Wilfried Welti: Classical and Folk Tabs

If you’ve been following the blog closely you’ll certainly know Wilfried Welti. I’ve been posting his videos since 2007 and put up his two free tab books: Solo Ukulele für Einsteiger and Weihnachten mit der Ukulele. If you were impressed by his arrangements you’ll want to get hold of the three ebooks he’s just released. […]

Pussy Riot – Putin Lights Up the Fires (Chords)

Pussy Riot – Putin Lights Up the Fires (Chords) I always think the best protest songs are the ones by the people directly affected by the issue. And Pussy Riot’s latest adds weight to that by being the best song by political prisoners since Mzwakhe Mbuli’s Triple B. I’ve included phonetic lyrics cribbed from this […]

David’s Lyre – Heartbeat (Chords)

David’s Lyre – Heartbeat (Chords) Love this tune. The whole album is great. You can get it on Bandcamp on a ‘pay what you like’ basis. First order of business: tune down a whole step to F Bb D G. Here are the tuning notes: Tuning Notes The strumming starts off dead easy. It’s just […]

Wilfried Welti, Where Are All The Buffalo?: UkeTube

I haven’t been paying as much attention as usual so this week’s video roundup is a bit shorter than usual. If you’ve seen any videos I should know about leave them in the comments. But among the videos I did find is one by the ever excellent Wilfried Welti. He’s just released three new e-books […]

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 […]

Hip Hop Riffs Part 2

After the last hip hop riffs post people seemed keen for a follow up. And I’m more than happy to oblige with five six more. Same riffs rules as always: it’s not the whole song and not necessarily in the original key. Kanye West – Touch the Sky Riff A significantly slowed down sample of […]

Mark Kailana Nelson – Juke’n the Uke Tab Book Review

You might, and should, know Mark Kailana Nelson from his essential book Fingerstyle Solos for Ukulele. His latest book is a collection of blues, rag and hokum tunes from Mark’s album of the same name. He was kind enough to send me a copy and here’s what I thought of it. What You Get Tab […]

Andrews Sisters/Sophie Madeleine – Bei Mir Bist du Schon (Chords)

Sophie Madeleine – Bei Mir Bist du Schon (Chords) I have a bone to pick with the end of this song: it really annoys me when a song that’s been in a minor key switches to major right at the end. You never hear a major song turning minor right at the end (watch the […]

Walk off the Earth, Scott Avett: UkeTube

It’s not often I repost the same song from the same band. But it’s happened twice this week with Shiny and the Spoon reprising their cover of A-ha and Keston Cobblers’ Club. Also on the list is Scott Avett with a horrible ukulele, Walk off the Earth tossing around a Flea banjolele (head to 2:54 […]

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 […]
