Suicide is Painless (MASH Theme) (Tab)

Johnny Mandel – Suicide is Painless (Tab) This song has quite a story behind it. When working on the MASH movie Robert Altman attempted to come up with, “the stupidest song ever written,” for the funeral scene. But failed to come up with something suitably idiotic. But told the movie’s composer Johnny Mandel, “All is […]

And you can still get the shirt distributed from the US here. Kala has filed a UBass trademark lawsuit. Ukulele […]

ABBA – Mamma Mia (Group Tab)

I decided to write up this song after it cropped up in my post on augmented chords. And it quickly became obvious it would have to be a group arrangement. It’s impressively constructed. For most arrangements I can remove a few bits without losing too much. But all the parts here seem essential to the […]
