DuckTales Theme (Tab)

Mark Mueller – DuckTales Theme (Tab) Finishing off cartoon week with an exceptionally catchy tune that set the standard for yelling “woo hoo!” (it’s a Duck-Blur indeed). And it’s particularly relevant to give it a ukeing now that the rejiggered series features Uke Hunt favourite Kate Micucci. The song includes a subtle key change with […]

SpongeBob SquarePants – F.U.N. Song (Tab)

SpongeBob SquarePants – F.U.N. Song (Tab) While writing up Sweet Victory earlier this year, I decided I had to do a tab of this classic SpongeBob ukulele song. I’ve kept the arrangement very simple. There are just three underlying chords: F, Bb and C. And I’m only using my thumb for picking. Although you could […]

Splendora – You’re Standing On My Neck (Daria Theme)(Chords)

Splendora – You’re Standing On My Neck (Chords) With most theme tunes these days being heavy on doom and light on tunes, you can always rely on cartoons for an enjoyable, catchy theme.

The Decemberists – Shankill Butchers (Tab)

The Decemberists – Shankill Butchers (Tab) There’s a long history of murder ballads in folk music. But they’re all set comfortably in the past. It’s a very different experience listening to a song about murders set in your own lifetime. The Shankill Butchers were loyalist gang in 1970s Northern Ireland who viciously murdered 19 people […]

Nina Simone – I Put a Spell on You (Chords)

Nina Simone – I Put a Spell on You (Chords) Another intensely creepy song from Screamin’ Jay Hawins (whose Whistlin’ Past the Graveyard I chorded for an earlier Halloween). And I’ve gone with Nina Simone’s bewitching version for the arrangement. Although I’ve used the A chord shape for the F#m7 to keep things simple, I […]
