Damien Rice – The Blower’s Daughter (Tab)

Damien Rice – The Blower’s Daughter (Tab) While I was tabbing the Frankie Valli track the line, “Can’t take my eyes off you,” kept reminding me of this track. And it’s not the only familiar part of this song. The bridge is a dead-ringer for No Surprises. The arrangement uses a mixture of picking and […]

If you’re looking to entertain over the festive season, it’s time to start polishing up your holiday tunes and learning a few new ones.

Ray Charles – Georgia On My Mind (Tab)

Ray Charles – Georgia On My Mind (Tab) I hastily put together this version of the Hoagy Carmichael classic last week while it was still relevant. But it turns out this song is going to be relevant for a while yet. My version is heavily based on Ray Charles. But I’ve made a few adjustments. […]

Vulfpeck‘s Cory Wong chats with Jake Shimabukuro about technique, gear and touring with Bela Fleck. A big step above the standard Shimabukuro interview. (Thanks to Dan for the tip-off.) CPR Classical ask James Hill […]

Frankie Valli – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You (Tab)

Frankie Valli – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You (Tab) For this arrangement I’ve mashed-up elements of the Andy Williams version and the original Frankie Valli version. Like the Williams version, mine is in the uke-friendly key of C all the way through. Whereas the Valli version starts in E and modulates to G. The […]

Sylvan Esso – Rooftop Dancing (Tab)

Sylvan Esso – Rooftop Dancing (Tab) There’s been a healthy crop of great albums this year. My current favourite is Sylvan Esso’s Free Love. So I grabbed my uke and put together a cover of Rooftop Dancing. The song fits nicely on uke. The chords are simple and the melody is contained in the first […]
