Sonny and Cher – I Got You Babe (Tab)

Sonny & Cher – I Got You Babe (Tab) Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today. Like Tuesday’s post, this one uses the slightly unusual 6/8 time signature. That means each bar is two sets of three beats. I like to count the bars 1,2,3,2,2,3. But […]

As well as the Hunger Games connection, I’ve tried to keep the arrangement as minimal and easy to play as possible. The arrangement draws heavily on Lorde’s sparse, minor key version. But it also […]

It’s pretty low tech: – Grab a pen and paper. – Answer the questions (using a ukulele to help you is entirely allowed and encouraged). – There might be spoilers in the comments. – Check the answers here (no peeking). – Return in triumph or despair […]

Johnny Cash – I Got Stripes (Chords)

Johnny Cash – I Got Stripes (Chords) Johnny Cash is a big favourite for ukulele groups and jams. And The Poor Boys of Worcester’s version of I Got Stripes has me convinced that song should be added to Ring of Fire and Folsom Prison Blues in the repertoire. There are a couple of weirdnesses that […]
