I would like to share with you two renditions of O Canada I have arranged for ukulele. One of them is in C tuning high G and one is in D tuning low A.
There are likely still a couple of mistakes in there. I have been working on it for a while but it was only today I decided to push through and get it ready for Canada Day even with the rough spots. The recording is meant only to give an idea of what it sounds like. I did not have the time to create a truly polished performance and it is also a bit difficult to switch between playing C tuning and D tuning without getting a little confused! My printer has also ceased working so I wasn't able to print this for myself. Instead of looking at it all at once, had to "splice" the recording when my iPad would need adjusting to zoom in on the next phrase.
The reason both are in the key of D is that I find it to be closest to the most common key of Eb. At least I think Eb is the most common and D is only a semi-tone away. I considered G and F but some of the higher notes seem to get a little too high for many people. I decided against transposing it down to C for C tuners because that key just doesn't do it for me for O Canada. Maybe it's just me!
C tuning is in the left ear and D tuning is in the right ear.
