The ukulele is such a happy and carefree sounding instrument. It conjures up playful, postive and lighthearted feeling as well as visions of Hawaii. I really love the sound of the ukulele wanted to try writing some royalty free ukulele music tracks with my delightful tenor ukulele.
Both of these royalty free songs have been used in YouTube videos for the sticker and stationery club Lettuce Write. Their upbeat, playful sound really compliments the theme of the videos well.
Ukulele & Toy Piano Serenade
This royalty free ukulele music features a more melodic rhythm part from the ukulele. Originally the ukulele was the only instrument creating this melody but as I worked on the song I felt that it needed some support. I doubled the melody with a toy piano to create a super catchy tune. Instead of using a bass guitar I used a baritone acoustic guitar to help give the song some more weight but still keep upbeat and happy vibes.

Ukulele For My Baby
This royalty free ukulele music features a rhythmic ukulele part throughout with a catchy melody provided by a glockenspiel. Underneath this is a shuffling brushed snare beat which really carries the song along. I didn’t really want to use bass on the song so I employed my trusty baritone acoustic guitar to provide a suitable bass line.
This song has a super happy vibe that would suite project with a fun and positive mood. Maybe arts and craft videos, carefree happy videos, fun and eclectic podcasts or a game that needed an upbeat song.
