The Proclaimers – Sunshine on Leith (Tab)

The Proclaimers – Sunshine on Leith (Tab)

I posted this video last December and in all the excitement of 2020 completely forgot to post it until a YouTube commenter reminded me.

It’s a very simple song. Just beginner-level chords and a contained melody. There’s only one jog up the fretboard in bar 31.

The restraint of the music certainly doesn’t stop it being emotionally impactful. The simplicity and openness of the song makes it the perfect choice for the Hibernian Football Club song. So good it was voted best football anthem. Although I’d put it second behind You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Rebecca Sugar Tab Collection

Rebecca Sugar Tab Collection

I’ve done many tabs of Rebecca Sugar’s ukulele songs over the years. With Steven Universe coming to a close, I thought it was a good time to collect them together into one ebook.

If you find this ebook useful please consider donating to Cartoon Network’s fundraiser for National Bail Out.


1. Change Your Mind

2. Escapism

3. Everything Stays

4. Here Comes a Thought

5. It’s Over, Isn’t It?

6. Time Adventure

7. What’s the Use of Feeling (Blue)?

Steven Universe – Ruby Rider (Tab)

This one is different from most of the Steven Universe songs I’ve covered. I think it’s the first time I’ve done one that wasn’t written by Rebecca Sugar. It was written by Jeff Liu and performed by Charlyne Yi.

And it’s the first time I’ve done a full chord and melody arrangement. It’s not too difficult though. The only challenge is a few big stretches e.g. the notes on the fourth and fifth frets in bar 6. There are no fancy chords to tackle. Just a trip up the neck in the middle section to navigate.

Rebecca Sugar – Change Your Mind (Tab)

Rebecca Sugar – Change Your Mind (Tab)

Rebecca Sugar recently uploaded an extended version of Change Your Mind from Steven Universe to raise money for National Bail Out. And, since I’ve been enjoying playing the Steven Universe songs the past few years, I thought I’d give it a proper send of with a few more tabs.

The song features the elements we’ve come to expect from Sugar’s songs including some slick picking runs and the inevitable Cmaj7 chord. And it uses one finger per string picking all the way through.

Rebecca Sugar has been raising money for National Bail Out with a stream with Estelle (uke action starts at about 15 minutes) and auctioning off her ukulele.

Aloha Radio Hawaii is a beautiful album recreating the sound of the “golden age of Hawaiian music”. Although the project’s founder Dave Way makes the slightly strange assertion that Hawaiian musicians can’t play this way anymore so they had to use LA session musicians to keep it authentic.

– Musician, podcaster and author of The Chill Skill, Niall Breslin sent out 400 ukuleles to keep spirits up during the lockdown.
– UK Health Secretary, Matt Hancock tries to distract from the bad news.

Community Theme (Tab)

Community Theme (Tab)

A short and sweet one: the theme to the TV show Community a.k.a. At Least It Was Here by The 88. It’s a jaunty little tune that transfers very nicely to uke. The highlight here is the rising chord move of C5-C6-C7 that builds the tension perfectly into the second half of the tune.
