Alfred Music, a longstanding ukulele partner for Make Music Day, is doubling down on its fretted instrument offerings in 2016!
As part of the annual Mass Appeal series, Alfred Music is bringing together thousands of guitarists to rock out for Make Music Day. In 24 cities, guitarists of all levels will come out and play along in a massive strumming crowd. Free songbooks will be distributed to all, so that everyone can play along.
This year’s songs will be “I Saw Her Standing There” (The Beatles), “The Kids Are Alright” (The Who), “Teach Your Children” (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), “Danny’s Song” (Kenny Loggins), “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” (Aerosmith), and “With Arms Wide Open” (Creed).
In addition, Alfred Music is providing free copies of their book “It’s Ukulele Time” at more than 30 Mass Appeal Ukulele events, giving everyone a set of classic songs to play together.
