Tabs and Chords in a Minor Key

A while back I got a comment by Michael asked me for suggestions of songs in a minor key. Which struck me as an excellent idea of a post because I’m always looking for an excuse to stick it to the ‘it’s impossible to play the ukulele without smiling’ brigade.

If you’ve got a favourite minor key song to play leave it in the comments.

So here are lists of tabs and chords in a minor key (or at least minor enough to be glum):
