Marko van der Horst: Friday Links

Very sad news this week that Marko van der Horst of The Uke Box and the Jumping Flea Circus has died at the age of 45. My thoughts are with Shelley and Marko’s family. Kickstarting – Jim Boggia is Patreoning his ukulele videos. Learning – Will “off of the UOGB” Grove-White’s ukulele book is now […]

The Swamp Whistler from Rayman Legends (Tab)

Christophe Héral – The Swamp Whistler (Tab) There are a bunch of nice ukulele tunes on the Rayman Legends Soundtrack. I got a request for this one and went with it because the whole thing is done with chords. That means you don’t have to be able to read tab to play this one. I’ve […]

Kimo Hussey’s Ukulele Masterclass

If you’re looking for someone to inspire your ukulele playing you couldn’t do much better than Kimo Hussey. He’s about the smoothest and classiest ukulelist around. Lucky for us he’s also a great teacher and he’s put up a series of masterclasses on his YouTube channel. I find them incredibly inspiring and highly recommend you […]

Joe Brown – I’ll See You in My Dreams (Chords)

Joe Brown – I’ll See You in My Dreams (Chords) I’ve been decidedly tardy putting up this 1920s song by Isham Jones and Gus Kahn. It was meant to go up about 7 years ago. But it’s here at last. The song has been recorded by a huge number of people including Ukulele Ike. But […]

Pharrell Williams – Happy (Instrumental Tab)

Pharrell Williams – Happy (Tab) To counteract yesterday’s gloomfest I decided to do a version of the most cheerful song of the summer. Plus I was feeling like a room without a roof so this is the smiliest I have looked in any video ever. Technique Notes For the most part I’m playing the verses […]

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 […]

Blind Melon – No Rain (Tabs and Chords)

Blind Melon – No Rain (Chords) I originally had this one planned for the Acoustic Intros post. But in a fit of nostalgia I blundered into writing up the entire thing. The chords are a bit tricky. There’s a fast switch between G and the dreaded E chord. You can make the transition a little […]
