Friday Links: Uke Sales Boom

Demand for ukuleles on Amazon rose more than any other instrument at the start of the pandemic according to Pattern. A new album from Uke Hunt favourite Phredd, Quarantine Tunes, is a collection of performances he’s done for kids’ clubs, libraries and uke festivals over the last year. Another long-time favourite, Howlin’ Hobbit has started […]

Morrissey – Irish Blood English Heart (Chords and Tab)

Morrissey – Irish Blood English Heart (Chords) I first started working on this song three years ago. But while I was putting it together Morrissey went on one of his rants and I lost interest. But his recent fued with The Simpsons has motivated me to resurrect it. The chords could not be simpler. Just […]

Robert Schumann – Vanitas Vanitatum Mit Humor (Tabs)

Robert Schumann – Vanitas Vanitatum Mit Humor (Tabs) I’ve been getting into classical music much more over the pandemic. I’ve occasionally got the over-ambitious impulse to try something on the ukulele. And the first part of Robert Schumann’s Five Pieces in a Folk Style is the only one to have made it through to this […]

Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight (Tabs)

Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight (Tab) Phil Collins has one, “I will never forgive you for cheating,” song and one, “please forgive me for cheating,” song per marriage (he has a lot of these songs). This is the former. I’ve cut the intro way down from the original version. You’re welcome to use […]

Cat Stevens – Morning Has Broken (Tabs)

Cat Stevens – Morning Has Broken (Tabs) For this arrangement I worked from the Cat Stevens version. But a few bits of the version I sang in primary school might have slipped in. The two main sections of this song are wildly different in terms of difficulty. The verses are very straightforward. It’s a gentle […]

U2 – With or Without You (Tabs)

U2 – With or Without You (Tab) The chords here are dead simple. It’s just G-D-Em-C all the way through (i.e. the I-V-vi-IV progression or the I’m Yours progression as ukers know it). So you have plenty of space to make that beautiful melody sing. There’s a lot of scope for playing the supporting notes […]
