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 […]

Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence (Tab)

Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence (Tab) Hello, Bret. A wuzza wuzza. This is 1983 David Bowie. I’m I’m buried up to my neck in sand. Am I freaking you out? (you can’t tell – because it’s written down – but I’m doing a brilliant impression of Adam and Joe’s impression of FotC’s impression of David Bowie […]

O Christmas Tree (Single Note Version) (Tab)

Oh Christmas Tree (Single Note Version)(Tab) MP3 Another melody notes plus chords Christmas tune. Must admit, I can’t stand this one. Strumming This bit is quite tricky. I’m using all down strums but you have to be careful how many strums you use. F = 6 down strums Gm = 2 down strums C7 = […]

U900 / The Ventures – Sleigh Ride (Tab)

U900 – Sleigh Ride (Tab) The adorable Japanese duo have put together a Christmas album. But they don’t stray away from Ventures territory with this one. The main melody on this one is played on a low-G ukulele with a pick. You can get away with using your fingers, but the low-G is a must. […]

Silent Night (Single Note Version)(Tab)

Silent Night (Single Note Version)(Tab) MP3 Since it’s Christmas I thought I’d let you take a break from the tricky arrangements and I’d put up a couple of single note arrangements (along with easy chords) of a couple of Christmas tunes. For kids, newbies and people too drunk and bloated to play anything more complicated. […]
