Friday Links: Worst Piece About Ukuleles in History

I’ve read some absolute drivel about ukuleles over the years. But there’s a new worst: Rolling Stone wrote an article about “best ukuleles” that “pros use” that’s so bad I’m not willing to link directly to it. New Releases – Craig Robertson’s Truth is a Runaway Horse. – Big Werl’s Licensed to Swill. You can […]

Ella Fitzgerald/Bjork – I Remember You (Tab)

I Remember You (Tab) I Remember You is heartbreaking beautiful song from 1941 by Victor Schertzinger and Johnny Mercer. My favourite versions of this are by Ella Fitzgerald and Bjork. But, bafflingly, Frank Ifield’s bizarre yodelling cowboy version is the most well known. You won’t be surprised to learn my arrangement is based on the […]

Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Loved (Chords and Tab)

Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Loved (Chords) You can’t move for I’m Yours chord progressions in the charts at the moment. Those are I V vi IV progressions to give them the technical definition.
