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 thinest and restrung it. So, to save you from the social disgrace I experienced, I’ve put together a […]

Christmas UkeTube

That’s it from me for another year. I’ll be back on 21st January. Until then be sure to keep the true meaning of Christmas in your hearts with, “Drinking, noise and games and dice, appointing of kings and feasting of slaves, singing naked, clapping of frenzied hands, an occasional ducking of corked faces in icy […]

The Hives and Cyndi Lauper – A Christmas Duel (Chords)

The Hives and Cyndi Lauper – A Christmas Duel (Chords) It could be the swearing that does it for me rather than the Swedishness. But that would make this my favourite Christmas song. Suggested Strumming All down strums for the first bit (and the odd other bit in the song). And this one should see […]

Christmas Karma

Does anyone use the word ‘spawny’ any more? For those of you not exactly my age and level of geekiness, ‘spawny’ was a word commonly used in early 90s computer magazines by people like Radion Automatic to describe inept gamers who managed to succeed in a game despite obvious lack of skill by, for example, […]

Hello Saferide – iPod X-mas (Chords)

Hello Saferide – iPod X-mas (Chords) I’m not sure why it should be, but my two favourite indie Christmas songs are both from Swedish bands. One, by the Hives, is coming up on Tuesday but today’s comes from Hello Saferide. I don’t think it’s available anymore (depending on what this page says) but you can […]

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (Instrumental)(Tab)

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (Tab) Parish notice: There was a bit of a mishap with a premature UkeTube post. If you find it in your feedreader or email, you can safely ignore it. With Christmas being just around the corner, I thought I’d drop the fancy picking and go with a simple thumb […]

And she’s put together an excellent selection of Christmas and non-Christmas tracks. As always, there’s plenty of swearing so those with sensitive ears should tread carefully. If you want to […]

Rocky and Balls – The Christmas Song Song (Chords)

Rocky and Balls – The Christmas Song Song Sophie Madeleine’s much anticipated second album The Rhythm You Started is out now and packed with fantastic songs. You can listen and buy on Bandcamp (if you’re cherry-picking the essential tracks are 1, 2, 3 and 5). Which leads nicely into this years most requested song. Suggested […]

Jingle Bell Rock (Tab)

Jingle Bell Rock (Tab) One of the many, many, many things I love about Christmas is that you can unselfconsciously use as many jazzy chords as you like. So I take every chance I get in this arrangement to use the devil’s interval and bust out my favourite turnaround chord of all time: the +5. […]
