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 […]

Christmas Tabs and Chords

We’re about a month out from Christmas so time to start polishing up the festive tunes and learning a few new ones. Here’s a rundown of everything Christmassy on the site. Christmas eBooks I’ve written 3 collections of easy Christmas tabs: How to Play Christmas Ukulele, Christmas Ukulele 2 and Christmas Ukulele 3. You can […]

St Vincent – New York (Tab)

St Vincent – New York (Tab) I’m mostly into St Vincent for the wild guitar playing and shuffle dancing. But this beautiful, straightforward ballad immediately struck me as prime for a ukeing. And other than a few big pinkie-stretches it works very neatly. I’m mostly playing this very loosely without any strict pattern. In the […]

Friday Links: Jake’s Secret, Dog Love, Expensive Ukes

Jake Shimabukuro has revealed the secret to his virtuosity. A piece by David Farrier (the documentarian behind Dark Tourist and Tickled) on a guy who went viral after being snapped playing ukulele for his humping dogs turns completely insane. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are worried that ukuleles are so popular that no one will play […]

The Beatles – Hey Jude (Tab)

The Beatles – Hey Jude (Tab) Technically, I shouldn’t be posting this on White Album week. But it was recorded during the White Album sessions and it is one of the best (possibly the best) Beatles song. If you’re dying for a White Album song have a go at the Blackbird tab. I’ve kept the […]

Back in the USSR: Solo View this post on Instagram A post shared by @ukulelehunt on Nov 7, 2018 at 4:10am PST A great solo using the A minor pentatonic scale over a blues […]

The Beatles – Honey Pie (Chords and Tab)

The Beatles – Honey Pie (Chords) It’s the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ White Album this month. So I thought I’d completely trash my no-Beatles rule with a week of songs from that era. Starting with the 1920s pastiche of Honey Pie that was made to played on uke. The intro is a typical piece […]
