Noah and the Whale – Jealous Kind of Love (Chords)

Noah and the Whale – Jealous Kind of Love (PDF) This little uke tune cropped up on the B-side to Shape of My Heart. It doesn’t seem to be available any more, but it’s rather lovely and a simple three chord song so I thought I’d write it up. The video cuts off but you […]

Kate Micucci & William H Macy – It’s Time to Get Laid (Chords)

Kate Micucci & William H Macy – It’s Time to Get Laid (Chords) She might not have had the chance to jam with him when they were making the film, but junkets give you much more time for ukeing it up. Bart Got A Room looks like a damn funny film. It’s got people from […]

Jungle Book – I Wanna Be Like You (Chords and Tab)

I Wanna Be Like You (Chords) This one is a big favourite with ukulele groups (as ably demonstrated by the Hull Ukulele Group). But it could have been written for Hobbit to sing. It’s a perfect fit. Which is a whole lot more than you can say about the Jonas Brothers. I somehow find it […]

Ingrid Michaelson – You and I (Chords)

Ingrid Michaelson – You and I (Chords) I’m slightly concerned this one is going to anger the Indie Gods. Particularly since she’s played it with Jason Mraz a few times. But I’ve had a bunch of requests for it and I took a lot less convincing than I did with the song that won’t be […]

Kate Micucci – Let Us Be Happy Together (Chords)

Kate Micucci – Let Us Be Happy Together (Chords) Another adorable ukulele ditty from Kate Micucci’s appearance in Scrubs. The chords for this one are dead easy. The only trouble is that she’s playing in D-tuning. So you’ll have to tune up or face the dreaded E chord. Suggested Strumming Also dead easy, go with […]

Paolo Nutini – High Hopes (Chords)

Paolo Nutini – High Hopes (Chords) Polo Nutini’s ukulele may have met an unfortunate end but this ukulele ditty (from the upcoming Sunny Side Up) turned out nice. And it’s a dead simple song – perfect for beginners. It’s just baby’s first uke chords: C, F and G. Suggested Strumming Old faithful: d – d […]

Sesame Street (Easy Chords)

Sesame Street (Easy Chords) Jayne left a comment on the original chords for Sesame Street suggesting an easy version of the chords. And, since it’s a song the kiddies might be interested in playing, I thought I’d go for it. Suggested Strumming For the first part you can use: d – d u d – […]

Black Kids – I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend to Dance With You (Chords)

Black Kids – I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend… (Chords) I do like a good bit of shounting so I couldn’t resist writing up the ukulele version of Black Kids’ I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend To Write Songs With Really Long Song Titles That Go Off the End of the Line and Makes the […]

NeverShoutNever! – Your Biggest Fan (Chords)

NeverShoutNever – Your Biggest Fan (Chords) Here are the chords for the rest of NeverShoutNever’s Me & My Uke EP due to popular demand and to help ukulele-playing school boys impress girls (which is the closest to a noble calling this blog is ever likely to get). Your Biggest Fan is another fairly straight forward […]

Wellington International Ukulele Trio – Blue Smoke (Chords)

Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra – Blue Smoke (Chords) Lest you think ukuleles and New Zealand are a new phenomenon, the first record entirely produced in New Zealand, Blue Smoke, was a uke-featuring hapa haole song recorded when the technology was just reaching New Zealand way back in 1993 (you can read the full, and more […]
