuned in the key of C (G4-C4-E4-A4). However, you do not have to play all the pieces on the instrument tuned to “C.” Play the First Movement from “Symphony No. 5” by Beethoven in D (A4-D4-F#4-B4). You will regain the original key and be able to play it with orchestral record. I have used this notation. The G string is noted an octave lower than it sounds. It is a less common notation. I chose it because the voices are more “arranged” and do not cross the dots. It allows you to better recognize which string you are to play.
Tunes include: Moonlight Sonata, Ave Maria, Ride of the Valkyries, Hungarian Dance No. 4 and many more. Music in standard notation and tab.
