Laurel and Hardy Theme (Tab)

Laurel and Hardy Theme (Dance of the Cuckoos) (Tab)

After Steve sent me this slightly worrying video, I decided this is perfect for the ukulele. It’s simple to play, works perfectly on the uke and I’ve been strumming it the whole time.

I’m using D-tuning in the video, but C-tuning will work fine. The D-tuning does add a bit of plinky-plonky to it though.

    I’m unsatisfied. I would prefer you create a new post twice a day. Thank you.

    If you click “Steve” it takes you to

    The “Steve” link seems to be working now.

    Sebi: Glad you like it.

    alec: Sod off and thanks respectively ;)

    Acilius: Yup, fixed it.


    1) Well, you inspired it.
    2) My legs aren’t as good as yours.
    3) Cosmic coincidence.

    The Brunswick sounds great.

    thomasanddiesel: This arrangement uses the re-entrant string quite heavily so it would take a lot of reworking for guitar.
