Nick Drake – Horn (Tab)

Nick Drake – Horn (Tab) It’s not often I break with my schedule but Nick Drake’s Horn popped into my ears this morning and I felt compelled to get my own up. It also fits well with the real post today about pieces suitable for solo ukulele beginners. It’s the sparsest track on Drake’s sparsest […]

And a tribute to Jeff Buckley since the intro is completely ripped off from his incredible version. […]

Leonard Cohen – Suzanne (Chords and Tab)

Leonard Cohen – Suzanne (Chords) 2016 sure has been a ride. (The first draft had hopes of no more musicians dying here but between writing the post and it going up Leon Russell died.) Being in the key of E, the chords for Suzanne are a bit tricky. You can make it easier by doing […]
