I Don’t Want To Live On The Moon – Sesame Street Ukulele

I Don’t Want To Live On The Moon for Solo Ukulele

What a lovely, lovely song. This piece was written by Jeff Moss. You should check out Jeff Moss. Any Sesame Street fan will be familiar with his most popular tune, ‘Rubbie Duckie’, a song about the plight of eastern European immigrants during the cold war. Classic. However, to me, I Don’t Want To Live on the Moon is the pinnacle of his writing. Sadly he’s no longer with us. Here’s to Jeff Moss.

What This Song Can Teach You – 

  • Play in the key of C or G. You choose.
  • Play a Jeff Moss classic. That guy is awesome.
  • Make further use of the campanella style .
  • Play a predictable but still fun chord sequence.

I couldn’t decide on the key here so I’ve done it in C and G, with the solo being in F. The lead versions are done in a standard way. No campanella or anything so why not try these on your baritone uke? The solo version is where it’s at though. Check out that video for the performance. I don’t play it exactly as tabbed but I never do. Tabs are a guide man. Get the feel of the piece then see what happens dude.

You’ll want to get used to that F shape. Especially as I move up to the 5th fret to form a Bb. Dastardly chord that one. There’s some interesting structure in this piece. 1st and 2nd time bars, codas; the lot. Hopefully you’ll be ok with these. If not, get a degree in music or bumble your way through and hope for the best. I prefer the latter. Enjoy!
