Friday Links: eBay Shenanigans

Something very suspicious is going on with the eBay seller jp-cultures. They have a large range of very impressive ukuleles for sale. But some of their listings seem to be identical to listings by other sellers. They only have 17 feedback (despite having nearly 6000 instruments for sale) but their positive feedback seems to be […]

Adele/Bob Dylan – Make You Feel My Love (Tab)

Make You Feel My Love (Tab) Rounding off Valentine’s week with one of the few lovey-dovey songs I actually like. Make You Feel My Love first cropped up on Bob Dylan’s Out of Time (a record that was seen as Dylan’s “I’m nearly dead” album when it came out twenty years ago). But it became […]

Friday Links: Mike Lynch

Ukulele Mike, the original YouTube ukulele teacher, has sadly died at the age of 72. The Edmonds Beacon has an excellent obituary for him. Including the fact that he worked with Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack to the Robin Williams movie Toys. Another sad death was that of Thomas Boardman. You may not recognise his […]

Portugal. The Man – Feel It Still (Tab)

Portugal. The Man – Feel It Still (Tab) One of 2017 most unexpected hits. Portugal. The Man have been knocking around for years without bothering the charts. But last year’s instantly catchy Feel It Still changed that. And made me tackle arranging it despite it being not immediately uke-suitable. So this one is a bit […]
