Uke of Carl – The Most of…

Being a fan of playing theme tunes on the ukulele, I very much enjoy the Uke of Carl blog. Carl’s done some great tabs of movie, TV and game themes. It was the first birthday of his blog yesterday so I asked him to guest blog a few of his arrangements and he was kind enough to agree.

My Most Viewed Video

Theme from Angry Boys

I posted this late on a Friday night after watching the show. It was a quick one I worked out by ear. When I awoke on the Saturday morning it had notched up well over a thousand views. This was around 950 views more than I was used to at the time!

My Most Requested Tab

Theme from Morrowind

This is a lovely melody, I’m not surprised that I get almost daily emails asking me for a copy of the TAB. I’ve just started to play Skyrim, so updates to my site will probably begin to peter out until I get sick of it.

My Video With The Most ‘Dislikes’

Theme from Parks and Recreation

Although I don’t dwell on it, the dislike button on Youtube is a strange invention. This has had 5 dislikes so far, compared to 8 likes. Perhaps the public didn’t like the mask I made for the video? I think it’s a vast improvement to the one I normally wear.

The One That Took The Most Time

Theme from Star Trek

No matter how many times I tried, I couldn’t get a perfect take on this one. After around a month of nightly attempts, I settled with this performance. People have often remarked that I look bored in my videos. I’m not bored, just angry and frustrated that I take so long when recording.

    Thank you very much for this. I wanted to celebrate with a birthday cake but don’t care for dessert, so instead I’ve put a solitary candle in the top of my rag pudding.

    Hope your readers can make the most out of my tabs. Plenty more to come. Keep an eye on my site!

    Cheers.

    Anyone who doesn’t like a Ron Swanson mask is probably a terrible person anyway.

    Uke of Carl: Thanks! And Happy Birthday!

    Carrie: I think all of my videos would be significantly improved by a Swanson mask.

    mictoboy: He is indeed.

    The Parks and Recreation theme tabs make my day… and my list of things to learn. Thanks for sharing Carl’s blog- I’ll definitely be checking it out.

    If anyone is interested in a Skyrim tab (following the Morrowind theme), here’s a guy who did a nice strumming version; he even has a tutorial and tabs.
