Bob Marley and the Wailers – One Love (Tabs)

Bob Marley & the Wailers – One Love (Tab) One Love first came out in a ska version in 1965. But my arrangement is based on the later, more laid-back and more famous reggae version. You might have noticed that good-time island vibes and togetherness are not my métier. So I’m sure you can improve […]

Nico/Jackson Browne – These Days (Tabs)

Nico – These Days (Tabs) These Days has been covered many times by acts including Elliott Smith and St Vincent. Even Miley did an excellent version. Drake, not so much. But the song was written by Jackson Browne and first released by Nico. This arrangement is based on Nico’s version rather the more laid-back Jackson […]

R.E.M. – Man on the Moon (Tabs)

R.E.M. – Man on the Moon (Tab) I tabbed R.E.M.’s Losing My Religion a while back. So high time I did a song from their follow-up Automatic for the People: Man on the Moon Intro: Plenty of room to play around with ideas in the intro. I’m just picking out notes from a few chord […]

Joe Hisaishi – Summer (from Kikujiro) (Tabs)

Joe Hisaishi – Summer (Tab) Joe Hisaishi is a prolific film composer (I only realised while researching this post that he scored a movie I watched while working on this piece). But he’s best known for his scores for the Studio Ghibli films and for Takeshi Kitano. Summer comes from one of Kitano’s gentler movies: […]

Here are his notes: ‘Brevities‘ is a collection of short solo pieces for baritone ukulele aimed at the intermediate fingerpicker.

Keane – Somewhere Only We Know (Tabs)

Keane – Somewhere Only We Know (Tab) Here’s my take on Keane’s mega-hit Somewhere Only We Know. Intro: All down-strums here to give an authentic dad-rock feel. Verse and Pre-Chorus: Switching to fingerpicking using a one-finger-per-string set up. Chorus: Adding some strums here on the Em chord and picking more heavily than before. You can […]
