Guitar and Ukulele Tabs for Where Have All the Flowers Gone? (Pete Seeger)

If I had to choose one song which I thought best exemplified great songwriting, I might well choose Where Have All the Flowers Gone? by Pete Seeger.

It is a simple song to learn or teach for chords and catchy tune. Not a lot of vocal range or skills required. One true verse with a few interchangeable parts. Very meaningful lyrics with a lot of symbolism to say more than just words can say. Very vivid imagery. Tells a story based on a simple concept and closes it all off. Works great with just the singing, one instrument, without drums, or any number of instruments, and in pretty much any style you’d like to perform it. Sounds even better performed in a group. I’m not sure what else you’d want in a song.

My tabbed version is closest to the version by the Kingston Trio in the video below (minus all the picking as I try to keep things simple).

Otherwise, I’d have posted a version sung by Pete Seeger himself like this one

This one by Peter, Paul and Mary, with instructions to the audience as they sing it is nice, too.

I hope you will give the song a try if you haven’t already played it.

These tabs all fit on one page to avoid the inconvenience of page turns. However, the letter size tabs (8.5″ x 11″) may be too small for your eyes. If so, you can either enlarge to tabloid size (11″ x 17″) using an automatic enlarge feature on many photocopiers, or download the tabloid sized versions for printing. The tabloid size tabs can be inserted into a typical letter sized binder on the 11″ size, and folded almost in half to fit. You just open each tab to use it.

Printable Where the Wild Things Are Placemats (12″ x 18″) and Photos (6″ x 4″)

I found some of these large graphics from the movie and children’s book Where the Wild Things Are. I enhanced them with more colour and resolution to make some wallpapers. However, some of the graphics were big enough I though I could enhance them to a size big enough to be a pretty good sized picture, but I just didn’t want to make some big pictures. That’s when I had the idea of placemats.

This was stuff for kids, as well as adults, but the original was a children’s book kids loved, so I thought, wouldn’t they love it if they had placemats of it?

Some pictures for stuff they had, whether to put on the size of their pencil cases or notebooks, or in their room, wouldn’t hurt either.

So here it all is below… with a banner 28″ long to boot!

These are not official merchandise so please do NOT sell them… just make them for your own family fun.

The photos you can just print at your typical photo machine.

There are 7 placemats so plenty for the kids. They are the typical 12″ x 18″ in size, but you can get that printed at a Wal-mart or some other place. Make sure you get them heavily laminated, though. If you’re going to use it as a place mat, it’s going to take a lot of beating, and the prints will cost you something like $11 in Canada, plus tax, so do laminate them well.

Otherwise, just print it as a big print for your kids’ room… or yours. 🙂

I also have Where the Wild Things Are wallpapers for monitors and backgrounds for iPhones, Palm Pre and Blackberry Bold 9000s.

Enjoy!
