After being on the wagon for a while, I’ve given in to UAS this week and got myself a Christmas present. 10 internets to anyone who guess what I’ve bought. Mr Kazookeylele is selling a genuine Kazookeylele. aNueNue are continuing with their signature ukes with an electric ukulele styled after, Canadian uke rockers, Lucky Uke. […]
Videos: Jake plays and answers questions on livestream (thanks to Phredd). Incredible clip of Laura Dukes on iPlayer (after a minute of Alexis Korner) (thanks to Bossarocker). Live ‘Ukulele interview James Hill. I’ve been over exited about the release of John King and Jim Tranquada‘s The ‘Ukulele: A History for what seems like years. And […]
Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks I think it’s about time I did a song people actually want to play. I’ve had a few requests for a uke version of the riff so I thought I’d knock up the chords as well. Uke Friendly Chords Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks (Capo) The […]

This week’s uke adjacent instrument is the mandoliny from Madagascar in a clip that’s criminally cut short.
National Style 1 ukulele prototype. It’s the first of the new line of National ukes, numbered 001 given to the guy who provided his triolion for examination. In the war of the guiatar lookalikes I think the cutest are the Tomo Strat and Les Paul. In a similarly guitar-like vein is this electric Tiki Idol […]
Daddystovepipe has released his follow-up to Fingerpicking Blues ebook. You can pick up a copy on his website. I’ve been working my way through it and, just like volume one, there’s a tone of stuff to cut your teeth on. An interesting article looking at ukulele sales. It includes chats with Mike ‘Kala’ Upton and […]
C418 – Wet Hands (Tab) I had to play Minecraft for hours on end to tab this one out. You get a random piece of music four times a day. So I just had to keep playing and grab my ukulele quickly when Wet Hands came on. There was no other way of doing it. […]
