Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Ukulele Arrangement -- Melody Only -- Key of F
(Complete lyrics at the bottom of this page)

If you compare the melody below to the melody for the same song in the tutorial on Page 3 of “How to Read Ukulele Tablature” you’ll notice that the melody notes are the same but I double-timed the melody here, doubling the time value of all of the notes. It could be done either way really but I’m doing it this way to show how I came up with the fingerpicking arrangement I recorded. It gives the song a nice little bounce.

The recording below is of the more advanced fingerstyle arrangement.

 

 

Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are.

When the blazing sun is gone, When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light, Twinkle, twinkle, all the night,
Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are.
 

(The following two verses are not included on the MP3.)

Then the traveler in the dark, Thanks you for your tiny spark;
He could not see where to go, If you did not twinkle so,
Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are.

In the dark blue sky you keep, While you through my window peep,
And you never shut your eyes, Till the sun is in the sky.
Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are.
