Sons of Liberty – Spirit of the Times EP

Release date: December 22, 2011

Hello friends, I’m proud to present you with the SOL “Spirit of the Times” 5-track-EP which is now ready for release. It will only be available on iTunes, and many other digital channels, as we have chosen to not involve a record label for now. We wanted to do this directly from us to you. It is my sincere hope that this EP will continue to spread brushfires of liberty in the minds of people from all corners of the globe. I wish I would have had time to write, record, and mix more songs, but with the intense and demanding schedule that Iced Earth is requiring from me, this is the best I could do. On this recording, I was once again joined by Jim Morris (guitar solos, backing vocals) and Ruben Drake (bass guitar). Jim and I programmed the drums in order to keep recording costs down. As you know, SOL is about the message and the idea, but there are costs involved to keep it going. Though I still encourage you to make copies and pass them out to everyone you can, there will not be a free download available this time around. Due to my recording and touring schedule with Iced Earth, I have not been as present as I would like to be in the cause for liberty. Please know that I stand with all of you freedom fighters in spirit, regardless of what race you are, what language you speak, or which God you choose, or not choose, to worship. I will be there when duty calls, count on it. The free human spirit is rising all over the planet. I’ve been fortunate enough in my travels to speak with some amazing and very awake people in the last few years, and I can honestly and gladly state, that we are having an effect. Continue to educate yourselves, think for yourselves, use your power of discernment, and most importantly; be there for each other. Good people all over the world can band together and make this a world of peace and prosperity for all of its inhabitants if only we truly connect with the power and will of the free human spirit. Thanks so much for supporting the cause! In Liberty, Jon Schaffer

6/23/11 – Jon Schaffer Announces New Sons of Liberty Release

Jon Schaffer revealed he will release a 5-song Sons of Liberty EP in early December. Tentatively titled Molon Labe (Greek for “come and get it”), the EP will feature these tracks:

  1. Alive
  2. Spirit of the Times
  3. Molon Labe
  4. Mind Control
  5. Full Spectrum Dominance

According to Schaffer, the writing and recording sessions for the new Iced Earth album were so fruitful that he was able to write and will soon record five non-Iced Earth songs, all of which will appear on the new Sons of Liberty EP. “I would have loved to have done a full-length Sons of Liberty album,” Schaffer said. “But Iced Earth takes precedence and likely will for at least the next year of recording, mixing, and then criss-crossing the globe on our 2011-2012 World Tour.” The format for Molon Labe has not been decided. It may be a physical CD available via mail-order only. Or it may be a digital download. Or both. For more information, “Like” the official Sons of Liberty Facebook page and/or return often to this web site.

4/8/11 – THE BRUSH-FIRES ARE SPREADING!

4/6/11 – ATTENTION ALL PATRIOTS!

This 100% cotton t-shirt is 100% made in the U.S.A. So it’s the real deal, as grassroots as it gets. Best of all, it sports an image that immediately identifies you as a true-blue Patriot, yet is so tasteful that you can wear it virtually anywhere.

Olive The color is Olive, as voted on and picked by fans on the Sons of Liberty Facebook page. Sizes are M, L, XL, XXL, and XXXL. The t-shirts are available now and are ready to ship. So, become a member of the Tyranny Response Team and order your t-shirt today!

NOTE: Because it’s made in the U.S., we have to charge $3 more per shirt to cover the increased costs involved. But we thought that was a small price to pay to get a shirt of this quality, made right here in America. Also, the price for sizes XXL and XXXL is $5 more per shirt.

The themes of Brush-Fires of the Mind, the album released by Schaffer’s Sons of Liberty solo project, will be the topic of discussion on Napolitano’s show, which addresses the loss of liberty and blatant violations of the U.S. Constitution by America’s own government.

Andrew Napolitano is a former New Jersey Superior Court Judge, and a political and legal analyst for Fox News Channel. Judge Napolitano has written three books: Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks Its Own Laws; a New York Times bestseller, The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land; and A Nation of Sheep.

