Alanis Morissette – Hand in My Pocket (Tabs)

Alanis Morissette – Hand in My Pocket (Tab) Another 90s classic today: Alanis Morissette’s Hand in My Pocket. The intro and verses are very straightforward. It’s one chord all the way through and you don’t have to move up the neck. But things get much trickier in the transition into the chorus. There’s more movement […]

Neil Diamond – Song Sung Blue (Tabs)

Neil Diamond – Song Sung Blue (Tab) I was completely unaware of Neil Diamond’s Song Sung Blue before it was suggested on Patreon. Although I was familiar with Mozart’s Piano Concerto 21 which heavily influenced it. The chill organ intro is my favourite part of the song. I’m picking this using one-finger-per-string. The picking in […]

Guitar Pro 8: My Thoughts

Guitar Pro has been my tabbing software of choice since I started Uke Hunt fifteen years ago. So the release of a new version prompts equal parts excitement and fear at Woodshed Towers. I’ve been using Guitar Pro 8 for a few weeks now (on a Mac) so I thought I’d share my experience with […]

The Beautiful South – A Little Time (Tabs)

The Beautiful South – A Little Time (Tab) The Beautiful South are one of those bands that are so British I can’t imagine them making it huge around the globe. Nevertheless, they have some great tunes so I wanted to tab A Little Time. Plus what remains of The Beautiful South recent toured with, Uke […]

Johnny Cash/NIN – Hurt (Tabs)

Johnny Cash/Nine Inch Nails – Hurt (Tab) This arrangement of Hurt is very much based on the Cash version. But I was a massive Nine Inch Nails fan as an angsty teen, so some of that version might have slipped through. The plodding pace of this song makes it pretty easy to play. Just make […]

Patreon A massive thanks to all Uke Hunt’s Patreon backers for keeping the site up and running this month. And double thanks go to these legendary […]
