Billie Eilish – bury a friend (Tab)

Billie Eilish – bury a friend (Tab) I first stumbled across Billie Eilish with her ukulele song party favor. I enjoyed it enough to stick it on my Ukulele 2017 Spotify playlist but wasn’t entirely blown away. Something must have happened since then because she’s released four outstandingly good songs in a row. The song […]

Imagine Dragons – Thunder (Tab)

Imagine Dragons – Thunder (Tab) Thunder has many elements that make it great for a uke adaption: a strong melody, Simple chords in the key of C and some fun solo parts. But it also has that damn squeaky-voice section. That section was the hardest to get right and I’m still not sure it entirely […]

Weezer Cover Album Riffs

Last week Weezer surprise-launched the Teal Album comprised entirely of cover songs. The record itself is a bit hit-and-miss but the song choice is top-notch. So I decided to write up riffs (and one solo) from every track on the album. The Weezer versions stick very close to the originals (so much so you could […]