“Eddie and I go way back,” Schaffer said. “He’s one of the best interviewers in the business, and his knowledge of music is encyclopedic. So I’m looking forward to sitting across from him in his studio.”

Eddie is currently heard on two national radio shows and seen on VH1 Classic and MSG Networks. He has also appeared on MTV several times and on Fox News Channel, worked as a freelance music journalist, boxing ring announcer, and MC for various concerts and rock events around the USA.

The ukulele is a fun, upbeat instrument that is perfect for beginners because it’s easy to learn and doesn’t cost much to get an ukulele kits. But where do you start? This blog post will provide you with a list of easy rock ukulele songs for beginners. 

These songs are simple, so you can focus on learning the basics. Start with one of these songs, and you’ll be playing like a pro in no time.

Easy Rock Ukulele Songs For Beginners

Rock Ukulele Songs

“Paint it Black” – By The Rolling Stones.

Chords used: A, B, Bm, D, Em, G.

The song “Paint it Black” by The Rolling Stones has an incredible sound that can only be achieved with the help of Brian Jones’ iconic sitar playing. The song sounds fantastic with ukulele accompaniment, but it’s not just for beginners. 

The repeated chords make this an easy melody that can be learned quickly by anyone who wants to play their favorite tunes on the guitar or bassoon – even if you’re a pro.

Paint it Black

“Eleanor Rigby” – By The Beatles 

Chords used: C, Em, Em7, Em6.

It tells the tragic story of early death and features a distinctive instrument – in this case, rather than sitars. However, it’s not any less suited for being played on ukuleles. 

The haunting chords bring out one side to these guitars that don’t get enough press. They should be explored more deeply because they give us insight into how dark we can potentially become when faced with great loss or pain.

“Space Oddity” – By David Bowie 

Chords used: Bb, A, Am, C, D, E, Em, F, Fm, G.

The astronaut in this ballad faces technical difficulties, but luckily for them, there will always be Earth below them as their home base. 

With its melancholy chords that create an atmosphere reminiscent of when we were children listening to our parents tell us scary stories around light-up trees on Christmas Eve night. It’s nearly impossible not to have emotion while playing this song.

“Maggie May” – By Rod Stewart 

Chords used: A, D, Em, Gbm, G

One of the most iconic rock songs is “Maggie May.” The lyrics speak about a tragic yet optimistic protagonist who has left his lover after being ignored by her time and again. 

Musically, it’s fast-paced with upbeat instrumentals to get you in a good mood no matter what kind of situation life throws at you. You can even play its famous mandolin solo on a ukulele if that sounds like your thing.

“Wish You Were Here” – By Pink Floyd 

Chords used: A, Am, C, D, Em, G.

The iconic band Pink Floyd is known for its experimentation and otherworldly sound. However, in the song “Wish You Were Here,” listeners can find a sense of peace that will resonate with them no matter what mood they are in.

Wish You Were Here

“Should I Stay or Should I Go” – By The Clash 

Chords used: D, G, F, A

“Should I Stay or Should I Go,” by The Clash, is a classic piece of guitar rock that has inspired many musicians. 

Now you can play the ukulele version, and your audience will be on their feet with anthems from Twenty One Pilots in no time.

“Come As You Are” – By Nirvana 

Chords: A, C, D, Em, G

If you need to relax, play “Come As You Are” by Nirvana. The song will have a calming effect on your body and soul even if the lyrics are about tolerance, making it perfect for rainy mornings or laid-back nights at home.

“Friday I’m In Love” – By The Cure 

Chords: Am, C, F, G

“Friday I’m In Love ” is a track from The Cure’s album Disintegration, and it seems as if they were to make this song for ukuleles. It has become one of their most popular singles, with chords that you can figure out within minutes! 

It will be a piece of perfect background music for cherry afternoons.

Conclusion

The rock ukulele songs for beginners are a great resource for anyone who wants to learn ukulele and has no clue where to start. You won’t regret getting started with these fun songs.
