Never Mind The Reindeer Songbook

A songbook of Carols, Songs and Music for Winter, Christmas and New Year.

A Christmas gift to you.

Here’s a songbook of Carols, Songs and Music for Winter, Christmas and New Year.

You can download it for free because George owns the copyright and is offering the download as a present to everyone this year.

The music includes transcriptions of all the tracks on “Never Mind The Reindeer”, the Christmas album released by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

The book is an A4 PDF with 36 pieces of music and some text.
The PDF book contains:  
* music notation of all the melodies,
* ukulele tablature for the melodies (GCEA tuning),
* chord names,
* chord windows (GCEA tuning)
* all the lyrics.

A lot of people are struggling at this time of year. A lot of people have had no work; the covid restrictions are making a lot of people feel under pressure; it’s cold, and it looks as if the normal Christmas cheer might be in short supply this year. And so…….

If you wish, take this as a Christmas gift from the Orchestra to you. You don’t have to be a christian to sing Christmas carols, and the melodies are all pretty good.

If you are solvent, well-heeled or not struggling, you could always consider making a donation to the Orchestra (which hasn’t done any gigs since February). That’s entirely up to you. How much is a donation? What’s a songbook with 36 pieces in it worth these days?

But don’t feel bad if can’t because you’re skint, or in difficulties or even if you’re a mean old Scrooge! Doesn’t matter. Have a present from us anyway. We can all make the world a better place by saying “Wotcher Mate” (What Cheer, it means).
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, to you. From us.
