Hymns on the ukulele

Be sure not to miss the blog post where Unitarian Universalist/United Church of Christ minister, blogger and friend Adam Tierney-Eliot plans to accompany church services this summer with the ukulele.

I can see that; certainly, I can see it better than hymns accompanied by another stringed folk instrument — the psalmodikon — and yet the Norwegians endured.

Plus, thanks to the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, I have grown to love the uke.

(If you don’t know Kate Bush’s brilliant “Wuthering Heights” watch it to see how amazing the UOBG’s version is.)

But the question I have (not to Adam, who seems much more confident about this) is what mainline hymns are appropriate for the ukulele?
