The Saturday UkeTube

Far too many videos this week. A couple of Hawaiian masters, a ukulele/melodica cover of Beck, GUGUG, a bit of English folk music, loads of other stuff. Click More to see them all.

Ohta-San – Where Is My Love Tonight

The Be Arthurs – Think I’m In Love

Carl Ray Villaverde – Tears In Heaven

Working on a tab of this one already. You can find a very early version in the Rag Bag.

WS64 – Mr Sandman

Snake Suspenderz – Dr Hokum & Mr Jive

puzzmod – Water of Tyne

I love a bit of traditional English folk music. I wish more people sang like this.

Mattiniero – The Whistling Ukulele Troubadour

Jules – Jolene

I think Jools Holland would be much improved if it was filmed by a team of five year olds. Sound certainly would.

GUGUG – Destination Venus

The Jack Lords – 6 Months on a Leaky Boat

Watch the full session on MUD.

The Re-Entrants – Tainted Love

    Hi Al!

    You’re welcome, Thomas. I loved the performance. Great whistling.

    Phil from the Re-entrants here – thanks for posting ‘Tainted Love’. Maduke, the way we play it, the chords are Dm, F, Bb, F (then add the G note on the 3rd fret of the second string, then take it off again to complete the riff!). The lead in to the chorus if D (major this time), F , Bb, Gm.
    Keep on uking!

    You’re welcome, Phil. So, spill the secret, how did you manage to get on the first page when you search for ‘ukulele’ on YouTube?

  12. Phil Doleman February 20th, 2008 2:08 pm

    I wish I new! We posted loads of videos, none of which went over 1000 views in several months, then suddenly this one went crazy. 14,000 views within a couple of weeks and front page on you Tube! It’s a mystery to me…

    i googled cielito lindo on uke and came to this site, can’t see to find the “show more button” to access it- anybody know where I could find chords for this beautiful song?

    Does anyone have the tabs/chords and strum pattern for Jolene? Beginner here and would love to add this to my small/currently nonexistent repertoire.

Got something to say?
