Uke 'An Play Led Zeppelin

If you put in one part Sorceror, one part Thunder, one part Groove, one Lemon and one part Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, what do you get?

Uke 'An Play Led Zeppelin, of course! In June 2012, Alfred Music Publishing released this 93-page book as part of its "Uke 'An Play" series, which also allows you to play like The Rolling Stones and Jimmy Buffet. It is the result of over 2 years of research and writing.

Included songs are Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Black Dog, Communication Breakdown, D'yer Mak'er, Dancing Days, Good Times Bad Times, Houses of the Holy, Immigrant Song, In the Evening, Kashmir, Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman), The Ocean, Over the Hills and Far Away, Rock and Roll, Stairway to Heaven and Whole Lotta Love.

One might think that this release may have a limited target audience since it is, of course, tablature arranged for ukulele, however that is so much far from the truth, it's insane.

You can be a Youtube star, you can play for your company christmas parties, put your infant children to sleep, be nostalgic to your Zeppelin roots, be the next ukulele virtuoso, etc. The possibilities are endless.

I'll admit that I was a bit hesitant when this arrived at my doorstep. I tuned up my 1960s Lindell soprano uke, symbolically put on my black Cosmic outfit and played along to Rock And Roll, daydreaming that the lights came on stage and I was standing there in front of 25,000 people at Madison Square Garden.

It was a pure pleasure playing with Led Zeppelin songs and Uke 'An Play Led Zeppelin. I can't hardly wait to see which band gets released next in their series.
