any mumford and sons fans out there?

A kid at school has requested a m&s song for recorder or ukulele. Any suggestions?

What would be good for a 10 year old to sing or play?


  1. Most of them are just four chords (three majors and a minor) so easy on the uke, with rhythms a bit challenging to keep them interested. The words tend to be a bit "adult". "Awake my Soul" might be OK. "Winter Winds" is very pretty and you could adapt the horn part for recorders but might need to edit the words a little or cut some out.

  2. Excellent. Thanks. I've worked it out. We'll play it in C.

    Verse = C G Am F (x4)
    Ch = F C F G

    Easy and pretty.
