Tiny Tim – Tiptoe Through the Tulips (Tab)

Tiny Tim – Tiptoe Through the Tulips (Tab) I was very snooty about Tiny Tim back in the day. But, now my brain has gone soft in old age, I’ve developed a fondness for him. The more the ukulele world has become populated with people with good hair and nice teeth the more I appreciate […]

Blind Willie Johnson – The Soul of a Man (Slide Uke Tab)

Blind Willie Johnson – The Soul of a Man (Tab) Today’s post was prompted by Douglas and Stephen who requested a bit of slide ukulele. I was trying to think of which song to do when I watched the new Assassin’s Creed trailer that features a cover of Blind Willie Johnson’s Soul of a Man […]

Alan Parsons Project – Sirius (Chicago Bulls Theme)(Tab)

Alan Parsons Project – Sirius (Tab) The third and final tab for Game Day. The Last Dance, the documentary on the Jordan-era Chicago Bulls, had some great 90s music in it. The closing sequence with Pearl Jam’s Present Tense absolutely floored me. But instead of covering any of that, I dusted off my cricket bat […]

Darren Korb – Vagrant Song (Pyre)(Tab)

Darren Korb – Vagrant Song (Tab) Part two of Game Day and this time it’s a song from the video game Pyre suggested by patron Xavier. I’m using a capo on the 4th fret to keep it in the same key as the original. But there’s no reason you can’t play it without one if […]

One Night Ultimate Werewolf – Fantasy Theme (Tab)

One Night Ultimate Werewolf – Fantasy Theme (Tab) It’s game day on Uke Hunt. I’m covered music connected to three types of games. Starting with the tabletop hidden-role game One Night Ultimate Werewolf. A game I haven’t played but have spent a lot of time watching charming nerds play while practicing. So inevitably I worked […]

John Denver – Take Me Home, Country Roads (Tab)

John Denver – Take Me Home, Country Roads (Tab) Another bonus week of tabs courtesy of the Uke Hunt patrons. Kicking off with this John Denver classic suggested by Litespeed. It seems many people have it on their minds at the moment. Just in the time I’ve been working on the song covers by Whitney […]

Friday Links: Willie K RIP

Hawaiian ukulele legend, Willie K dies at age 59 after 2-year battle with cancer. Willie was a consumate musician who was as at home playing the blues and shredding with Steven Tyler as he was performing classical music using his startling operatic voice. – An auction of Formby banjoleles and memorabilia turned out nice again […]

John Prine – Fish and Whistle/In Spite of Ourselves (Tab)

John Prine – Fish and Whistle/In Spite of Ourselves (Tab) A little tribute to John Prine who passed away last month. Both these pieces use Cotten picking (named after Elizabeth Cotten) where the thumb alternates between the g- and C-strings and the index and middle fingers play the melody on the E- and A-strings respectively. […]

Uke Hunt is Thirteen

Uke Hunt turned 13 this month. According to WebMD a 13 year olds will, “speak in longer, more complex sentences [and] use sarcasm and humor.” Fascinating. Here’s a round-up of the goings-on of the last year. May 2019 In tabs: The Zombies – This Will Be Our Year, Ukulele Ike – Ja-Da (Tab) and K-Pop […]
