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.

Bon Iver – Marion (Tab)

The acoustic track Marion is the most like his debut album and so obviously suited for a ukulele cover I started […]

Playing Two Songs at Once

Warning: This post started out as a bit of fun and ended up breaking my brain. Playing a Round Alone I while back Guido Heistek posted a challenge to play a song in the round by yourself. A round is where the same melody is performed over itself with a different starting point. For example, […]

Jimi Hendrix – The Wind Cries Mary (Chords and Tab)

Jimi Hendrix – The Wind Cries Mary (Chords and Tab) Shinyribs’ excellent ukulele version of The Wind Cries Mary inspired me to fix the lack of Hendrix chordings on Uke Hunt (unless you count Wild Thing). The song is based around an Eb-E-F motif. In the original that’s played with two different inversions. Which is […]
