Eddie Vedder – Tuolumne (Tab)

Eddie Vedder – Tuolumne (Tab) Nype suggested I do a uke version of Eddie Vedder’s Tuolumne from the soundtrack of Into the Wild (and the precursor to Just Breathe). I was a bit trepedacious as a lot of guitar picking songs end up finger-crunchingly tricky on ukulele. But it actually works out very well. I […]

Tabular Mac App Review

I’ve been using Guitar Pro to make my tabs for longer than this site has existed. But I spend so much time making tabs that I’m always on the lookout for something better. So I picked up a new tabbing app for Mac: Tabular by Chromatic Labs It’s very new and the bugs are still […]

Daft Punk – Get Lucky (Chords)

Daft Punk – Get Lucky I was humming and hawing over whether to write Get Lucky up until I heard Will Grove-White’s awesome ukulele version. Both versions are in the same key so you can use these chords to play along with either. Suggested Strumming Nile Rodgers’s funky rhythm part really makes the song. There’s […]
