Stephen Sanchez – Until I Found You (Tabs)

Stephen Sanchez – Until I Found You (Tab) In a rare case of being almost up to date, here’s a tab of Stephen Sanchez’s retro ballad and TikTok smash Until I Found You. Intro: The retro touches start in the intro with a classic IV to minor iv chord change (C to Cm) in this […]

Old Crow Medicine Show/Darius Rucker – Wagon Wheel (Tabs)

Old Crow Medicine Show – Wagon Wheel (Tab) Old Crow Medicine Show’s Wagon Wheel is pretty much ubiquitous wherever ukuleles are strummed. Or any instrument is strummed. Even Kesha has had a go at it. Part of the reason it’s so popular is its long gestation taking in Curtis Jone’s Roll Me Mama and Bob […]

Friday Links: Maui Strong, Dick Van Dyke

Brandi Carlile – You and Me on the Rock (Tabs)

Brandi Carlile – You and Me on the Rock (Tab) Here’s my take on Brandi Carlile’s Joni Mitchell influenced and very catchy You and Me on the Rock. Intro: The Mitchell influence kicks in right away with a Big Yellow Taxi-esque strumming riff. Verse: And continues with a wordy verse. It’s tricky to hit every […]

The Band – The Weight (Tabs)

The Band – The Weight (Tab) A version of The Weight in tribute to Robbie Robertson. Robertson appeared on the Playing for Change version alongside some uke from Taimane. Intro: Usually, you’re free to play around with the intro. Not in this case. Robertson’s intro is iconic and doing anything other than playing it as […]

Placebo – Pure Morning (Tabs)

Placebo – Pure Morning (Tab) Placebo’s Pure Morning is hilariously unsuited the ukulele. But it’s always fun to have a go at those. You can decide for yourself whether it actually works because I’m not sure. There’s no chord progression at all in the song. It’s just an E drone the whole way through (Eb […]
