Uke for Xmas? Read This!

When I got my first ukulele, I was completely clueless. This was in those dark, long forgotten days before the internet had been discovered. I didn’t even realise that the strings weren’t supposed to go thickest to thinnest and restrung it. So, to save you from the social disgrace I experienced, I’ve put together a […]

Allo Darlin’ – Space Christmas (Chords)

S P A C E Christmas by Allo Darlin’ Allo Darlin’ – Space Christmas (Chords) There’s an awful lot to recommend this song. It’s a very sweet Christmas song. It references Stephin Merritt (I think).

Which can be quite daunting if you don’t have something easy and recognisable to play. Particularly if you’re full of the Christmas pudding. But it’s nice to be able to entertain the […]

Eric Idle – Fuck Christmas (Chords)

Eric Idle – Fuck Christmas (Chords) I know a lot of you will relate to this song more than most of the Christmas songs I’ve posted. And I think a lot of people will feel like this at some point. But if you’re still in the Christmas spirit it’s your last chance to pick up […]

Christmas Ukulele 2 – Pre-Release

You might already know I’ve been working on a new Christmas ebook. The proper release will be on Wednesday. But it’s December already and I’ve had a fair few people wanting to buy it. So I’m doing a bit of a pre-release for the people who want it right now and don’t need to know […]

Carol of the Bells (Tab)

Carol of the Bells (MP3) Carol of the Bells (Tab) This tab was originally part of the How to Play Christmas Ukulele ebook (use the code “hamhand” – without quotes – before December and get $2 off) But it turned it out was a nightmare to play and didn’t fit with the easier tabs in […]
