Mungo Jerry – In the Summertime (Chords)

Mungo Jerry – In the Summertime (Chords) I can relate to this song’s take on summer. Not so much the drinking, driving and leching. More the writing half a line of a song, running out of brain power and just lapsing into dee-dee-dees. But the main reason I’m tabbing it is Tom Richter‘s excellent ukulele […]

Led Zeppelin – The Rain Song (Tab)

Led Zeppelin – Rain Song (Tab) I just love Zeppelin so this song has been on my to-do pile for a long time. It had stayed there because I was a bit intimidated by how much there is going on. But once I got stuck into it the tune transferred to the ukulele surprisingly smoothly. […]

Bonus Tabs and Chords

It seems I just can’t stop myself tabbing. Despite being on a blog break the last few weeks, I put up a few time-sensitive tabs and chords in other places. Here’s a catch-up on them: O’Neill – Nun Song (From Orange is the New Black)(Chords) O’Neill- Nun Song (Chords) As I mentioned yesterday I loved […]

Tom Waits – Come On Up to the House (Chords)

Tom Waits – Come On Up to the House (Chords) Scatter the nuns! I spent most of my aestivation watching the second series of Orange is the New Black. And I was inspired by O’Neill’s delightful banjoleling to write up the chords for my favourite song of the series. No, not Hey There De-bloody-lilah. But […]

Summer Holiday

Acoustic Intros (Tab)

Since the last Acoustic Intros post I’ve been itching to do another one. And I realised that I’ve notched up five requests that (just about – I’m looking at you Bonnie Bear) fit that description. They vary in difficulty but they all make use of fingerpicking. Usual rules apply: I try to do them in […]
