Friday Links

The TatamimatsDark Side of the Uke is causing a big stir. It may be because I’m not a Floyd fan, but I can’t see what the fuss is about.

Robot crotches are confusing.

Photographic proof that ukuleles make you happy on nerd’s eye view.

AA Gill is a twunt. But you probably knew that already.

A Quick Question

When I’m posting, I’ll quite often put the chords in a pdf and put a short bit of tab – an intro, a solo, a riff – in the post itself. Does anyone find this confusing/annoying? On my Julien Doré post some of the comments in French seem not to realise the tab for the outro is right in front of them (I think that’s what they’re saying – I don’t speak French). Is it a language barrier problem or is everyone baffled?

Got something to say?
