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. […]

Christmas Ukulele Tabs and Chords

A quick round up of the past two years’ worth of Christmas tabs and chords: 12 Days of Christmas (Chords) All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey (Chords and Tab) Christmas for Cowboys – John Denver/Ballard C Boyd (Chords) Cold Outside – Julia Nunes & Wade Johnson (Chords) Fairytale of New York […]

Weezer – The Christmas Song (Chords)

Weezer – The Christmas Song (Chords) Time to break out the Christmas songs. In case you’ve joined us in the last year, the Christmas tabbing policy is tabs for well known songs and chords for completely obscure songs. Thus neatly dividing themselves between songs you can’t play and songs you don’t want to play. Weezer’s […]

Merry Christmas Everyone!

That about wraps up another year. A Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Mele Kalikimaka, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa and standards-compliant Winterval to one and all. I’ll be taking a break and I’ll be back on the 22nd January (except for a post aimed at people who find a uke under their Christmas tree). Hopefully, with a […]

Christmas Uke Tube Part 2

The second part of the ukulele Christmas round up (part one is here) includes The Mad Tea Party (NSFW), Uni (again), Tricity Vogue (again), WS64 and more. If your ukulele xmas needs are not sated then check out Armelle’s Christmas ukulele world tour.

Half Man Half Biscuit – It’s Cliched to be Cynical at Christmas (Chords)

Half Man Half Biscuit – It’s Cliched to be Cynical at Christmas (Chords) My Christmas present to myself is to finally put some Half Man Half Biscuit on the blog. I was going to evangelize about HMHB, but they’re really a band you either love or don’t understand at all. Listen to Joy Division Oven […]

Zee Avi – No Christmas (Chords)

Zee Avi – No Christmas (Chords) No ukulele on this one but I had to post it anyway. Partly because I like it and partly because it shares its chords with one of my favourite Christmas songs of all time: Hello Saferide’s iPod Xmas. Suggested Strumming The bits of bass picking she uses in this […]

Garfunkel and Oates – Year End Letter (Chords)

Garfunkel and Oates – Year End Letter (Chords) Jay Leno has sky rocketed in my esteem recently. Last week he had Victoria Vox on and yesterday it was Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome. The pair were premiering a new Christmas song and, as always, it was hilarious. More than deserving of a fast-track chording. Visit […]

John Denver/Ballard C Boyd – Christmas for Cowboys

Ballard C Boyd – Christmas for Cowboys (Chords) This is one of my all time faves – I think it’s hilarious and quite touching at the same time. And I think Ballard C Boyd‘s ukulele version (from his 2007 Christmas record Christmas with U) is even better than the original. So it’s that one that […]

Julia Nunes & Wade Johnson – Cold Outside (Chords)

Julia Nunes and Wade Johnson – Cold Outside (Chords) It really must be the season of good will to all. I have some trouble picturing Wade Johnson seducing Julia Nunes. He seems far too nice. Nowhere near oleagenous enough to sing this song. But it’s a nice simple version for the uke. The only tricky […]
