It’s not my fault… I actually like me a little Elvis now and again.
I’ve always found the chord progressions of Can’t Help Falling in Love just so simple and beautiful… I couldn’t help but record it with the ukulele (with a few modifications). Parts of the song just seemed to be asking for vocal harmonies, as well, so what the hey, once you start modifying a classic, you may as well go all the way.
The chart and MP3 are on the ukulele page, or you can give a listen here, too:
Just for giggles and grins, there is now an ukulele page. As I work them out, on this page I’ll be putting charts for the songs I play most often on the ukulele.
For starters, I’ve added “I’ll Fly Away,” a lovely gospel tune written by Albert Brumley in 1929. The version I like is by Johnny Cash, who had the incredible ability to get to the essence and heart of a song, and so that’s the version I tried to duplicate in the chart.
