Christmas Ukulele 2: The Second Coming

Christmas is the one time of year when anyone who plays an instrument is expected to entertain friends and family at some point. 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 […]

Christmas UkeTube

Last post of 2011 (except the usual one for the Christmas uke-getters and possibly a podcast). I’ll be back mid-January. Until then, happy holidays (if you’re into that kind of thing) whatever that may be and however you choose to spend it. I’ll be eating, drinking, gambling and letting my servants wear my clothes in […]

Christmas Time Is Here (Tab)

Vince Guaraldi Trio – Christmas Time Is Here (Tab) Tis the season to be jazzy. And I’ve thrown some decidedly jazzy bits into this tune from A Charlie Brown Christmas. I’ve added an intro with a few licks (using the E minor pentatonic scale) and some discordant chords. It’s played very loosely so feel free […]

Away in a Manger (Tab)

Away in a Manger (Full Arrangement Tab) I thought I’d do a tab to give you an idea of what the stuff in the How to Play Christmas Ukulele ebook is like. Which, by the way, you can get $2 off if you use the code ‘armadillo’ by the 18th December. But I’m not sure […]

Chuck Berry – Run Run Rudolph (Chords)
