I feel a bit guilty for all the UK-centric theme tunes I do. The only US shows I watch have doom laden intros (House, Heroes) or featureless backing for a voiceover (The Daily Show, Mythbusters). So if you have any suggestions for non-UK theme tunes that would work well on the uke, let me know.
Having said that, the Coronation Street theme tune doesn’t work too well on the uke. It’s a little too slow for the uke’s sustain. Which is why Ian Re-entrant’s funky version works well. But it’s a more faithful version that I’ve tabbed up.
