Robert Johnson Ukulele Tab Book: Friday Links

There’s a Robert Johnson ukulele tab book on the way.

Pictures: Martin factory 1925, Melvin Goaté the ukulele goat, Death Meets Amanda Palmer, Don’t you DARE walk away from me, Nick Nolte on guitarlele, gig bag maker and his mule (thanks to Phredd).

The pUKES have some sixty ukuleles between them and have started reviewing them all here.

Video: The Ukulele Hall of Fame has a lovely silent video including Manuel Nunes, Most Popular Ukulele Videos August, Skyrim dancing ukulele bear

Sophie Madeleine’s second album The Rhythm You Started has been officially released in the US (including a track I don’t think has been released before – annoyingly it’s album only). And here’s an exclusive clip of her in the studio discussing her gear:

    Ah, lovely Nick Nolte. I had a drunken theory a while back that him, Gary Busey and Ron Perlman should do a film together. Just low rumbling throughout. Soundtrack by Tom Waits…

    Anyway, that Robert Johnson book is getting well bought. Whether I’ll be able to play any of it is another matter entirely.

    Chris Q: Yeah, I’m going to be interested in that book too. I hope it’s well done.

    Yep, these Robert Johnson sheets are a great news.

    Don’t get why they didn’t phothshop a uke on the cover picture, though !

    Al, funny, when I clicked on the link for the pUkes reviews, I thought I was going to be looking at ukuleles from the 1960′s. I had to go back and look at what your wrote again to realize you meant the amount of ukes they own and not what year they were made. =]

    Longuet: I have to agree with their decision on that one!

    Phredd: Sorry! Maybe I should rephrase it.

    Totally interested in the Robert Johnson Ukulele tabs. Please give more info the subject- when, how to find them, etc. Great news for sure. Been a fan for over 35 years. In 1980 went to the plantation where he lived & actually met people that knew him. Found the directions to the place in the OAK PUBLICATIONS book with music to all of his tunes. Had 27 solid pages of info on him- the most available in one place at the time. Thanks for the info.

Got something to say?
