Darren Hanlon – All These Things (Chords)

Darren Hanlon – All These Things (Chords)

How adorable is Darren Hanlon in this video? So adorable I want to pinch his cheeks, ruffle his hair and give him 20p for Sherbet Dip.

Good news: Darren’s latest album, I Will Love You At All, (from which this song is off of) has been picked up by Yep Roc Records. Making him label-mates with fellow ukers Peggy Sue.

I’ve written the chords up as they’re played (with barre chords) but they sound perfectly good if you want to use the standard versions.

Suggested Strumming

For most of the song you can use this once for each chord:

But you need to be careful in the bridges and the third line of the chorus (on the F chord). There you can use all down strums.

Twiddly Bit

My favourite bit of the song is this little run using thirds:

Pre-order/buy it on Yep Rock

Requested by MandyMoo, Gillen and Issy.

    Thanks Al!

    I like the video, and I like the music, but for the life of me I can’t seem to like the lyrics. Ah well.

    Really Really Nice.

    Yes, this one’s adorable!

    I’m always amazed at how much better small time talent is compared to MTV rock stars.

    cool video

    Like that run on thirds. Simple and sweet. As usually deep prostrations to #1 Ukulele Hunt!

    J-Hob: Yes, that’s much more likely than what I was thinking.

    Peter: You’re welcome.

    MC Safety: I know what you mean. I quite like them though. Point of interest: there’s an early version of this song on YouTube and he sings, “first edition copy of the Koran,” rather than Peter Pan.

    Rob NY: Glad you like.

    Lindy: Yeah, there are so many people out there who deserve a bigger shot.

    Caitlin and krabbers: Ukulele ninjas seem to be where it’s at. Martina Topley Bird has one as well.

    Jeff: Actually #2 now.

    This is the song that made me want to learn to play the uke, so thanks!!

    Ha ha! With an introduction of ‘I’d like to pinch his cheeks’ – how could you not watch and love this vid?

    Thanks Al for the humour you add in your reviews! :)

    I’ve been using the site regularly for the last six months or so, as I bought myself a ukulele for Christmas last year. I’ve yet to comment, but thanks are in order for posting this song. Thank you, and keep up the great work.

    MandyMoo: You’re welcome.

    Lorraine: Glad you enjoyed.

    Logan: Thanks. I’ll do my best.

    Hey Woodshed,
    I was just about to send you an email saying you should listen to this when I thought to search and see if you had done something with it already! It’s such a lovely song I’m glad you know it! Thanks!

  19. Woodshed October 4th, 2011 10:30 am

    Nate: Thanks for thinking of me!

    Just so that you know, Daniel Kitson played this song at the end of his show at the National Theatre last night. I was pleased I knew the song, it was great. Here’s the show info: http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/66109/productions/its-always-right-now-until-its-later.html
