Laura Marling, Glen Hansard: UkeTube

Incredibly Serious Warning: There are two songs here made famous by Maroon 5.

For any of you brave enough to continue, this week has a great new song from Laura Marling (bet you can’t guess what make of ukulele she’s playing). Also, off of Once, Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová in separate videos. And two videos from Mexico: Natalia Lafourcade and uke-adjacent action from Al Guatimé Strike.

If you’re a Catey Shaw fan you have to listen to her super-fun new song on Soundcloud.

    Laura Marling plays the uke so beautifully! She has once again become my favourite Laura (sorry Laura Veirs).

    Loving Summer Ends as well. What a fitting song for a cold sunny day.

    I was totally gonna request tabs from you for “not done travelin'”

    That video only makes me look forward to my upcoming mya moe even more.

    Great selection once again, Woodshed. There is always at least one song that gets stuck in my head.

  4. Laura September 30th, 2012 11:05 am

    Already in love with ‘Baby Would You Marry Me’ from exploring SoundCloud, any chance of a tab for that one?

    Great selection!

    It looks like Laura Marling is playing an open tuning; as far as I can quickly figure it seems to be an open F: F-C-F-A (low to high). Any chance of a tab on that? Sort of a clawhammer style, which I’m partial to…

    Laura Marling is a champion. Glen Hansard, a vocal wizard. Cutie Marketa and her friend = awesome. Natalia enchants. La Bamba rocks. The world better watch out for Nigella. Sarah King, where have you been all my life?

  7. Woodshed October 1st, 2012 11:05 am

    Ru: Glad you liked.

    Rufus: Enjoy your new Mya-Moe when you get it. (*Jealous*)

    JimUke: Glad to hear it!

    Laura: Not very likely, I’m afraid.

    Jim: Yeah, that’s the tuning I thought she was using. I’m not into clawhammer myself but I might give it a go.

    jackalope: When are you putting up a new video? It’s been too long.

  8. jackalope October 5th, 2012 9:51 am

    very soon! stay tuned…

    It took,some time, but Laura’s vocal style and voice reminded me of someone else. Tanita Tikaram!
    Any other old fogies remember her.
    Love the song.

    Hey, this is a great selection!. Do you think you could to post the chords of ‘Aventurera’?, I really love it!.

  11. Woodshed October 6th, 2012 4:01 pm

    jackalope: I can’t wait!

    Hms: I thought you were crazy when I first read the comment! But after checking it out I can definitely hear similarities.

    Edgar: I don’t think I’ll be posting the whole thing but you might be able to work things out from this little discussion.

  12. Pat October 7th, 2012 12:08 am

    Hey do you think you could make a tab for “We Could Happen” by AJ rafael?

  13. Lorrin October 10th, 2012 3:57 am

    I would love for a tab of “Baby, Would You Marry Me?”

    I have about two chords figured out, and I just don’t have the skill to do it myself.

  14. Woodshed October 10th, 2012 2:17 pm

    Laura and Lorrin: Here’s a quick tab of the intro/verse:

  15. Griffen October 12th, 2012 6:20 pm

    This is a great post! Is there any way you could help me figure out a tab for Come Away to the Water?

  16. Lorrin November 28th, 2012 4:10 am

    I’ve mastered the intro/verse, and even brought it to others.
    But I’m dying to be able to sing the whole song.
    Do you think you could tab out the whole thing?
    I’m willing to wait for it.

  17. Woodshed November 28th, 2012 9:36 am

    Lorrin: It would have helped if either of you had just said thanks after I did the tab.

  18. Lorrin November 28th, 2012 3:30 pm

    I didn’t?! I’m so sorry, I could’ve sworn I did!!
    Thanks so much for doing that! I was so excited.

  19. Peter January 16th, 2013 4:58 pm

    wow, that laura marling song is just wondeful! Any chance of seeing a tab for it?

  20. Woodshed January 16th, 2013 10:16 pm

    Peter: There’s a chance. But I suck at clawhammer so that makes it difficult.
