Glenn Miller/David Beckingham – In the Mood (Tab)

David Beckingham – In the Mood I’ve had a couple of half-hearted attempts at working up a version of this myself but never came up with anything that I thought really worked. Lucky for me, David nailed it and he’s kindly let me share the tab for his version with y’all. Subscribe to David’s YouTube […]

Olivia Ruiz, Miss Jess, tUnE-YaRdS: Saturday UkeTube

Videos this week from the mind-bending tUnE-YaRdS (and don’t miss FIYA from the same session), Miss Jess, Siri Nilsen (same song as last time but it’s too good), Nate Lieby (I strongly advise you close your eyes for 15 seconds at the 2:25 mark) and plenty more. A lot of stuff I wanted to post […]

Black Friday, Boat Paddle: Ukulele Window Shopping

We should definitely have Thanksgiving in the UK. How could we turn down a day of over eating? And a day of over spending afterwards? If you’re looking for a Black Friday deal, you can get 15% off at Guitar Center today (Friday) using the code BLACKFRIDAY. I think I’d use it to pick up […]

Ukulele Festival of Great Britain: Friday Links

The Ukulele Festival of Great Britain is going to take place in Cheltenham on 19th and 20th June next year. The bill is rumored to include GUGUG, Uke Box and Ukulelezaza.

Jamie T – Spider’s Web (Tab)

I regard myself as being pretty near unshockable when it comes to lyrics but I did have a ‘Can he say that?’ moment in this song (I won’t spoil it if you haven’t heard it yet). I wasn’t expecting ukulele riffery from Jamie T but this is a damn fine bit of work. And quite […]

Jim D’Ville’s Play Ukulele By Ear Review

If you’re a regular on the blog, you’ll have noticed I’ve linked to quite a few of Jim D’Ville’s posts on Play Ukulele By Ear. His posts are always interesting and informative and I think ear training is essential for any musician. So when Jim was kind enough to send me a copy of his […]

Sophie Madeleine – Stars (Chords and Tab)

Sophie Madeleine – Stars (Chords and Tab) Here’s another top-notch song from Sophie Madeleine and another one for to steal (unless they made exactly the same screw ups with the passing chords I did). And they butcher the stuff they nick: they even keep the G’ notation in this which makes no sense since […]

Craig Robertson: Interview

Craig Robertson – The Ballard of Blanche Barrow (MP3) Craig Robertson – The Scorpion Queen (MP3) via Craig Robertson’s Music Blog There aren’t many people in the ukulele community I have more respect for than Craig Robertson. He’s been a massive supporter of new ukulele talent through his Ukulele Noir and Ukulele Caravan shows, he’s […]

charlieissocoollike – A Song About Acne (Chords)

Charlie McDonnell – A Song About Acne With this video heading for a million views, this one’s getting so huge I just have to put it up. The song reminds me of MJ Hibbett: lo-fi uke, unpredictable scantion, addressing himself in the second person. Perhaps if MJ got Stephen Fry to do an outro for […]
