Cream – White Room (Chords)

Cream – White Room (Chords) Sad news this week of, bass playing legend, Jack Bruce’s death. As my little tribute, here’s a write up of one of his biggest hits. In the chord sheet above I’ve included the standard chord shapes. But I like to use these slightly trickier inversions: White Room (Alternate Chords) (Aside: […]

Arctic Monkeys – AM Medley (Tab)

Arctic Monkeys – AM Medley (Tab) Way back in 2007 the second ever chord post I did was Despair in the Departure Lounge.

Best Bits of Get Plucky with the Ukulele

Get Plucky with the Ukulele is the new book by Will Grove-White off of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and his own group Will Grove-White & the Others.

Cole Porter – You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To I had a clutch of requests for this Cole Porter song after posting Victor and Penny’s version the other week. And I’m always eager to write up a song that includes an aug7 chord. Being a Cole Porter classic, You’d Be So Nice has […]

Punk Pop Riffs (Tab)

Another one for the Riffs for Ukulele series. Usual rules apply: they’re intended to be played for a lark (even more so with these punk pop songs); no, I’m not going to write up the full song; and they’re not necessarily in the original key (although only Sum 41 in this post isn’t thanks to […]

No Hassle Chord Changes

With all the intricate and dexterous actions that evolution has equipped our hands for it’s left us woefully unprepared to play an Fmaj7 chord on the ukulele. It’s made plenty of chord changes a pain in the arse too. Laziness to the rescue! You can change the fingering of a chord or use a different […]
