Beck Ukulele Notation Album: Friday Links

Beck is releasing his next album Song Reader only as sheet music, “and, when necessary, ukelele notation.”

Other books: The Bad Girls & Mean Women Songbook. Ode to uke – a ukulele novelty book (from the guy behind Ukulele Porn). The first book I’ve seen specifically for 6-string ukulele.

Release: The Love Leighs’ All Your Talk of Love

Videos: Garfunkel and Oates’s webseries on HBOGo (check your ukuleles for golden tickets). The inevitable ‘bunch of people on one ukulele covering Gotye’ video. Short film with Eddie Vedder: Ukulele Songs (just make sure his ukeing doesn’t make you, “puke on some chick.”).

On Uker Tabs: Marchetti’s Fascination

Pictures: Kauai Music and Sound’s logo looks familiar (Thanks to Rayan). Funny hats. Fixing Ohta San’s ukulele.

    This actually makes me disproportionately angry! – its not an album is it? Its a collection of sheet music. Its called a book Beck, a fucking book! Jesus!

    BTW, MY new book has just gone on sale. You can buy it from PC World and it costs £599

    zymeck: You’re just a shill for the record industry. They just want us to rebuy all our sheet music on wax cylinder.

    Nah, an album is any collection of works. Photo album, sticker album etc. Including a collection of sheet music.

    Not that I want to spoil a good rant or owt. ;o)

    Ambient Doughnut: Rant away! You are correct.
