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. […]

Christmas Carols for Ukulele by John King: Review

Christmas is coming fast and it’s time to start practicing a few tunes to entertain the family. With John King’s Classical Ukulele and Famous Solos and Duets for ‘Ukulele being the two best ukulele tab books around and his arrangements of Carol of the Bells and What Child Is This? being great, I felt pretty […]

Garfunkel and Oates – Present Face (Chords and Tab)

Garfunkel and Oates – Present Face (Chords) I’ve been patiently waiting to put this one up since seeing this video starring ‘thingamy off of Heroes‘ and ‘was he the one who was in My Name Is Earl once?’ I don’t know why they uploaded in January. Anyhoo, eleven months later it’s finally December and I […]

Christmas Ukulele: You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch (Chords)

You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch (Chords)(PDF) I always use this song as the soundtrack to my pre-Christmas chores: stealing presents, setting light to trees and punching reindeer. So I’ve written up the chords for Jonathan K Miller’s excellent ukulele version.
