  32. The Weight - The Band
  33. You Can Get It If You Really Want - Jimmy Cliff

Some of the keys have been changed for ease of playing on ukulele.

I choose the last two songs and so thought I would share the videos with you. First off 'The Weight', but not performed by the Band, in this case the video is of Gillian Welch and Old Crow Medicine Show.

And now The Band version in this case they are joined by the Staples singers.

Here is Jimmy Cliff singing 'You Can Get It If You Really Want' with Jools Holland in 2003. Look out of Rico on the trombone.

I will shortly be updating the TUSC website with this book and a few other bits and pieces but in the meantime;
