Buzzcocks – Ever Fallen in Love (Chords and Tab)

Buzzcocks – Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)? (Chords) In tribute to Pete Shelley I had to write up this punk classic. As much of a punk classic as it is, it doesn’t follow the I-IV-V three-chord belter of most punk songs. It even has a key change in the outro. Some other […]

John Philip Sousa – The Liberty Bell (Tab)

David Beckingham – Liberty Bell (Tab) A new tab from David Beckingham. This time he’s covering John Philip Sousa’s The Liberty Bell which, despite being used in the majority of US presidential inaugurations, is still best known as the Monty Python theme tune.

Elton John – Your Song (Chords and Tab)

Elton John – Your Song (Chords) Today I’m writing up Parada de Tettas by The Vengaboys. But then again, no. I’m doing this year’s John Lewis ad Elton John’s Your Song.

Lana Del Rey – Venice Bitch (Baritone Tab)

Lana Del Rey – Venice Bitch (Tab) Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans. And happy No-Americans-on-the-Internet Day to everyone else. Today I’m thankful for baritone ukuleles. They may be inferior to real ukuleles but sometimes they’re the best tool for the job. Such as for this latest tune from Lana Del Rey. The picking pattern […]
