Hey, everybody, it’s Hallie from the LLC with another post about the UKULELE ARMY. If you haven’t heard about the Ukulele Army, here’s the deal: I’ll be uploading videos every week where fans of the show can teach themselves to play the songs from the show… on the ukulele. So, obviously, I encourage everyone to get their mitts on a uke and play along! But, really, ALL instruments are welcome in the Army. So if you really want to use these videos to learn the songs on another instrument, that’s cool, too.
This week, we are kicking it into high gear with TWO lessons, which I’ve uploaded to the TCGS You Tube channel. The first goes over some ukulele basics to get you started, and the second teaches a couple chords and a really simple song using those chords.
And here’s the best part: I wanna see how everybody’s progressing! So once you know the first song, consider posting a video of yourself playing it. The best place to post it is in the UKULELE ARMY thread on the TCGS message board. Don’t be shy, we’re all terrible at this point, haha. If you don’t feel comfortable posting a video, no worries; but if you’re feeling brave, DO IT! If you can play and sing at the same time, post that! If all you can do is play the song with no singing, post that! If all you can do is hold the ukulele and talk about how bad you are at it, post that! Doesn’t matter… just show the rest of the Army how you’re doing. We’re all in it together.
Thanks so much to everyone who’s accepting the mission! Ukulele Army, CHARGE!
This week we released two lessons! Here are some of the basics of Ukuleleing - then you can head over to Part Two to learn your first song “I’M GOING TO LEARN TO PLAY THE UKULELE MOTHERFUCKER!”
Hey, everybody! Hallie from the LLC here. One of the things I love about TCGS is how interactive it is, how involved the fans are, and how how many friends we’ve all made through the show because of this. I was thinking about the music on the show, and wishing there was a way for fans to get involved in that, too. Here’s what I’ve come up with: THE UKULELE ARMY.
I just bought my first ukulele and am going to start teaching myself songs from the show on it. I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to get TCGS fans in on the action; I’ll be learning the songs from scratch, and you can learn along with me! I’ll be uploading videos every week that will teach basic chords and eventually whole songs… hits like “The Chris Gethard Show Theme Song”, “Keep It Calsteady”, “Jerkface”, “Dan Klein’s Song”, and more! We’ll also learn some original songs, One Direction songs…. anything that seems fun and easy.
Obviously, I’ll be teaching the songs on ukulele; and I encourage anyone that’s interested to get one, so they can join me on this quest. Ukuleles are fun, and cheap, and easy to transport. But I guess these videos could really be used to learn TCGS songs on any instrument! I’ll be doing the ukulele fingering, but I’ll be going over the chord structure for all the songs… If you’d like to use the videos to teach yourself the songs on guitar, banjo, recorder, accordion, or whatever— be my guest! As long as you already know some basic chords on that instrument, or are willing to teach yourself, you should be able to follow along. So, while I really encourage everyone to pick up THE ALMIGHTY UKULELE, all instruments are welcome in the Ukulele Army.
We’ll figure out in the coming months how this will work in the context of the show… there may be certain songs that everyone is always invited to play along with from the audience (or at home!). Maybe we’ll invite the whole Army on stage to perform a song from time to time… we can really make this whatever we want it to be, and I’m open to suggestions about how to incorporate this into the show every week.
Okay, so, first things first… you need to get a ukulele! Ukulele Army will kick into high gear next week with our first lesson where we will start learning The Chris Gethard Show theme song. DO IT! I’m amped :)
Stellan started calling TCGS a few months back all the way from Sweden, and very quickly became one our favorite personalities on the show. Here he is in the first episode of his web exclusive segment. Check it!
Plucked from 9/10/2001, Bananaman was feeling pretty optimistic and bright about America’s future when he appeared on last week’s edition of Keeper & Company. We accidentally sent him back to 9/12/2001 - and here’s his reaction upon reading the news.
Someone is going to need a hug.
Sandwich or Not a Sandwich. A Wrap.
At the Gethard Show for last week’s annual Sandwich Night! I made this rap (Wrap!) video telling people whether things are sandwiches or not sandwiches.
Also. Bill Pullman.
Valuable information for those who may be confused.

A few weeks back we held a film festival competition where the winner would receive a box full of empty cans. Our good friend STELLAN just got them in Sweden, and… Well, you’ll see.
