Last of Us 2 Medley: A-ha, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, New Order (Tab)

Last of Us Part II Medley (Tab) In this month’s Patreon request thread, I got a total of five requests for songs that are featured in The Last of Us 2. So I thought I’d put them all together in a medley. Although Wayfaring Stranger and Take On Me are by far the longest sections. […]

Favourite Ukulele Videos of 2020 So Far

Watch on YouTube It’s the halfway point of the year and time for a roundup of my favourite videos so far. And it’s been a weird year. Which is reflected in the videos which are split between live clips and socially distanced edited videos. If there’s anything great I’ve missed, send me a link in […]

Hank Williams – I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry (Tab)

Hank Williams – I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry (Tab) This tab was requested by Patron Fiona. She asked for a version that, “lets you play up the neck as well as in the lower end where it’s comfortable”. I don’t know if I’ve entirely fulfilled that brief. The melody is contained within an octave […]

Dua Lipa – Don’t Start Now (Tab)

Dua Lipa – Don’t Start Now (Tab) About once a year a pop song manages to pierce my grumpiness and make me grin. This year it’s been Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now. There’s a lot to recommend the song: the jazzy chords, the funky bass, the cowbell. But my favourite aspect is the one-note chorus. […]

Songs from TikTok

I ventured into TikTok the other day to find out what the kids are into. Turns out they love hyper-literal dance moves, handing over their data to the CCP, syncopation and jazz chords. I’m entirely on board with those last two. So here’s a selection of songs that became popular on TikTok. Doja Cat – […]

CCR/Wilson Pickett – Proud Mary/Midnight Hour (Tab)

Proud Mary/Midnight Hour (Tab) One of the joys of lockdown has been watching rockers replace their bands with their kids. Best of all has been John Fogerty blasting out the hits with his family. So here’s a uke version of one of those hits paired with another sixties banger from Wilson Pickett (who covered Proud […]

Martha and the Vandellas – Dancing in the Street (Tab)

Martha and the Vandellas – Dancing in the Street (Tab) A particularly relevant Motown classic today to express my solidarity with my American friends fighting for justice. The arrangement is based primarily on the Martha Reeves version. But I do slip in the bass riff from the Bowie/Jagger version which first pops up in bar […]
