Wilfried Welti has a new Christmas ukulele ebook out: Christmas Music with the Ukulele. If, for some inexplicable reason, you’re in any doubt about buying it take a look at his previous free Christmas ebook Weihnachten mit der Ukulele.

Beck’s album of sheet music with ukulele chords is imminent and he has released the score to the song Old Shanghai which you can download on SongReader.net and make your own version of. There’s excellent uke version here and here’s my instrumental version.

For Sale:
– Pre-order Helen Arney’s ukulele chord book.

New Navy’s Regular Town.

Rudy off of E4’s Misfits shared some life experience: “When you’re locked in a prison cell 23 hours a day there’s not much else to do than masturbate and play ukulele.” Watch it here if you’re in a suitable geographic area.
