Winter Wonderland (Tab)

Winter Wonderland (Tabs) I did the chords for this Bernard and Smith tune way back in 2008 so it’s long overdue a run through a tabbed version. I’ve gone with a chord arrangement for most of the tune. That means I’m just holding down chords and strumming. Then emphasising the melody while letting the other […]

Run the Jewels – A Christmas Fucking Miracle (Intro Tab)

Even though it features no animal noises whatsoever*, A Christmas Fucking Miracle is one of my favourite Christmas songs. For this tab of the intro I’m picking all the strings at the same time.

Tripping Lily/Mindy Smith – Santa Will Find You (Chords)

Tripping Lily – Santa Will Find You Tripping Lily’s ukulele cover of Mindy Smith’s Santa Will Find You has been the video to kick off every Christmas UkeTube since 2009. The song has the perfect mix of melancholy and jazziness for a Christmas song. And Tripping Lily played it so well. So it’s well past […]
