New Releases – Tyrone and Lesley’s Gentlemen Songsters. – Bella […]

Spinal Tab – Stonehenge (Instrumental Tab)

Spinal Tap – Stonehenge (Mandolin Solo)(Tab) I could pretend I wrote this post Spinal Tap 30th Anniversary. But I actually wrote it to brag that I got 10 out of 10 in The Guardian’s Spinal Tap quiz. Bow down before me. I am your new god. For this arrangement I’ve taken the intro and outro […]

ukulelezaza – Happy Days are Here Again: Book Review

I’ve long been a fan of ukulelezaza (aka Remco Houtman). In fact he was in the third ever UkeTube in 2007. Back when MySpace was the obvious place to link to. So I was very excited to try out his tab book Happy Days are Here Again. Which Shelley of The Jumping Flea Market was […]

Pharrell/WotE – Happy (Chords)

Pharrell Williams/Walk off the Earth – Happy (Chords) Walk off the Earth do a great job of making the covers they do look like a ton of fun. Every time they make a new one I get the urge to write it up. And I caved once again with their version of Pharrell Williams’s Happy […]

Over half of the retailers have seen sales rise over the last year and only 9% expect sales to drop in the next few months. Seems like Kala’s basses might […]

Herman Vandecauter – Aire (Tab)

Herman Vandecuater – Aire (MP3) If you’ve been following along with the UkeTube you’ll be familiar with Herman Vandecauter’s consummate classical ukulele playing. He was kind enough to let me put up one of his handwritten tabs for Francois Duval’s Aire. The piece is fairly straightforward but if you want to play it as well […]

Songs With Chords You Know – Updated

I like to keep a list of songs that use just the most common ukulele chords. Arranged by the order people usually learn them in. That way you can find some songs to play no matter how few chords you know. And here’s the updated list including some notable new additions like: – Lorde’s massive […]

Edith Piaf/Cristin Milioti – La Vie En Rose (Chords)

Edith Piaf/Cristin Milioti – La Vie En Rose (Chords) After dating half the population of New York it took a ukulele player to win How I Met Your Mother‘s Ted Mosby’s heart. Although if he wanted a ukulele chanteuse he could have married Kate Micucci in series 2 and saved us and those poor kids […]
