Ukulele Dav & Arnaud D: Friday Links

I’ve had a lot of despondent messages since Ukulele Dav and Arnaud D’s site disappeared. But now their tabs are back. If you’re not familiar with the site, it’s well worth a visit for tabs of classic ukulele tunes.

There’s a new most ukers world record for Japan with a total of 2,134.

John Flansburgh and his Cat Ukuleles (“You can hear the ukulele on car commercials when they stop using toy pianos.”.

My patriotism being far outweighed by my ukuloyalty, I’ll be cheering for reigning Olympic champion, one of the few openly gay Olympians and ukulelist Matthew Mitcham in the 10m diving.

The list of July’s most popular ukulele videos is dominated by Tom ‘Off Of McFly’ Fletcher.

Pictures: ukulele girl band #1, ukulele girl band #2, ukulele/guitar/bass, “Mama, I think I’m in love with a ukulele player“, “It’s not a ukulele, Sherlock“.

Podcast with tips on taking photos of ukuleles from 11:50 (via krabbers).

The world’s most never ever popular instrument

New Release: Ukulele Heart by Tyrone and Lesley (and on CDBaby)

After a break of four years, I’ve returned to Last.fm (I realised it’s the only social network I used that I actually liked because it’s about something). Do friend me up and feel free to join my long neglected ukulele group. This week I’ve been mostly listening to Sun Kil Moon, Mary Epworth and Nas.
