In the Night Garden

In the Night Garden (Tab)

In the Night Garden (midi)

It’s just my luck that the biggest ukulele news of last year came during Uke Hunt’s Christmas hiatus. It was revealed that the ukulele player with Liverpudlian slow-core octet Ella Guru Nick Kellington was spending his days playing Iggle Piggle from the kids’ TV show In The Night Garden. It’s probably even more surprising than Tinky Winky of the Teletubbies being fired for being too gay and being unmasked as a comedian whose website you have to be 18 to enter.

In honour of Nick Kellington, I’m putting up a tab I did of the main theme of In the Night Garden. Yes, I already had one done. I’ve tabbed out the main theme and kept the tab as simple as possible in case there are any kids out there wanting to play it. The arrangement is in two parts: the chords and the melody. The chords can be played as simply as you like. They’d work well with just one strum at each chord change.

    Hey, thanks for asking. Class was great and they are preparing for their first concert performance next week – 30 7yr olds! All full of ‘Merrily’ and ‘Polly Wolly Doodle!’ Trust me its a great way to start a Monday morning!
    And they recognised the tune really quick, so well done and another great job.

    Now, what about that tab to ‘Whos gonna drive you home’ as featured on these wonderful pages a while back??

    Take care..

    I would. Except… erm… I have no idea what you’re talking about. I think my brain is turning to mush.
