Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit (Tabs)

Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit (Tab) I’m still tied to the 90s but for once it’s not a one hit wonder but Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit. Teen Spirit has Nirvana’s traditional quiet-loud-quiet-loud dynamics. In this arrangement, the loud bits are done with strumming and the quiet bits are fingerpicked. I’ve shortened a couple […]

Marcy Playground – Sex and Candy (Tabs)

Marcy Playground – Sex and Candy (Tab) Following on from No Rain with another 90s one-hit wonder: Marcy Playgraound’s Sex and Candy. The song only has verses and choruses but they still manage to sneak in three key changes. The verses are in G and the choruses in Bb. The key change from the verse […]

George Michael – Careless Whisper (Tabs)

George Michael – Careless Whisper (Tab) For this arrangement, I’ve stuck fairly closely to the George Michael original. But I’ve listened to the Ben Folds and Rufus Wainwright version more often so some of that version has snuck into this arrangement. And, of course, the Sexy Sax Man version is definitive. The chords are the […]

Blind Melon – No Rain (Tabs)

Blind Melon – No Rain (Tab) Here’s my take on Blind Melon’s massive 90s hit (at least partly thanks to Bee Girl). The arrangement starts off with the iconic guitar riff. It’s a little challenging but sounds great on uke. I recommend learning this bit even if you don’t bother with the rest of the […]

When Johnny Comes Marching Home (Tabs)

When Johnny Comes Marching Home (Tab) No one requested this one. I watched Dr Strangelove last week (for obvious reasons) and was inspired to knock up a quick version of this American Civil War tune from the soundtrack. I’ve included a couple of fretting suggestions in the tab (the numbers underneath the tab). The trickiest […]
