Ultimate Uke, Bendy Uker: Friday Ukulelinks

Ultimate Ukulele is a new ukulele tab and chord site from Uke Hunt friend Joe. Tunes already up include Coldplay’s Life In Technicolour, The Killers’ Mr. Brightside and Pacman.

It looks like I might have overestimated people’s ingenuity when it comes to finding things. If you see a message on any posts telling you something that seems blindingly obvious, it should disappear after you’ve looked at a few pages. It’s what Seth Godin would do (if he played the ukulele).

Humble Uker alerts us to Tomas Kubinek who can do strangely erotic things whilst playing the ukulele.

Lineup for the 2008 New Zealand Ukulele Festival announced.

Come back here with my name, Uke Hunts! (Thanks to Lonna for spotting that).

Steven Sproat will be workshopping at the Irish Ukulele get together.

On the MP3 blogs: Old Blue Bus has a track from Mad Tea Party and Culture Bully has Suzanne Vallie.

If music were sport.

    overestimated people’s ingenuity…

    Clicking on things is hard!

    You mean I’m supposed to click the red words?

    Friday Ukulelinks just got much more interesting!

    John: You deserve a medal for resisting the temptation to batter him around the head and run off with it.

    Lonna and Minamin: I do sometimes wonder how some people managed to switch their computer on.

    “I do sometimes wonder how some people managed to switch their computer on.”

    That comment makes it obvious you’ve never worked in tech support.

    Lawsy. Some people’s kids.

    I hope the Yahoo Answers person doesn’t feel so alone; sometimes when there is a video for a song I get bewildered and think the link for the chords or tab is a link to the youtube page for the video.

    I love the last link!

    Al:

    Please update Tomas Kubinek’s skills from eRotic to eXotic. I don’t want to give the wrong impression.

    Hobbit: I’ve been appointed as the family tech support. Full time job.

    Anne: Every new person should get a message telling them how to get the tabs from now on. Hopefully that’ll solve the problem.

    The last link is a good one. It got me thinking. For the most part, I’m glad music is a more outsider pursuit than sport. Although, “The more musically inclined would routinely play in different bands in different genres,” sounds like a good idea to me.

    Jeff: We all view the world in our own ways.

    “The more musically inclined would routinely play in different bands in different genres,”

    Sounds like Bela Fleck.

Got something to say?
