Silent Night

On Christmas Eve in 1818
A blizzard stranded the tiny village of Ogledorf
Nestled in the Austrian mountains
That same day the people of St. Nicholas’ church found their organ broken
So the priest and organist began composing a song that could be sung without
An organ yet beautiful enough to express their Christmas joy
All day and all night long they worked
And at midnight the gentle carol Silent Night was born
The pure clear tones echoed through the hills
And the world has been captured by the beauty of that simple song ever since.
Silent Night
Holy Night
All is calm
All is bright
Round yon virgin
Mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent Night
Holy Night
Shepeards pray at the sight
Glory streams from heaven afar
Heavenly ? sing hallelujah
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born
Silent Night
Holy Night
All is calm
And all is bright
Round yon virgin
Mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent Night
Holy Night
Sleep in heavenly peace

You got it all… Jets

I, I was a game he would play
He brought the clouds to my day
Then like a ray of light
You came my way one night
Just one look and I knew

You would make everything clear
Make all the clouds disappear
Don’t you know, don’t you know

You got it all over him
You got me over him
Honey it’s true
There’s just you

You must have been heaven sent
Hearing me call you went
Out on a limb
And you’re all that he’s not
Just look what I got
Cause you got it all
Over him

No, don’t let him worry you so
Once I met you I let go
Oh you can surely see
You’re so much more to me
Just one look and I knew
You would make everything clear
Make all the clouds disappear
You’re better than all the rest
Who do I love the best
Don’t you know, don’t you know

You got it all over him
You got me over him
Honey it’s true
There’s just you
You must have been heaven sent
Hearing me call you went
Out on a limb
And you’re all that he’s not
Just look what I got
Cause you got it all
All over him
(You got it all over him,
You got me over him)

Honey it’s true there’s just you
You must have been heaven sent
Hearing me call you went
Out on a limb

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
“Rudolph, with your nose so bright
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history”
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to

Loosening the Keys – An introduction to slack-key-style ukulele – Ukulele

Source: Loosening the Keys – An introduction to slack-key-style ukulele – Ukulele

 

In 1832, Hawaiian King Kamehameha III hired Spanish and Mexican cowboys to teach Hawaiians how to deal with cattle. These vaqueros brought guitars to Hawaii and the natives developed their own fingerpicking style that incorporated Hawaiian rhythms and harmonies and magically evoked the natural beauty of the islands.

The music that the locals played became known as ki ho’alu (translating loosely as “loosen the key”), after the slack key, or lowered open tunings, they preferred. Since slack-key guitar involves an alternating thumb-bass picking style, many musicologists think it influenced African-American blues guitarists. Others say that some Hawaiians put open-tuned guitars on their laps and used a slide, giving birth to the steel guitar!

What,” you ask, “retune my uke? I’ll have to learn to play all over again!” Don’t panic—you’ll only retune one string. The first string (A) goes down a major second (the equivalent of two frets) to G, giving you an open C chord: G C E G. This is the ukulele version of the Taro Patch tuning, the most popular of the many open tunings used by slack-key guitarists. (On guitar, it’s D G D G B D, low to high, like the Delta blues guitarists’ open-G tuning.)
