A softcover songbook which fuses Civil War-era tunes with the sound of the tropics.
The Hawaiian ukulele can be traced back to the post-Civil War era in 1879, but with the Songs of the Civil War for Ukulele songbook you'll get to merge the beloved uke with a catalog of inspirational, wartime tunes that predate it. These 25 songs are famous for boosting morale, championing causes, pulling on heartstrings, or giving impetus to battle. The collection includes "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Dixie" and many more – all in standard C tuning, with notation, tablature and accompanying lyrics. The book also includes notes on the songs and historical commentary, and a handy chord chart!
