Colbie Caillat – Tied Down

Colbie Caillat – Tied Down (Chords) With its laid back island vibes, it no surprise that Colbie Caillat‘s summer hit Bubbly inspired plenty of ukulele covers, despite using the term ‘bubbly face’ as a compliment. Her album also features a similarly laid back catchy tune played on uke: Tied Down. It’s also very simple to […]

Lightspeed Champion – Tell Me What It’s Worth

Lightspeed Champion – Tell Me What It’s Worth (Chords) There are plenty of pictures of Lightspeed Champion with a ukulele but it’s not often you see him playing the ukulele. I was hoping there’d be a little uke on his new album, but no such luck. So, I’ve written up his latest single Tell Me […]

Camera Obscura – Cock Up Your Beaver

Camera Obscura – Cock Up Your Beaver (Chords) I’m going to get so much comment spam on this post. Since I tabbed out Scotland the Brave for Burns Night (I’ve updated that post with a longer tab), I thought I’d also do an actual Burns song. Cock Up Your Beaver is, apparently, a call to […]

Noah and the Whale – Five Years Time

Noah and the Whale – Five Years Time (Chords) Sometimes you choose a job, and sometimes a job chooses you. I’m guessing when it came time for the BBC to get a correspondent to follow Greenpeace’s attempts to stop Japanese whale hunting – Jonah found himself in the latter position. Whether or not their name […]

Ukulele 101: How To Read Ukulele Tab Part 1

Happy 2008 everyone. I hope you enjoyed the holiday season and got plenty of ukulele practice in. Over the hols I’ve been busy writing a guide to reading ukulele tab. A few people have asked me about it and I’ve had to direct them elsewhere which isn’t ideal as I don’t think there’s a really […]

Sarah Silverman – Give the Jew Girl Toys

Sarah Silverman – Give the Jew Girl Toys (Chords) Like Mr Garrison, I’m very eager spread the love to all during the holiday season. So here are the chords for Sarah Silverman’s protest against Santa’s blatantly anti-semitic present giving policies. I’ve written the song up in D-tuning as it makes the chords much easier to […]

The Ramones – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight)

The Ramones – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight) (Chords) Helen Love’s cover of The Ramones’ Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight) is the sound of Christmas as far as I’m concerned. You can download it at Filthy Little Angels. You’ll have to hunt for it on there but it’s well worth it. […]

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (Chords)

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (Chords) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is the simplest Christmas song and ideal for kids. I’ve tried to simplify the chords even further for this arrangement. For a fair chunk of the song, a C6 chord is being played (all strings open). I’ve written C6 every time but using a […]

Eartha Kitt – Santa Baby

Winger – Santa Baby (mp3) Winger – Santa Baby (Chords) You might know this song in its versions by Eartha Kitt, Kylie, Madonna or Marilyn Monroe (who never sang it), but my favourite is by Winger (no, not the hair metal band Winger). Not only is it played on ukulele, it has uke-adapted lyrics – […]
