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.
