Friday Links: Uke Song at No.1, Jake Plays the First Ukulele

Polo G’s RAPSTAR has made it to #1. The first ukulele song to do so since Train’s Hey, Soul Sister (I think). The legendary webshow Midnight Ukulele Disco is being uploaded to YouTube. Including probably the most iconic ukulele video there is. New tab book from Choan Galvez: Waltz in Progress. On Video – Jake […]

Weezer – Undone – The Sweater Song (Tabs)

Weezer – Undone – The Sweater Song (Tab) As befits its slacker nature, many elements of this song are very straightforward. The melody of the verse is just groups of two notes a semitone apart and are taken directly from the riff. And when they key changes for the solo, there’s no smooth transition it’s […]

Queen – Bicycle Race (Tabs)

Queen – Bicycle Race (Tab) As daft as Queen lyrics often are, they can always be relied on for some interesting music. Putting it together made me realise it’s structured similar to Rhapsody in Blue (and that other rhapsody). It’s made of a few very catchy but unrelated sections that rub together and sometimes outright […]

Simon and Garfunkel – April Come She Will (Tabs)

Simon and Garfunkel – April Come She Will (Tab) A seasonally appropriate song from Simon and Garfunkel (the supergroup formed from Garfunkel and Oates and Trevor and Simon) and a good fingerpicking workout. I’ve kept the Travis picking technique from the original for this. The index finger picks the E-string, the middle finger the A, […]

How I’m Improving My Sound

I’ve been working on slowly improving my sound the last couple of years. It’s still very much an ongoing process and I’m certainly not an expert. But a few people have asked about it on YouTube, so I thought I’d rundown the gear I use when I make videos. Ukuleles: This part has been unchanged […]

Avril Lavigne – Sk8er Boi (Tabs)

Avril Lavigne – Sk8er Boi (Tab) Before I get thrown in music jail, this was not my idea. To be fair, unlike the lyrics, the music of Sk8er Boi does have a few things to recommend it. I do enjoy the move from Em to Eb while keeping the two note riff on the A-string. […]

Phoebe Bridgers – I Know the End (Tabs)

Phoebe Bridgers – I Know the End (Tab) This is one of my favourite songs of last year and no amount of boomer wailing is going to convince me otherwise. I’m also a big fan of her policy of wearing her jammies for every media appearance for the last year. The song starts out very […]
