Strumming My Cares Away - Ukulele & Guitar Sheet Music (Tampa Bay Ukulele Society)

Free PDF Downloads: 

Last week I found this great song for teaching to beginners. One of my students called Florence, who is in year 1 of school, was telling me about her mum's friend who performs ukulele with her ukulele duo The Mersey Belles (She is Nancy). After checking out the songs they play, and also finding inspiration for songs that I can teach, I found this gem of a cover song called "Strumming My Cares Away".

"Strumming My Cares Away" is written by the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society. With over 600 members, they are Florida's largest ukulele club. They hold regular events including workshops, performances, open mic & jam sessions. They also host the annual Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway during the month of November.

I have been in contact with the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society, who are happy for me to post this and share my sheet music version of the song. I have written up the ukulele part to include the rhythm and tab, and I have also made guitar sheet music for the song.

The song features two sections made up of beginners chords, so everyone can learn to play this song!

Structure: Intro (Chorus), [Chorus, Verse x3] then Chorus x2 with fade out.
